Liverpool boss Dalglish promotes Suso, Coady to first team

Liverpool academy chief Frank McParland has revealed Suso and Conor Coady have been promoted to the first team this week.

In his column for liverpoolfc.tv, McParland wrote: "Everything has been hugely positive and it is great that the Academy is so heavily involved in Kenny (Dalglish)'s plans..

"After that meeting he decided to take Conor Coady and Suso up to Melwood with him to train with the first-team..

"He took me and the two boys down to Melwood in his car which was obviously a great moment for them. I watched them train with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Joe Cole and Fabio Aurelio - all the players who weren't involved against Everton..

"They both did very well and were a credit to the Academy. I have to say that just watching Gerrard in training was special. Conor and Suso came off the pitch and said that for a 20 minute spell the skipper was unplayable. I was watching and I had to agree with them!.

"The two lads will now spend the rest of the week there and it is very possible they will go to the game with Wolves and stay at the hotel."
