'A real prospect': Klopp urges Liverpool fans to watch out for 19-year-old
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told Reds fans to watch out for “real prospect” Owen Beck coming through the ranks.
Klopp has two great left-backs at his disposal at Anfield – Andrew Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas.
Indeed, Liverpool fans have been debating over the last few weeks over whether Robertson or Tsimikas should be first-choice.
Ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League meeting with Southampton, Klopp spoke about the Robertson-Tsimikas situation, and also commented on Beck.
“Now we have different solutions, it’s good,” the Reds boss told the Liverpool Echo.
“We have Kostas as well and we have Owen Beck coming up, a real prospect, so that’s good for us.”
Beck has come through the ranks at Liverpool after joining from Stoke at Under-13 level.
The 19-year-old – described by the Liverpool website as a “forward-thinking left-back” – penned a new long-term contract at Anfield in July.
Beck, the great-nephew of Liverpool legend Ian Rush, made his Reds competitive senior debut in October’s Carabao Cup win over Preston.
He also broke into the Wales U21 setup this year, making his debut in September.
