Liverpool Could Lose One of Their Wonderkids to Premier League Rivals After Latest Revelation

Liverpool will be eager to retain one of their valuable assets this summer.

There’s a possibility that Liverpool might lose promising talent Bobby Clark to Newcastle in the future, as his father Lee has expressed his desire to see his son play for the Magpies. Lee Clark, a respected figure in Newcastle, wishes for his son to follow in his footsteps.

Lee Clark, who played 265 matches for the esteemed Newcastle team in the 1990s, is among several former professionals whose children have made an impact at Anfield this season.

Teenage midfielder Bobby Clark made his debut last season and has since appeared 13 times for Liverpool’s senior squad. Highly regarded by Jurgen Klopp, the academy product scored his maiden professional goal in Liverpool’s 6-1 victory over Sparta Prague in the Europa League.

Even with Klopp set to depart at the end of the season, Liverpool have high hopes on Clark’s future. The next manager will inherit a team brimming with potential, with the 19-year-old midfielder standing out as one of the most promising prospects.

However, the Merseysiders will need to deter any interest from Newcastle as dad Lee has opened up on his ‘ultimate dream’ to see his son play for the Magpies. Clark has backed Bobby to ‘do an Alan Shearer’ by joining his boyhood club later in his career.

“My ultimate wish would absolutely be to see Bobby playing for Newcastle,” Clark told No Tippy Tappy Football. “I don’t know how many father and son combinations have both appeared for the club.

“I was lucky enough to play for them 265 times and, who knows, he might have to do an Alan Shearer and come back! That would be my dream.”

Lee further shared about the January call from Bobby, where he learned of Klopp’s departure. This news hit the youngster hard, as he credits the German coach for propelling him into Liverpool’s first team.

“On the Wednesday evening after beating Fulham, Bobby and the lads were feeling sky high because they had helped the team reach the Carabao Cup final,” Clark continued.

“But the next morning, Jurgen called a team meeting to announce that he was leaving. That is a great example of the ups and downs of football.

“Bobby texted me and said, ‘Dad, I need to speak to you’ – I thought something bad had happened to him personally. He told me that Jurgen was leaving and I was gutted, so just imagine how the players felt.

“Now it seems to have galvanised the group even more. They want to make it a memorable season for the boss when he leaves.”
