19-year-old Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster is in line to make his Liverpool debut in tonight’s massive Champions League semi final second leg against Barcelona
The absence of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino has paved the way for Brewster to make his long-awaited debut for the first team after he has finally recovered from his ongoing injury setbacks.
Speaking about Brewster, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said, “He’s ready. Yes, there is a big chance. It’s nearly sure. It’s guaranteed.”
“The situations are always like this. In an ideal world, in a season you always have much more players than you can involve in a squad. When you’re on the bench, you are an option to play.”
The 19-year-old only recently recovered from an ankle injury he suffered in January 2018, but Klopp was also eager to share how happy he was with the youngsters fitness: “Rhian has been in just outstanding shape for the last three or four weeks, but the other players were there as well. It’s just good so now it’s really nice in a difficult situation that we can give him that spot in the squad and have him there to bring on as a striker.”
