Paul Glatzel delighted penning new Liverpool deal

Paul Glatzel has signed a new deal with Liverpool.

The 18-year-old striker, who scored 28 goals for the Reds U18s side during the 2018/19 season, sustained a serious knee injury while playing for the first-team against Tranmere Rovers on July 11 in pre-season.

Highly-rated Glatzel signed the a deal today at the club's training ground.

"It's a great feeling obviously," he told the club's official website.

"I was disappointed to get my injury at the start of the season, but it's a great feeling and it shows that the club has got faith in me. Now I can just focus on my rehab and get back on the pitch.

"I've been at the club for so long and I just want to keep going and see where it takes me. Hopefully I can crack on now and keep going. The contract makes it easier.

"Mentally, it's good to be able to focus on the rehab and know that there's people that have faith in me and they know I'll come back from my injury stronger and I'll be ready when I'm back on the pitch.

"I'll be back playing in eight months or something but the physios are just trying to take it week by week, so I don't have to look too far in the future because it's quite far away still.

"I'm just looking at it week by week and just seeing the little progressions that I'm making."
