Virtue left the club for Blackpool in January 2019 but will not forget his experiences training with the Reds first-team.
"I got the chance to train with the first team and some of the best players in the world, which is unbelievable really," he told the club's website. "People always ask me about who were the best players I got to train with and I always say Roberto Firmino and Gini Wijnaldum.
"Firmino has got eyes in the back of his head, his first touch is unbelievable and I think Wijnaldum is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League. He is so good at what he does. On the ball he never gives it away, his first touch is always right for where he wants to take the ball.
"I'm a Liverpool fan and I will always look out for the results and watch the games when I can. When I was at the Academy I got tickets for every home game and tried to go as much as I could. I loved every minute of it."
