Liverpool hero Fairclough backing Coady for first team breakthrough

Liverpool hero David Fairclough believes Conor Coady will be pushing for a first team breakthrough next season.

Coady is among several academy youngsters tipped for big things at Anfield.

Fairclough told liverpoolfc.tv: "He had a good year with the U18s and the reserves, and the experience he picked up will stand him in good stead.

"Without being unfair to Conor, I don't think he is outstanding at any one particular thing, but he's a good all rounded footballer with a tremendous attitude and sense of leadership, which is why he is the captain of our youth team and also England's.

"He has earned that respect from his colleagues and the experience of going through highs and lows as skipper could well play a part in seeing him force his way into Kenny's thoughts."
