Brannagan intent on tasting more senior action with Liverpool

Cameron Brannagan says he is 'here to be called upon' by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The 20-year-old midfielder played nine times for the Reds last season and after getting a taste of senior action, is intent on experiencing more.

However, Brannagan is well aware he has to bide his time and wait for an opportunity which he plans to take with both hands once it is placed in front of him by Klopp.

"I've just got to keep working hard," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"If the manager needs me, I'm here to be called upon. The U23s games are coming up and I've just got to keep playing well in those and trying to show what I can do.

"My priority at the minute is to keep working hard and when I get the chance to play, keep playing well. Playing last season just gives you the incentive that you want to play more.

"It's not always the case being a young lad coming up, you know that you're not going to be able to play 20 games a year – it's not normal.

"When I'm at Melwood, I've just got to keep trying to impress the manager as much as I can. Even when I'm training at the Academy, I've got to try to impress the manager and the U23s training staff. We will see where that takes me."
