Liverpool Fc boss Jurgen Klopp names Exciting young trio who made ‘proper impression’ on League Cup run.
Jurgen Klopp has pointed out exciting young trio who made a “proper impression” during Liverpool’s run to the League Cup final.
Ahead of the Chelsea clash on Sunday, the Reds have used a wide sum of 29 different players on their way to Wembley, including seven called up from the Academy.
They joined established academy products including, Caoimhin Kelleher Williams, Curtis Jones, and, of course, Trent Alexander-Arnold as Liverpool made it past Norwich, Preston, Leicester, and Arsenal.
The Red’s boss Jurgen Klopp described the prospect of lifting the League Cup as being for the whole club, but especially for the academy ranks.
The manager named Kaide Gordon,Tyler Morton , and Conor Bradley as having made a “proper impression” in the tournament.
“All the different games were obviously difficult and we made a lot of changes, played a lot of kids,” he told the club’s official website.
“So if – a big if – we win the competition then it’s a competition really for the whole club and especially for the academy as well because we used players from the U18s, we obviously used players from the U23s.
“They are all really good and that’s why we used them, but some of them made obviously a proper impression, like Tyler, for example, like Kaide, for example, like Conor, for example – not to miss anybody.
“So it’s a really important competition and I think we used it the right way.”
Though the squad is now healthy to the point that they no longer find themselves in direct contention for a place on the bench on matchdays, it is safe to say that trio have earned a long-term role under Klopp.
The reds boss also speaks on the importance of giving opportunities to academy players in the league Cup, despite speculations of the reds not treating the competition with respect in recent years.
“That we changed so much is not because of the competition, it’s just because of the number of games we have,” Klopp added.
“That’s why it’s so difficult to get through.”
