Rhian Brewster: What a difference a year makes - and I'm loving it

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 22:20

Rhian Brewster felt there was a poignancy about his two-goal haul in Liverpool’s 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in their opening pre-season friendly of the campaign on Thursday night.

For the fourth campaign in a row, Rovers provided Jürgen Klopp’s men with their first test of the summer at Prenton Park.

When the teams met last year, Brewster was a spectator from the stands, watching the Reds edge the contest 3-2 as he continued his lengthy rehabilitation from injury.

Exactly 364 days on, Brewster was named in the starting line-up across the River Mersey – and marked the appearance with his first senior goals for Liverpool by notching twice in quick succession before half-time.

LFCTV GO: Rhian Brewster reacts after Tranmere double

“This time last year I was out injured, I was here watching the boys play against Tranmere and this year I'm here playing,” he reflected to Liverpoolfc.com following the final whistle.

“It's mad how far you can come in a year. I'm loving every minute of pre-season. It's tough, don't get me wrong, but I'd rather be out there than on the treatment bench.

“I'm taking every moment as it comes. It's great to be back out there.”

Good feeling to be back on the pitch tonight, thanks to all who came down and supported! Great to get 2 goals as we… https://t.co/hCh5lBBMqF

— RhianBrewster9 (Rhian Brewster) 11th Jul 20:40

Brewster’s brace added to Nathaniel Clyne’s opener and put Liverpool into a commanding three-goal lead at half-time.

Following the interval, Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Bobby Duncan all netted to give the scoreline an emphatic look at Prenton Park.

“It was good to start the pre-season right,” Brewster continued. “I think the team played really well in both halves.

“Obviously it's good to get two goals and an assist, but overall I think the first-half team and second-half team played really well.”

Jürgen Klopp on Tranmere victory, transfers and Rhian Brewster potential

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 22:18

Jürgen Klopp discussed the positives of Liverpool's 6-0 win at Tranmere Rovers, the future for Rhian Brewster and the possibility of further transfers this summer after Thursday's friendly at Prenton Park.

The Reds began their seven-game schedule ahead of 2019-20 with a comfortable victory courtesy of goals from Nathaniel Clyne, Brewster (two), Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Bobby Duncan.

Klopp was pleased with the manner of the performance as he selected two entirely different XIs in either half and explained why during his post-match media duties.

The boss also fielded questions on Brewster’s prospects for the season ahead, the transfer window and more – read a summary of his replies below…

On a satisfactory night’s work…

All round it was a brilliant performance of the boys, in both halves we played really good football against a good, physically strong side. The boys let the ball do the work pretty much, the ball was constantly busy rolling so the game was fluent. I liked it a lot; all the individual performances were good, tactical-wise altogether good, pressing good, counter-pressing. I saw all the things. [We were] only one week together and the kids came up to do so. I liked the game.

On whether Liverpool will bring in players that are ‘going to impact the first-team squad right away’ this summer…

We brought them in already, only you don’t realise it. Rhian Brewster; Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t play last year; all the young boys today. They are all new players for us, that’s all good. The transfer market is open until August 8. The whole of Europe had the idea to close the transfer window early and the only country that did it was then England, so we close it now three weeks before all the others. We will see what we do but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.

On whether being European champions has made a difference to the players…

They should be happy about that and should get confidence from that but it’s not that we are running around like Champions League winners 24 hours a day. We won it five weeks ago and I had a wonderful summer, the best summer I ever had because people didn’t say when they wanted a picture with me, ‘I’m so sorry for you’, which they usually did in the last five years. It was much better and for the players it was the same. But now we are here. Yes, we made the next step. It looked tonight like they were all really confident, I liked the game a lot. Maybe it has a little bit to do with winning the Champions League but during the season we have to go for winning something new and cannot always look back.

On whether Liverpool’s form last season gives them added motivation for this term…

[It’s] nothing to do with that. We want to play the best season we can play, like we wanted to do last year, but we have no idea what that means for what happens to all the other teams – Man United, Chelsea, Tottenham – so it will be a new season and we have to be ready for that. For us, I am really happy about the game tonight but it is a difficult pre-season for us. Sadio Mane is in the semi-finals [of the Africa Cup of Nations], so that means he has two more games for sure and will come [back] late. The Brazilians have finally finished their 30-month season, exactly like Mo, and they will come but we will not have a pre-season together, we will only have a week before we start with the games. Tonight it looked like we can find some solutions. Last season is a good sign for us, it showed us what we can achieve, but we have to be as good as last year and, in the best case, be better. We will see what the outcome will be.

On whether Sepp van den Berg will be part of the first-team set-up this season…

It depends. I open the door but the boys have to go through still. He is a wonderful player as well, but because of FIFA rules he is not available in the moment, but we have other good players. He thought his future should be here and I thought the same, so now he is here and now let’s work together. He is 17 years old and when you see him you forget that constantly, but he is 17 and so there is a lot to learn. The good thing is he has the most time to do so, so everything will be fine.

On whether he wants to ‘play down’ Brewster’s performance…

Why should I play down? I only don’t want to talk after a game like that [about] the guy who scored two goals, like it always is in football, ‘Oh, he is so good, he scored two!’ I saw a really good game and Rhian is a fantastic player, that is the only thing I want to talk about. We can talk about Rhian, no problem, I don’t want to play him down or it down.

Watch: Brewster strikes with smart header

Watch: Rhian on the rebound for his second

On whether it’s a ‘big season’ for Brewster…

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.

Gallery: Reds hit six at Tranmere in pre-season opener

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 21:32

Rhian Brewster scored a first-half brace as Liverpool kicked off their 2019-20 pre-season campaign with a comfortable 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Thursday night.

The 19-year-old forward netted with a well-placed header and a poacher's finish as he grabbed two in quick succession to make it 3-0 just before the break.

Returning right-back Nathaniel Clyne, who spent the second half of season on loan at Bournemouth, had opened the scoring for the Reds with a drilled finish into the top corner after just five minutes.

Curtis Jones made it 4-0 early in the second half when he tapped in at the back post and captain Divock Origi scored on his first outing since signing a new long-term contract to make it 5-0 on the hour.

Bobby Duncan converted from close-range to complete the scoring on a night when 23 different Liverpool players were given a run out.

Match report: Liverpool score six in pre-season opener at Tranmere

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 21:20

Liverpool eased to a 6-0 win at Tranmere Rovers in their opening pre-season fixture of the summer on Thursday night.

Nathaniel Clyne, Rhian Brewster (two), Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Bobby Duncan were the goalscorers as Jürgen Klopp’s side kicked off their seven-game build-up to the campaign in emphatic fashion.

The manager gave minutes to 23 players at Prenton Park in front of a sell-out crowd for the meeting with the League One team.

An energetic beginning to the contest was punctuated by Liverpool’s first goal of 2019-20 with just six minutes on the clock.

Its genesis was a surging run from his own half by Joe Gomez, whose eventual pass into Brewster was swiftly turned out to the right channel for Clyne to dispatch an excellent rising finish high into the Tranmere net.

Watch: Clyne slams in opening goal

Gomez soon had to make amends for a misjudgement in possession in his own half, the No.12 recovering to block a firm shot after Paul Mullin had broken into the box and stepped into a prime central position to score.

The lively Yasser Larouci, so often an out ball at left-back, was unlucky to see a 10th-minute drive deflected over after a sweet one-two with Adam Lallana.

The 18-year-old later saw another decent effort, this one angled across goal from the left side, stopped and at the other end Simon Mignolet carefully kept out a bouncing strike from Corey Blackett-Taylor.

Liverpool continued to move the ball quickly and intelligently – and their pressure told with a Brewster double before the break.

First, James Milner’s dangerous cross from the left reached Harry Wilson at the opposite post and the Welshman knocked it back into the middle, where Brewster nodded home.

And the No.24 further increased the Reds’ advantage with the last real action of the first half. Milner’s effort on the turn at the edge of the area was palmed out into Brewster’s path for a straightforward tap-in and 3-0.

Watch: Brewster heads in Liverpool second

Watch: Brewster on the rebound for Reds' third

As planned, Klopp changed his entire XI at half-time, with Duncan, Paul Glatzel, George Johnston and Adam Lewis among the youngsters handed a chance to impress.

It was another of the club’s emerging Academy prospects that bagged Liverpool’s fourth goal of the evening.

Origi held the ball up strongly in the right channel and fed it back to Ben Woodburn, who curled a cross to the far post for Jones to successfully place a finish past the goalkeeper on the stretch.

Then, a day after signing a new long-term Reds contract, Champions League hero Origi got back in the goals with an unerring touch, dribble around the goalkeeper and slot home on the hour.

Watch: Jones stretches to score fourth

Watch: Fine touch and finish from Origi

Duncan wrapped up the night’s scoring with a neat tuck into the net after Ki-Jana Hoever sliced through the Tranmere defence and Glatzel moved the ball on to his U18s strike partner of last term.

Glatzel was frustratingly forced off with an injury a quarter an hour from time, prompting the introduction of Academy goalkeeper Daniel Atherton in a forward role – the only negative of an encouraging outing for Klopp’s men.

Team news: Origi and Mignolet set to face Tranmere

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 15:58

Divock Origi and Simon Mignolet are set to feature in Liverpool's pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers this evening.

The Belgium duo returned to Melwood this week to begin preparations for 2019-20 and will be part of the matchday squad for tonight’s fixture at Prenton Park.

Origi arrived at the club’s training ground at the start of the week before putting pen to paper on a new long-term contract on Wednesday.

Mignolet, meanwhile, reconvened at Melwood this morning after the summer break, but will be involved against Tranmere.

The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana, Joel Matip and Fabinho are also set to figure in a game you can watch live on LFCTV and LFCTV GO.

Dejan Lovren won’t be considered having only returned to pre-season training on Tuesday and the game coming too soon for an outfield player; however, the defender will come into contention for Sunday’s fixture at Bradford City.

Elsewhere, Sepp van den Berg is ineligible to play as he awaits FIFA clearance.

Liverpool interested in Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 12:52

Liverpool are interested in re-signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona, reports say.

Liverpool offloaded Coutinho to Barcelona back in January 2018, with the Brazil international moving to the Nou Camp in a £142million transfer.

At the time, many expected the Samba star to be a huge hit given how well he performed in the Premier League.

But Coutinho has suffered since his Liverpool exit, struggling for form at Barcelona while his former club have gone on to win the Champions League trophy.

Given the playmaker’s struggles, talk of a move away from Catalonia this summer has been rife.

And Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo say that Liverpool are interested in re-signing the player.

Coutinho’s preference is said to be a return to England this summer despite PSG aiming to land him as part of any Neymar swap deal.

He has ruled out Manchester United because they are not competing in the Champions League.

And a move to Chelsea has also been discarded because of the Blues’ transfer ban.

The report says, though, that Liverpool will not break the bank to bring Coutinho back to Merseyside.

They are reluctant to fork out a similar amount than what they sold the player for nearly 18 months ago.

And how Coutinho’s future plays out remains to be seen.

Should Barcelona land Neymar and Antoine Griezmann there appears little chance of him getting game time.

Divock Origi: How history was written by Liverpool's No.27

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 18:15

Jürgen Klopp described Divock Origi's remarkable 96th-minute winner over Everton in December 2018 as a "really nice story". Little did he know it would develop into a fairy tale.

It was only in September of last year that Origi was appearing for Neil Critchley's U23s to gain some much-needed match action. Eight months later, the striker was a Champions League-winning hero.

His resurgence is a heartening tale of what can happen to those who remain patient, work hard and maintain belief.

There should be more to come, too, after the No.27 penned a new long-term contract with the club on Wednesday. 

"I just try to shine my light," the striker regularly insists during interviews. By the end of last season, his contribution was blinding.  

Origi's 2018-19 campaign was bookended with the true low and ultimate high of Liverpool's historic journey.

[embedded content]

It was during the Champions League group-stage defeat at Red Star Belgrade back in November that the striker made his first appearance of the campaign. With the Reds 2-0 down, he replaced Adam Lallana as 11 minutes remained.

Origi's application in training and versatility were the reasons for his resurgence, according to his manager.

"All credit to Div, he has done really well and it's absolutely deserved," Klopp explained in April. "Not one second that he's been given has been a present this season."

The 24-year-old gifted Liverpool supporters decisive interventions, leading to wild celebrations. Four of his seven goals were of a seismic magnitude.

It all began with that injury-time header against Everton. Origi was in the right place at the right time after Jordan Pickford pushed Virgil van Dijk's skied effort back into play.

The opposition of the December 2 encounter was of special significance. Three seasons prior, Origi's blistering first campaign as a Red was halted due to an injury sustained during a Merseyside derby.

"It was always in my mind when I thought about Div, that night," Klopp said post-match. "Coming on tonight, now he can finish that book and from now on everything will be fine again."

But there were still more chapters to be written.

Another late headed goal from Origi – this time away at Newcastle United in May – kept Liverpool's Premier League title hopes alive.

Mohamed Salah suffered a concussion in that game and Origi would be required to lead line for the Champions League semi-final, second leg against Barcelona three days later, with Roberto Firmino already ruled out.

He cemented his place in club folklore forever that night.

After kick-starting perhaps Liverpool's greatest ever European occasion at Anfield, Origi was alert enough to turn in Trent Alexander-Arnold's quick-thinking corner and put the Reds 4-0 up, overturning the three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Alexander-Arnold's wisdom beyond his years took most of the limelight, but the right-back was quick to deflect some praise onto Origi's controlled finish.

Just like his restoration into Klopp's plans, practice on the training pitch proved vital.

"I think subconsciously, when the ball came, it helped me – I had more confidence because I knew I'd practised that shot," Origi analysed.  

He performed similar heroics in the final. Replacing Firmino early in the second half, Origi scored Liverpool's second late on to seal the club's sixth triumph in the competition. Replays of which will be played in minds and on screens for decades to come.

[embedded content]

A statistic circulated in the aftermath of the final, laying bare Origi's devastating impact on the Reds' journey to glory. Three shots in the Champions League, three goals – a 100 per cent conversion rate.

Already regarded as a Liverpool legend in some quarters, Origi is now determined to add to further prestige to his status.

"My aim is to keep progressing and trying to maximise the potential and talent I have each and every day," he said, moments after inking his new deal.

"At the end of my career I want to sit back and be proud that I used all of my gifts and talents.

"I think the next years are going to be very special – prime years, maybe – and I'm going to try to use them to the fullest."

Jürgen Klopp: Divock Origi's new contract is a 'win-win situation'

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 17:58

Jürgen Klopp has explained why Divock Origi signing a new long-term contract with Liverpool represents a ‘win-win situation’ for both player and club.

Origi put pen to paper on fresh terms at Melwood on Wednesday, committing his future to the Reds five years on from his arrival as a teenager from Lille.

Two of the Belgium international’s quintet of seasons at Anfield have been spent away on loan, but Liverpool’s Champions League-winning 2018-19 campaign was, of course, littered with invaluable contributions from their No.27.

And Klopp is delighted that he will be able to continue calling on Origi in the years to come.

“I really think it’s a win-win situation. It’s a story really only football can write,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I never forgot the situation in the Everton game [in 2016], to be honest, when there was that harsh tackle and a red card for Funes Mori. Divock was in the best shape of his life and everybody was so positive about his future, and then things like this happen in football.

“We always know something like this can happen but when you see it and see the influence it has on a career, it’s just a sad story because he struggled really long with the ankle and stuff like that [and when] he came back the team was flying pretty much.

“It was not easy to come in and he couldn’t gain confidence and stuff like that. Going on loan to Wolfsburg, it didn’t really work out there, coming back, thinking about leaving and then the season starts and yeah, it’s not a miracle, but it’s the nice part of the story then.

LFCTV GO: Interview | Divock Origi signs new deal

“He grew and grew and grew, in training sessions you could see it: ‘Wow!’ It was then not sure about the centre so he played a couple of games on the left wing. He did well there, it’s obviously not his natural position but he can play it in a specific way, in a very offensive way.

“Then in training again, you saw ‘OK, now he is ready again for No.9’ and he did that and scored the goals. That helped obviously, he scored unbelievably important goals and here we are.

“We wanted to sign him again, to extend the contract, and the nice thing is he wanted to as well. He realised it was a tough time [but] we never gave him up in that time, [we never said] ‘OK, that will never work again’, but sometimes in football you don’t have enough time.

“Thankfully we had enough time that we could kind of wait until he is ready again. Now he is this wonderful player again so it’s great to have him and I’m really, really happy about the signing.”

Origi’s talismanic influence last term included a stoppage-time winner against Everton and vital goals that helped see off Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur in the last four and final of the Champions League.

Those strikes, Klopp is certain, mean the 24-year-old’s place in Liverpool’s history is assured.

“Oh yeah, absolutely,” the manager continued.

“Not only the Everton goal, which was already historical, then all the rest he did against Barcelona and especially in the final is of course very, very special, and Newcastle as well, so he was so decisive.

“But it wasn’t [just] the goals, even the way he played then was so much better again, you could see it immediately. I remember when we played Dortmund away [in 2016] and he scored that goal, after that all Dortmund [fans] were behind me going ‘Divock Origi, wow, what a striker!’ and stuff like this.

“And then in football, you have a bad period, maybe half a year or a year or whatever, and nobody remembers you anymore. It’s crazy but it is like this. People in the last year maybe thought he lost it completely, so in this moment it’s very good that you have a long-term contract in a good club with sensational mates and players around you who really like you. That helped him a lot.

“I’m pretty sure he always felt that he is really important in that team and all that stuff, so it’s brilliant. It’s just a nice story and probably nobody could have imagined it a year ago, and here we are.

“I think age-wise it’s an important contract for him and for us, it’s an important role which he will have in the next season.”

McAteer visits Geneva ahead of Liverpool's pre-season friendly with Lyon

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 15:00

Jason McAteer visited Geneva ahead of Liverpool's pre-season friendly against Olympique Lyonnais in the Swiss city later this month.

Geneva, also known as the city of peace, will host the Reds' clash with the Ligue One outfit at the Stade de Geneve on Wednesday July 31.

While visiting the city, the former Reds star stopped at key landmarks, including Geneva’s giant Ferris wheel, the iconic l’Horloge Fleurie and the Pont Mont Blanc.

The world-famous Horloge Fleurie is a large flower clock located on the western side of Jardin Anglais - an urban garden on the bank of Lake Geneva. 

The clock was created in 1955 as a symbol of the city's watchmakers, and a dedication to nature. Its second hand is the longest in the world, at 2.5 metres (8.2 ft) and the floral masterpiece is made up of more than 6,500 flowers, which are replanted each season to indicate the passing of time.

For the next stop on the tour, McAteer took a ride on Geneva’s iconic Ferris wheel, taking in stunning views across Lake Geneva.

The giant wheel is a renowned attraction and forms part of Geneva’s summertime festival Les Fêtes de Genève - a 10-day event held annually in the city. 

Along the way, McAteer posed for pictures and signed autographs for local fans before rounding off his trip by crossing the famous Pont Mont Blanc bridge and taking a boat ride across Lake Geneva.

“Geneva is a beautiful city - I’ve enjoyed learning about its history and visiting some of its famous landmarks. It’s a great backdrop for the team’s pre-season friendly against Lyon at the end of the month,” he said.

“Lyon are a tough opposition and the game promises to be the ultimate finale to what will have been a spectacular summer for the squad and club. It’s also a great opportunity for local Reds fans to come together and support the team ahead of the forthcoming 2019-20 campaign.”

Cain nets a double as U18s win Burton friendly

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 14:55

Jake Cain netted two brilliant free-kicks as Liverpool U18s beat Burton Albion 4-0 in a pre-season friendly at the Academy on Wednesday afternoon.

Barry Lewtas' side played some delightful football at times as they enjoyed their first minutes following the summer break.

U16 player Cannonier Oakley netted the opening goal before Cain made it 2-0 with a superb curled free-kick.

Niall Brookwell then put the finishing touches on a brilliant team move to add the third goal.

The lively No.9 Layton Stewart was unfortunate not to net a second-half hat-trick.

He fired one effort inches wide after a sweet turn on the edge of the box, was denied by a brilliant save at point-blank range and then sent a diving header just past the post.

Cain added the fourth following a brilliant low drilled free-kick.

Reflecting on the outing, Lewtas told Liverpoolfc.com: "It was good to give the boys their first minutes of pre-season and it was a pleasing performance.

"Jake scored two great free-kicks and he and Leighton Clarkson are capable of doing that for us.

"We had a lot of first-year scholars and it was good to give them a first experience at U18 level."
