Young Liverpool defender Ryan McLaughlin praises Jordon Ibe

Liverpool's Ryan McLaughlin has been speaking about his teammate Jordon Ibe.

Liverpool’s young right-back Ryan McLaughlin has become the latest player to take part in a question-and-answer session for the Reds’ official website.

The 20-year-old follows in the footsteps of the likes of Jordan Rossiter, Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson who have all been quizzed in the last few months, and one answer in particular stood out.

When McLaughlin’s young teammates have been asked who the most skilful player is at their level, the answer has almost always been Ryan Kent. But when the full-back was asked the same question, he identified Jordon Ibe is the player with the most talent at his level.

Ibe is currently on loan at Championship side Derby County, where he has made 17 appearances for the Rams, scoring four goals in that time. And having already made three appearances for Liverpool’s first-team huge things are expected of the talented teenager.

McLaughlin clearly agrees and it will be interesting to see if Ibe’s loan spell proves to be the catalyst for a sustained run in Brendan Rodgers’ senior side.
