Wales manager Ryan Giggs has lavished praise on Liverpool right-back Neco Williams following his recent performances in the first team.
The 18-year-old has impressed pundits and fans alike when given the opportunity by Jurgen Klopp. The fullback has looked impressive in the domestic cup competitions this season, and with the player having played for Wales at youth level, Giggs has been keeping a close eye on the youngster’s development. The Manchester United legend has been very pleased by what he has seen:
“We are looking at Neco because he is playing for a brilliant team at the moment and he has done really well when he has stepped up. When a player makes a few appearances in such a big club like Liverpool, he is suddenly catapulted into the public eye.”
“He is a fantastic player, still young and still learning, but the energy and quality he has shown when he has stepped up into the first team has been really good, so it’s exciting.”
Williams is reportedly also being targeted by England following his excellent start to life at senior level, which has seen him contribute two assists in just four appearances for the Reds’ first team.
The defender still has a way to go in terms of becoming a regular in Klopp’s squad, but it surely won’t be long before he is rivalling Trent Alexander-Arnold for a place in the starting eleven.
