Liverpool youngster Camacho slams Klopp: Can't you see I'm an attacker?

Rafael Camacho has taken a dig at Jurgen Klopp and coaching staff after he scored a hat-trick in Liverpool U23s win over Leicester City on Sunday.

Camacho was deployed on the right side of attack, in a team that also featured Joe Gomez, Ben Woodburn and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Klopp has used the 18-year-old at right-back in his two first team appearances this season, but Camacho is out to prove his gaffer wrong.

"I do not know whose idea it is, but I will prove that they are mistaken about my football," Camacho's Instagram post read.

"I'm not a right defender, I'm an attacker who scores goals. This is my DNA.

"Happy to score three goals and help the team in today's win vs Leicester."
