‘One Heck Of A Talent’ ‘He Is The Real Deal’ ‘Our Next Trent’ Fans Excited As Teenager Scores Again In Liverpool Friendly Win

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is making a big impression during pre-season for the Reds. He scored his third goal in two matches in the 3-1 friendly win against Bradford yesterday.

The 19-year-old is looking to make up for lost time after spending 14 months on the sidelines with knee and ankle injuries.

Fans on Twitter are excited to see more of Brewster, and are backing him to make the breakthrough into the first team at Anfield:

Manager Jurgen Klopp revealed last week that the teenager will have a prominent role for the Reds this season:

“Rhian Brewster is a top striker, a top talent, and I am really happy. I told him already, he has an important role this year – but how important? Again, it depends on him and we will see.”

With Daniel Sturridge having left on a free transfer, Brewster does have a pathway to the first team, with Divock Origi his only other rival to be Roberto Firmino’s understudy.

The youngster could even have a shot of starting the Community Shield with Firmino expected to return late for preseason following his exploits at the Copa America with Brazil.
