Klopp calls up 'incredible' 18-year-old to Liverpool training pre-Wolves, he's a 'joy to watch'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been putting his Reds players through their paces ahead of their date with destiny.

The Reds are still in with a chance of winning the Premier League title with just one game to go.

Four months ago, it looked as though Liverpool were well out of the title race.

England's 7 Best Youth Players In 2017: Where Are They Now?

In mid-January, the Anfield outfit sat 14 points adrift of table-topping Manchester City.

Now, Liverpool could lift the title for the second time in three seasons if things go their way on Sunday.

The Reds face Wolves, a team that has nothing to play for this season.

Meanwhile, City face Aston Villa, a side that boasts two notable Anfield heroes in Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho.

Admittedly, it’ll be a big ask for Villa to get a result against a world-class and highly motivated City side.

Nonetheless, stranger things have happened in football.

All Liverpool can do is do their best at Anfield and hope things don’t go City’s way.

On Friday, Liverpool shared photos of Klopp and his players in training at Kirkby.

Several youngsters featured in the session, including highly-rated full-back Conor Bradley.

“An incredible talent”

The 18-year-old is one of the most talented youngsters in the Anfield ranks.

Bradley already has five Liverpool appearances to his name, including one in the Champions League.

Klopp himself has waxed lyrical about the youngster.

“Conor is an incredible talent, I love the boy to bits, he will be a Liverpool player in the future,” the Liverpool boss said in December.

Bradley has also won three senior caps for Northern Ireland.

His first start for his nation came in a World Cup qualifying loss to Bulgaria in October last year.

No player received a higher rating from the Belfast Telegraph than the Reds starlet, who was handed a seven.

And in their assessment, they alluded to the excitement that he brings to the team.

“First competitive start for the Liverpool youngster, his enthusiasm and sense of adventure going forward is a joy to watch,” they wrote.

Though Bradley will be lucky to get any game time on Sunday – the stakes are too high – it shows Klopp really rates him highly.
