Liverpool has new youngest 1st team scorer in Ben Woodburn. The 17 year old found the back of the net after a great move from Liverpool seen below:
Klopp On Woodburn’s contribution…
“We know what Ben is capable of and what he is already able to do. My first job is to help these boys so that they can be the best. In this case, Ben Woodburn. There’s a lot of things to do, especially to keep the public away as long as possible. That’s quite a difficult thing to do. But on the other hand, we only bring him in because we want to use him. So that means when he’s on the pitch he’s absolutely allowed to score goals, to prepare situations, to make crosses – how Trent did, for example. So, all good. I’m really happy for him. The only problem is I’m a little bit afraid about you [the media]. That’s why I’m so quiet on this. Think and do what you want, but don’t write anything – only ‘Goalscorer, Ben Woodburn.’ Done. Quite a challenge!”
Woodburn wasn’t the only youthful presence on the pitch. Right back, Trent Alexander-Arnold was born in 1998 and served up a peach of a cross for Origi’s opener. It is great to see the youth getting involved in Liverpool’s successes!
