Samed Yesil praised by Liverpool's under-21 coach for scoring brace with 'wrong foot'

A goal-scoring return has seen one of Liverpool's most exciting young players praised by his under-21 coach.

Liverpool’s under-21 coach Michael Beale has been speaking to the club’s official website about Samed Yesil’s return to goal-scoring form.

The 20-year-old German has been blighted by serious injury for the last two years, but he was back doing what he does best as Liverpool’s under-21 side overcame their Tottenham Hotspur counterparts 3-1.

Yesil scored a brace on the night, with Ryan Kent netting the other for the Reds, but it was the former that Beale reserved the most praise for.

“It was great to see Samed getting two goals,” Beale said, “and only he could have scored the type of goals he got tonight, and with his wrong foot.”

It is telling that Yesil scored both goals with his weaker foot, and further proof of just how deadly he is in front of goal when fit.

He will now be looking to put two years of injury hell behind him, and if he can do that there is no reason why he could not get more first-team chances as early as next season.

No one will rush him back, but Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is sure to know what a good young player he has and he may have shown a glimpse of what tomorrow will bring, both for the player and the club lucky enough to have him.
