Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that U18 duo Bobby Duncan, cousin of Steven Gerrard, and Paul Glatzel will be part of the Liverpool squad during the tour of the United States of America.
According to a report in the Liverpool Echo, Klopp said that “a lot of them will be part of the US tour, we have to use that because of the number of games we play. We need all of them and that’s nice. Only as an example, Bobby Duncan and Paul Glatzel: our offensive line that played last year is coming pretty late in joining us in the pre-season, so we have to be creative system-wise and all that stuff, but there will be moments when they have to play. Not only at Tranmere or whatever, but in America as well when we play Borussia Dortmund and all the other guys. So, it’s good and it’s always like this: when you are already in the club, then the door is always open for you to the first team.”
This is only good news for the youngsters at LFC. These two in particular are rated very highly and, with the likes of Mane, Salah and Firmino not due back for a while, this could be a huge opportunity for them to stake their place in the Liverpool squad for the upcoming season. Include the likes of Harry Wilson, Ben Woodburn and Ryan Kent to this and the upcoming games should certainly be interesting…
