Liverpool youngster Cameron Brannagan continued to show just why he has such a bright future at Anfield as he helped the Reds’ under-19s win the 2015 Volksbank Cup at the weekend.
The 19-year-old later took to Twitter to post an image of the promising young side lifting the trophy, which came after a penalty shoot-out victory against FC Nurnberg.
Brannagan was not the only youngster on show who has been talked of as a potential first-team star, with Sergi Canos and Sheyi Ojo also involved, but it was the former who really impressed, ultimately crowned Player of the Tournament.
Those who have seen Brannagan develop in recent years felt he could make his senior breakthrough before the end of the campaign, especially when you consider he was named on the bench for Liverpool’s recent games against Arsenal, Newcastle United and Hull City.
But it was actually Jerome Sinclair who got the chance first, coming on as a late substitute against Chelsea.
That said, Brannagan should not have to wait too much longer for his chance. The captain of Liverpool’s under-21s has shone week in, week out at that level and Reds boss Brendan Rodgers surely cannot ignore him for much longer.
This summer is likely to be a big one for the player, with an impressive pre-season potentially all that stands between him and that first opportunity to show what he can do in the top flight.
