Talent who wowed Liverpool captain reportedly training with first-team

Paul Glatzel has been handed a chance to impress Jurgen Klopp during the international break.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has taken the time during the international break to run the rule over eight academy products, including the exciting talent who wowed Jordan Henderson.

Young striker Paul Glatzel joined several first-team players in training with the first-team ahead of Sunday’s game against Leicester City at Anfield.

The 19-year-old is highly-rated by the coaching staff at Liverpool and a first-team chance looks to be forthcoming in the future.

Henderson is certainly a big fan of the striker, praising him during a July interview.

He told the club’s official website: “Most recently we’ve had Paul Glatzel back in full training and everyone is made up about that.

“He loves to score goals and seeing him back in training and looking sharp is magic.

“If anything Paul epitomises the attitude and character needed. He’s an example to a lot of the young players.”

Glatzel has scored goals for fun at under-18 level and has more recently made the step up to the under-23 ranks.


The highlight of his career to date came in the 2018/19 campaign when he fired 21 goals in 30 games.

Liverpool won the FA Youth Cup that year with Glatzel striking up a lethal partnership with Bobby Duncan.

Future star

The youngster is yet to make his first-team debut but the chance to impress Klopp will have been a big boost to the youngster’s confidence.

Mo Salah is set to miss out but Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota will all be available.

The best Glatzel can perhaps hope for his a place on the bench in the short-term.

All he can do is continue working hard and be ready to grasp his chance when called upon by Klopp.
