‘Natural on the ball’: Some Liverpool fans hail 16-year-old’s display in pre-season game
Kaide Gordon played for Liverpool during one of their pre-season games on Tuesday – and some Reds fans on Twitter were extremely excited by the prospect’s display.
The Reds scheduled two 30-minute friendlies in Salzburg this evening.
First of all, Jurgen Klopp’s side played a short game against Wacker Innsbruck. That was followed by a completely different Liverpool XI playing against Stuttgart.
The Merseyside club drew 1-1 with Austrian opposition Wacker Innsbruck in the 30-minute game, with Klopp using a number of upcoming stars in the team.
Aged 16, Liverpool talent Gordon played in the pre-season match.
The English right-winger caught the eye of the club’s fanbase with his performance, as he didn’t look out of place alongside some senior figures that were also playing.
He starred for Liverpool’s Under-18s side toward the back end of last season, scoring six goals in his final four league appearances.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media immediately picked out teenage prospect Kaide Gordon for his Tuesday performance.
It’s a major statement for someone his age to be with the senior group this summer, so Klopp must like him.
He’s done himself no favours today now that some supporters are talking about him.
Here are some Reds fans discussing Gordon:
