Un-23 boss urge Klopp to rest key Liverpool stars for academy players


Liverpool Un-23 coach Neil Critchley want youngstars to impress Klopp.

Liverpool youth team players Conor Masterson, 19, Curtis Jones and Rafael Camacho, both 17, have been training with the first team.

The trio were in the substitute list for last weekend's Merseyside derby as Jurgen Klopp looked to manage his injury-plagued squad in between the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.

But with a last-four Champions League tie coming and a maximum of eight points from five matches required to secure a top-four Premier League finish, Critchley hopes some of his youngstars may get a first team debut before the end of the campaign.

"We were hoping one of them would get on the pitch,” said Critchley.
“But maybe, between now and the end of the season, if they train well that opportunity might arise for them.

"It is well publicised there are injury problems at the moment and if you get your chance by default so be it.

"Suddenly you get the manager thinking about you differently and you have to grasp that opportunity because it might not come around again.

"Don't go to Melwood and make the numbers up, don't go as a tourist, you're there to do a job and you need to make sure you get noticed.

"The way the season progresses, with those two Champions League games coming up and if we can be in the top four guaranteed, then maybe the manager thinks 'If they've done well in training, they might get an opportunity'.

"They've got to be ready for it."
