‘Mbappe who?’ – Liverpool fans react as Rhian Brewster travels to Barcelona

Rhian Brewster is highly-rated by Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Rhian Brewster is in the Liverpool squad travelling to Barcelona for tomorrow night’s semi-final, the club’s official website reports.

Brewster has been out injured for more than a year but he recently returned to action for the U23 side.

Now, his progress has been acknowledged and rewarded by Klopp, who has included him in his squad to fly to Barcelona.

On the 19-year-old’s inclusion, Klopp told the club’s official website: “He is the next really exciting prospect. If you see him training… next season will be his season, his first real season.

“He is now physically an adult, he grew a lot, he worked a lot and the training session today was, to be honest, pretty impressive.

“He is with us, he is our player and we want to have him around. In this case I thought, ‘Come on, it’s Barcelona, let’s give him a first sniff.’”

Brewster is unlikely to play but he remains highly-rated by club and country. The England youth international was part of the U17 World Cup winning squad in 2017.

During that tournament, Brewster scooped the golden boot and he is thought to be a top talent for the future. Here are some tweets from Liverpool fans discussing Brewster’s inclusion in the first-team squad.
