Sheyi Ojo explains what Brendan Rodgers wants from his Wolves loan

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

The talented Liverpool youngster will be hoping to get as many games under his belt as possible while at Molineux.

Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo is clearly a player with a big future, and for the next 12 months that will see him showcasing his talents in Wolverhampton, after he joined Wolves on loan for the new season. Having recently signed a long-term contract at Anfield, Ojo told the Wolves site what he was hoping to achieve at Molineux.

“Brendan Rodgers told me that he wants me to get more experience and Wolves is a great place to do that," Ojo told the club website.

“It’s a club moving forward, trying to get promotion. I’m just really happy to be a part of it; hopefully I can make a good impression and do well this season.

“It’s a really good club. It’s got great facilities. All of the players are nice, they have welcomed me to the club and the staff are brilliant as well."

The prospect of Ojo lining up alongside the other attacking stars at the club haven't just got supporters excited ahead of the match against Blackburn on Saturday, but the player himself is also eagerly awaiting the fixture.

"I’ve heard a lot about the attacking force with Benik Afobe and Nouha Dicko so I’m looking forward to linking up with them," he added. "Hopefully we can create some problems and score some goals.

“Everything’s going well, I’m just looking forward to starting the season this weekend."

Ojo is the latest in a string of talented young wingers to emerge from Liverpool's academy. Like Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe before him, the 18-year-old looks set to have a big future in the game, and it's no surprise that he is looking to get as many minutes as possible at a club who will hope to have a promotion shot this season.

Though Sterling was given a route straight into the Reds first team when he first emerged as a 17-year-old, Ibe made good use of a couple of loan spells in the Championship over the last year and a half, and returned from Derby at the turn of the year very much finding himself a important squad player at Anfield, going on to make 14 appearances for his parent club.

Having only just turned 18, Ojo will be hoping to have a similar impact in his loan at Molineux, after spending a few months at Wigan at the end of last season.

With Kenny Jackett surely looking for Wolves to to push on from their playoff-near miss in May and be a force throughout the season, and coming on the day that former winger Bakary Sako signed for Crystal Palace, Ojo could be the man to replace him. A tough ask for the youngster but not beyond his abilites.
