' Timing is everything ' - Brewster ready to pay back Liverpool after unexpected permanent switch to Sheffield


Rhian Brewster is relishing a 'weird' return to Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp let him go in the summer

Rhian Brewster relishing his return to Anfield ahead of Premier League matchday.

The Former Liverpool youngster returns to Anfield on Saturday for the Blades' Premier League first leg tie with Jurgen Klopp's champions.

Speaking ahead of the game, Brewster said: "When I got injured I was out for a long time.

"You look for stuff in your life that helps you and symbolises your life. The quote ‘timing is everything’ does symbolise it."

"It’s going to be a bit weird,’ Brewster, 20, said. "But it will be a nice moment, just to see everybody. I didn’t get to say goodbye because it [the transfer] happened so quick."

Brewster joined Liverpool aged 14 and was immensely popular among players and staff for his infectious personality but also his considerable talent, his finishing ability in particular impressing his former team-mates.

"All the players say how good of a finisher I am and stuff like that. Coming from them, that is amazing,’ he said, puffing out his cheeks.

"That means a lot but that’s not for me to take and be ok with, it’s for me to carry on doing what I’m doing, carry on working hard and practicing on it"

The long list of Liverpool players he struck up good relationships with, both youthful and senior, was testament to his popularity.

In an ideal world, Jurgen Klopp would have liked to keep Brewster but the German decision was slammed in the end.

Lessons learned from Klopp and stars like Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah will never be forgotten either. James Milner also left a big impression.

The former Liverpool striker said:  said: ‘Not one person slacks off and I’ll always remember that. Even if I feel I want to.

"For example James Milner. He’s in his 30s and still going strong. That’s for a reason. Because he is always in the gym, eating right, doing everything he can to be the best. That’s one thing that I’ll 100 per cent take from Liverpool and James Milner.

"I would 100 per cent take that [longevity] and look what he is doing in his 30s and why can't I do that?

"The standards, they set the bar very high and that’s something I will never forget and hopefully people looking at me, when I’m older they will hopefully feel the same way."
