Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe plans to add goals to his game.

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has told the club’s official website the area where he plans to work on during pre-season.

The youngster suffered with a knee problem during the second half of the 2014-15 campaign following his return from a loan spell at Championship outfit Derby County.

Ibe, though, still played well for the Reds and established himself as a regular in manager Brendan Rodgers’ starting line-up.

In 12 Premier League appearances, the 19-year-old created six chances, had a pass accuracy of 87%, and won four headers, 24 dribbles and four tackles.

Ibe, though, believes that he can still improve, especially on his shooting, as he plans to return to pre-season training earlier than others.

"I’ll be working with Alex Inglethorpe on my shooting,” the teenager told Liverpool’s official website. “I know I need to improve on every aspect of my game.

"But I know too that goalscoring gives you confidence. It can lift other parts of your game to new levels.”


Ibe failed to score in the Premier League for Liverpool last season and had a shot accuracy of just 44%.

For Derby, the youngster scored five goals and had a pass accuracy of 48% in 20 Championship games.

The England Under-20 international does need to work on his shooting, as the stats suggest, but he need not be overly worried about it.

Ibe is only 19 and does not play in a position from where he can score goals regularly. However, if the teenager can add goals to his game and can chip in from time to time, then it is only going to make him more important for Liverpool.
