Liverpool trials for South Korean teenage pair

Liverpool have handed trials to two exciting South Korean prospects.

Kim Yoon-Soo, 16, and Park Hyeon-Jim, 18, arrived in the city on Saturday ahead of a week-long trial at the club's Academy.

A meet and greet with first-team stars Dirk Kuyt and Andy Carroll was first on the agenda prior to a Monday morning training session with the reserves.

"I always tell lads who come on trial to enjoy themselves and to smile," Reds academy boss Frank McParland told liverpoolfc.tv.

"They are playing football and they are at Liverpool - what more do they want? It's a great opportunity so they should relax and express themselves.

"They trained with the reserves today and will be with the U18s for the rest of the week. We'll have a really good look at them and see what they can do.

"This club is a massive club - but it's a friendly one too. The kids are always really good with the trialists and we work hard on that side of things. If you are going to bring someone all the way from places like Korea, then you want to see the best of them.

"For that to happen they need to feel comfortable and I got the impression they felt content when I spoke to them earlier."
