‘Running and endeavour’, ‘goal threat’: Manager hails Liverpool loanee, Anfield long-term future?

Liverpool academy graduate Rhian Brewster continues to deliver away from Anfield on loan and once again has been singled out for praise by his current manager.

The 20-year-old forward is one of the most highly rated players who have come through the Liverpool academy in recent years and has been thoroughly impressive at Swansea City.

Prior to the suspension of English football, Brewster had netted four goals in 11 Championship games.

After the restart, the 5ft 11in ace has since claimed another four, while his superb free kick against Millwall was given as an own goal for their keeper.

On Wednesday evening, Brewster helped Swansea to a 3-1 win at Birmingham which has put the Welsh side within touching distance of the playoffs.

“That’s where you want him – in the box and scoring goals and if he gets a chance in the box, you fancy him,” Steve Cooper is quoted by FourFourTwo as saying about Brewster.

 

“It wasn’t an easy finish – you might look back on it and say he should score but he kept it down well and took the opportunity.

“I was really pleased for him again. I thought he could have got another when he might have gone round the keeper. But he was full of running and endeavour again and a goal threat.”

TBR View:

Brewster is a young striker of the highest calibre and it’s such a shame his injury hampered his development when it did, but now he’s back to fitness and getting first-team experience at Swansea, he’s looking right back on track.

The Reds are blessed with numerous world-class attacking talents plus some great youngsters coming through, and with Jurgen Klopp confirming talks will be held between the club and the player’s camp at the end of the season (Liverpool Echo), hopefully his long-term future will be at Anfield.
