Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told the club’s official website that Rhian Brewster has a big role to play next season.

Klopp has revealed that he has told the 19-year-old striker that, and has spoken highly of the English teenager.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Brewster when asked if it is a big season for him: “100 per cent, but again it depends on him as well. Divock Origi stays, obviously, which is good news; Bobby Firmino is still there; Rhian Brewster is a top striker, a top talent, and I am really happy.

“I told him already, he has an important role this year – but how important? Again, it depends on him and we will see.

“He has to play different positions as well because the centre is OK, wing I think is possible, and then we will see how we can line up. There will be opportunities for him, I am really sure.”

Promising talent

Brewster is a very talented and promising young striker who can only get better in the coming years.

It is going to be hard for the English teenager to play regularly for the Liverpool first team, but working under Klopp on a regular basis on the training field will help him develop and progress.

Daniel Sturridge’s replacement

With Daniel Sturridge having left Liverpool this summer, Brewster could take the place of the England international striker in the squad.

The 19-year-old is still developing and progressing as a footballer, and he will be a good option to have on the substitutes’ bench.

Liverpool will be aiming to win the Premier League and the Champions League next season, and the Reds need a big squad.
