Liverpool fans got a glimpse of the future when a young midfielder took to the field for their charity match on Sunday.
The charity match involving two teams of Liverpool All-stars saw some familiar faces return to Anfield, as stars past and present turned out either for Steven Gerrard’s side or Jamie Carragher’s men.
Alongside the likes of Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Pepe Reina were some younger Liverpool hopefuls, with 18-year-old striker Jerome Sinclair understandably getting plenty of post-match attention from fans hoping he ultimately makes the grade at Liverpool.
But as impressive as Sinclair was, another Liverpool teenager was also on show who could go on to great things at Anfield.
Cameron Brannagan is an 18-year-old attacking midfielder who came on in the second half of Sunday’s match, replacing Mario Balotelli.
Despite the friendly nature of the occasion, many players would have been nervous in the illustrious company, but not Brannagan…at least not outwardly.
The Liverpool youngster put in a very impressive shift, showing tantalising glimpses of the player he may one day become.
At the end of last season, the Independent reported that Brannagan was attracting interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.
Nothing came of that, at least for now, but the alleged interest shows just how gifted Brannagan is.
With 34 appearances for Liverpool’s under-21s already under his belt, it should only be a matter of time before the teenager becomes the latest in a long line to make his debut for the senior side.
