Neco Williams denies career stalling with Liverpool: I'm improving training with Mane, Salah

Neco Williams has dismissed claims he needs to leave Liverpool in order to improve.

The 20-year-old fullback, who signed a five-year extension in 2020, has been starved for playing time at Anfield this season.

But Williams says coming up against the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on a daily basis is helping him improve as a player.

"For me when I signed my contract, the main thing was I needed to improve as a player," Williams said.

"And when I'm coming up against Mo Salah and Sadio Mane every day in training, it's going to make me a better player.

"I feel like I've matured in my game, especially when you've got Salah and Mane running at you every day. It is hard, but it's going to make me a better player and I feel like it definitely has helped me.

"I'm learning off them and it gives me a little battle with them, so I'm enjoying it."
