Former Liverpool player Kristoffer Peterson says he has 'fantastic memories' of the club

An ex-Liverpool player has taken to Twitter to express his love for the club he left last summer.

Swedish winger Kristoffer Peterson has taken to Twitter to express his appreciation for his time at Liverpool’s academy.

Peterson left Anfield for Dutch side FC Utrecht back in August, shortly after impressing for Brendan Rodgers’ senior side during pre-season.

Prior to that he had featured 24 times for Liverpool’s under-21 side, scoring six goals and providing four assists; but he never experienced competitive first-team action.

Despite that, he clearly has fond memories of his time at the club, writing the following message on Twitter this weekend in regards to his former side:

“Made friends forever and the youth coaches I am really grateful for; some fantastic memories made here at the academy.”

Peterson joined Liverpool from Savedalens IF and spent over three years on Merseyside. His pre-season form last summer, scoring in friendlies against Brondby and Preston North End, suggested he could break into Rodgers’ first-team plans but he left soon after.

Still, who knows what the future may hold, with Liverpool clearly making quite the mark on him?
