Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is determined to repay the faith of Jurgen Klopp by proving himself as a genuine first-team option.
The 18-year-old has been sidelined by ankle and knee problems for 13 months but is keen to put the injury issues firmly in the past.
He is regarded as a star of the future and Liverpool placed their faith in him with a five-year contract last summer.
Klopp has already highlighted pre-season with his squad as the point Brewster should focus on, but the Reds boss has kept in close contact with the teenager, reassuring him about his future plans.
“It has been a frustrating time, I’ve been out for a long time and I don’t wish that on anyone,” Brewster told Press Association Sport. “It’s happened and I’m finally back fit and doing what I love and pushing to get back in the team.
“To know that the boss really wants me to be in his plans for the future is amazing, especially a boss like him. “They could easily have left me at the academy to do my rehab but they wanted me to do my rehab with them, so I can’t thank them enough.
“During this injury I’ve had that, he has been there from beginning to the end and to know he still wants me – even though it’s been so long – gives me a great boost.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
