Klopp To Liverpool Fans On Woodburn: “Don’t Get Too Excited”

share on:

Liverpool advanced to the next stage of the EFL cup after a 2-0 win over Leeds, and Ben Woodburn got on the score sheet, making him the youngest player to ever score for the Reds.

However, Jurgen Klopp has warned the media and the fans not to get overexcited about the youngster, who came on as a substitute to seal the win and displace Michael Owen in the club’s history books.

The youngsters that featured in the cup tie had a profitable night, with Trent Alexander-Arnold performing well at right-back, before providing the assist for Origi’s opener in the 76th minute.

“We know what Ben is capable of and what he is already able to do,” Klopp said.

“My first job is to help these boys so that they can be the best – in this case, Ben Woodburn.

“There’s a lot of things to do, especially to keep the public away as long as possible.

“That’s quite a difficult thing to do. But on the other hand, we only bring him in because we want to use him.

“So that means when he’s on the pitch he’s absolutely allowed to score goals, to prepare situations, to make crosses – how Trent did, for example.

“So, all good. I’m really happy for him. The only problem is I’m a little bit afraid about you [the media].

“That’s why I’m so quiet on this. Think and do what you want, but don’t write anything – only ‘Goalscorer, Ben Woodburn.’ Done. Quite a challenge!”
