This may not be the news many of you were expecting. We all would love to hear that Liverpool have signed a player such as Hazard or we are bringing in Mario Gomez upfront. But that does not look like it will be happening any time soon. Instead we are continuing to bring in more young players.
According to Sky Sports, Liverpool have offered trials to three of Ghana’s young brightest prospects. Bright Gyenfi, James Akaminko and Nurudeen Amed are all due on Merseyside next month and will be assessed to see if they make the grade for the club.
Gyenfi, 16, is a right-back, whilst 18-year-olds Amed and Akaminko are midfielders.
There is nothing wrong at all in my opinion by giving these youngsters a chance. They may turn out to be stars such as Michael Essien or better. My worry is that we have bought in all these ‘potential stars’ over the years but have not seen them go on to be first team stars! Is that not the ultimate aim in getting them in?
Only now are we seeing Raheem Sterling getting a chance but how many more chances will he get before he gets fed up and decides to go join another team? We have so many bright talents at the Academy and in the reserves but they are not making that step up to the first team. We have to ask ourselves the question why it is like this? There clearly is a problem someone that needs to be addressed.
