Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has tipped Rhian Brewster to make a big impact for Liverpool as the youngster continues to impress with his pre-season performances.
The Reds forward has been in fantastic form, scoring in all three of the fixtures so far, giving fans a glimpse of what’s to come ahead of the 2019/2020 campaign.
Brewster is a player who Sancho knows well from their time together during the youth setups with England. Both players were crowned as world champions with the Under-17s back in 2017.
The Dortmund man was full of praise for Brewster and discussed his qualities after his side defeated Liverpool 3-2 in the United States. He said, as per a report from The Telegraph:
He is a great player. I feel like he is at the right club, he is developing and he is still so young. He is developing and that is the main thing. Just give him the time and patience and you will see.
I played with him a lot for England and he scored a lot of goals for us and I have assisted him. It’s a good thing for us to have someone like him.
The Reds may not have won against their German counterparts, but Brewster again found the back of the net, this time from the penalty spot. Sancho claimed that it was a sight he had seen all too often before. He said:
I knew the penalty was going in as soon as he put the ball in his hands. I’ve seen him do it all the time, top corner. I just knew what was coming. He spends time after training, practising and practising his technique.
Following a serious injury that kept him out for the majority of last season, the 19-year-old looks set to make up for lost time with the impact he has already made so far, and could feature in the first team next term.
