Liverpool fans wowed by teenager who 'outshone Origi and Taki' against Mainz
Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to praise Kaide Gordon for his display in Friday’s pre-season victory.
The 16-year-old only joined the Reds academy in February this year but he’s already making waves at Kirkby.
Gordon netted six goals in eight games for Marc Bridge-Wilkinson’s side in the Under-18 Premier League.
Now, the former Derby gem has been shining in pre-season for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Gordon featured against Wacker Innsbruck last week, coming close with one effort and looking lively and confident throughout.
Klopp then brought him on in the second half against Mainz and he found the back of the net, though it was disallowed for offside.
Gordon had several other chances to score, pressing the goalkeeper into an error before the hour mark before forcing another save.
What Liverpool fans are saying
Quite a few Liverpool fans are tipping the teenage forward for a bright future at Anfield.

A good run out for the squad.— Daniel Gore 🇵🇸 (@KoptimusPrime) July 23, 2021
Keita the standout performer. Kaide Gordon did well again.
Nat Phillips continues to look like a seasoned veteran at the back. Always in control.
If he does move on, whoever gets him will have got a bargain #LFC
