Liverpool whiz Bobby Adekanye: Klopp backs youth players willing to work

Bobby Adekanye is determined to put down roots at Liverpool.

The 18 year-old attacker, after time with PSV, Barcelona and Ajax, is in his second season with Liverpool U18.

"Hopefully, my dream comes true, and that's the first team in Liverpool," said Adekanye to Voetbal International.

On working with manager Jürgen Klopp, Adekanye said: "He said some good things to me: Klopp said I should not be too nervous and just show myself.

"He said that I had to enjoy it and that's right because, if I enjoy it, I get the best out of my game. Klopp is a good trainer and gives the youth players who want to work for him the chance. I am willing to work hard and we will see where the ship goes."
