Liverpool coach McMahon tells kids to be ready for Rafa call

Liverpool reserves coach John McMahon can see more of his youngsters breaking into the first team.

Martin Kelly and Nathan Eccleston have both featured in recent weeks.

And with a large number of injuries affecting his squad, Rafa Benitez may yet call upon more novices in the coming weeks.

"The young lads can see that there is a chance of development for them," McMahon told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"The youngsters are doing okay, they're progressing quite nicely. They've got in through injuries, but it's up to them to take chances - that's what it's about.

"Sometimes a player gets one chance and takes it, sometimes they get five or six and don't. It's up to them to grasp it with both hands if they get a chance."
