Jurgen Klopp Names the ‘Very Talented’ Liverpool Youngster Who Has Been Performing Well in Training

Jurgen Klopp has hinted that Jarell Quansah will maintain his starting position for Liverpool in the upcoming game, indicating faith in the young centre-back.

Quansah has been making significant strides in his career this season at Anfield, marking the culmination of a promising breakthrough journey.

Following a loan spell at League One outfit Bristol Rovers last season, Quansah has seamlessly transitioned into a key player in the Premier League.

With 31 appearances across various competitions, including 15 in the Premier League, the 21-year-old has demonstrated his capability on the field.

Notably, he has been preferred over established internationals Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez in the starting lineup for the past two league fixtures, including a notable victory against Tottenham Hotspur.

Klopp, addressing the media ahead of the impending clash with Aston Villa, highlighted Quansah’s consistent performance in training. This commendable display has earned him the opportunity to partner with defensive stalwart Virgil van Dijk in Liverpool’s backline.

“It’s just like that we play once a week and we just look at who looks in the best moment, and Jarell is one of them.

“That’s how it is and we don’t play with three centre-halves or whatever, so it means we have to make a decision and Jarell is training really well and we have a lot of training sessions, he is training really well.

“That doesn’t mean Ibou [Konate] or Joey [Gomez] wouldn’t train well, but Jarell trained really well and that’s how it is and that’s why I make these kind of decisions. That’s the best situation to have, I can just sit there and look at it…

If you have the chance to make that decision, that you can really decide on this high level who is a little bit better and in a little better moment, then you do it.

“That’s what you do. There is no rotation necessary because then the others have to play anyway, or you have to mix it up anyway, but that’s not necessary now.

“That’s why he played [and] yes, he pushed himself in a really, really good situation, that’s true. And I think the [Tottenham] game justified that decision. He was really good in that game as well… and again, a very, very talented player. Really, really good.”
