Liverpool youngster Sergi Canos on the benefits of training at Melwood

One of Liverpool's hottest young prospects has been reflecting on the benefits of the international break.

Liverpool youngster Sergi Canos has been speaking to the club’s official website about training at Melwood during the international break and hoping to impress manager Brendan Rodgers in the process.

The 18-year-old Spaniard has featured nine times for Liverpool’s under-21 side to date, providing three assists and scoring his first goal in the recent victory against West Ham United.

Overall, the right winger has scored 18 goals at all Academy levels so far this season and that kind of form is sure to have got the attention of Rodgers. But training in front of the boss will also play a big part in any future chances Canos has.

“It’s amazing to train here because it’s where the first team train every day and where the top players are training, and that is an unbelievable feeling,” the Liverpool youngster said.

“This is a big chance for us as they (the manager and coaching staff) trust in us and we can try to step up to the first-team and that is our motivation.”

Canos impressed in the UEFA Youth League earlier this season, scoring one goal and setting up an additional three, and he is continuing to show the talent that previously saw him on the books of Barcelona.

The winger swapped the Spanish giants for Liverpool and at this rate, his decision to pursue first-team football in England could be rewarded sooner rather than later.
