Klopp feels Rhian Brewster can play a 'major role' next season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that Rhian Brewster can play a major role at the club this season.

The teenage striker scored twice as the Reds thrashed Tranmere 6-0 in their opening pre-season friendly, and Klopp says the teenager is in his plans.

“I love the boy, he is a fantastic player, but one of the goals I would have scored.

“One hundred percent it's a big season for him but it depends on him as well, Divock Origi stays, which is good news, Bobby Firmino is still there.

“Rhian Brewster is a top striker, he is a top talent and I have told him already that he has an important role this year but how important depends on him.

“We will see. He has to play different positions as well — the centre, wing is possible I think. We will see how we line up, but there will be opportunities for him, I am sure.”

Liverpool have signed young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg but Klopp says it's unlikely the European champions will be adding many more players this summer.

“Rhian Brewster, Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t play last year, all the young boys didn’t play for us last year.

“The transfer market is open. We will see what we do, but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.”
