‘It doesn’t get any better than that’: Liverpool youngster blown away by 28-year-old player in training

Liverpool academy youngster Luke Chambers says he really looks up to Andy Robertson when training with the first-team at Kirkby.

Taking to an interview with the official Liverpool website, the 18-year-old has spoken of his admiration for Jurgen Klopp’s left-backs, as they are invaluable to his progression as a player in the same position.

“Robbo [Andy Robertson] is the one I look up to and Kostas [Tsimikas] as well, who has also been a big help to me,” said Chambers.

“When you are up there training with someone like Robbo, it doesn’t get any better than that, so I just keep learning from him, looking at what he does on the pitch and then try to put that into my game.”

On a personal note, Chambers has enjoyed a successful season thus far.

After his inclusion in the senior team’s pre-season tour of Asia, in which he featured against Manchester United, the youngster made the Reds’ bench for their recent Carabao Cup victory over Derby County.

Having been at the Merseyside academy since the age of six, training alongside Liverpool’s senior players must be a surreal experience for the teenager.

As an 18-year-old in the youth set-up, getting to play with the first-team can only benefit one’s game.

The speed and intensity of training is much quicker, and the difference in physicality is clearly evident.

Before going out on loan in search of minutes in the senior’s game, training is the perfect place to get up to speed with the step-up from academy football.

The likes of Chambers are yet to get their chance in an official match under Klopp.

However, youngsters such as Ben Doak have shown in recently weeks that the opportunity is still there.

Hard-work will be rewarded, so performances on the training pitch should at the highest level possible if academy players are to get a sniff of first-team action.
