Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster is hoping that a few opportunities come his way this season following reassurances from Jurgen Klopp.
The England U21 international has been on the fringes of the Liverpool first-team squad for a number of months now, winning himself a Champions League winners medal for his role as an unused substitute in June’s showpiece finale in Madrid, though has yet to actually make his senior debut for the club.
That could all be about to change on Wednesday evening though, with the U17 World Cup winner being tipped to feature in Liverpool’s Carabao Cup opener against MK Dons having scored four goals for the Reds in pre-season.

Speaking at a launch event for FIFA 20, Brewster revealed that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will get his chance to impress in the first team this season, though having recovered from a number of serious injuries, the 19-year-old is happy to get game time at any level.
“Klopp spoke to me and told me, ‘You’re going to get your chance this year’ and I’m just waiting for that chance now so that I can prove him right,” Brewster told the Mirror.
“He’s not one of those managers you don’t want to speak to, he’s a great manager and he’s so down to earth.
“At the moment it’s just about getting game time. Playing for the Under-23s is good because obviously I was out for so long, so he’s trying to put me into it [the first team] slowly and not just throw me in there.”
