The two 16-year-olds were name-checked by a Liverpool coach in a recent interview.
Liverpool coach Pepijn Lijnders has been speaking to the club’s official website about the Reds’ Talent Group – a batch of players between the ages of 14 and 21 who get the chance to train regularly with the club’s senior stars in order to aid their development.
It is a wonderful initiative and one that is sure to benefit Liverpool for years to come, with their young talents getting the chance to work with experienced professionals on a regular basis.
While Liverpool fans are well aware of the next generation coming through the ranks – the likes of Cameron Brannagan, Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson – this initiative allows those far younger to also train under the watchful eye of recently appointed manager Jurgen Klopp.
“We have players of 16 training with the first-team on a weekly basis, with Philippe (Coutinho), with Adam (Lallana),” Lijnders told liverpoolfc.com.
Woodburn is a centre forward who has been capped twice for Wales’ under-17 side while Kane is a central midfielder who has represented England at under-16, under-17 and now under-18 level.
Both players are 16 and both could have bright futures at Liverpool, provided they take the opportunities given to them, starting with their involvement with the Talent Group.
