According to Liverpool’s official website, before the League Cup against Arsenal, Liverpool assistant Lindes revealed that the team’s starting lineup will be composed of young players and experienced players. In the interview, Lindes said that coach Klopp was facing the young players. Your trust and hope are very important.
To praise our youth academy, all employees there deserve praise. I also want to praise the players, because they all have big hearts, which is incredible. When I came to Liverpool from Porto, I found that they have the strength to make every training session like a final. If those young players performed well in Portugal, then they were outstanding in Liverpool, incredible. If you want these players to enter the first team, the most important thing is to give them hope. A youth training coach may be able to have excellent coaching results and do all the right things, but if the first team coaching staff cannot create hope for the youth training children, then the situation will be very difficult. If those teenagers see someone from their peers, such as Arnold or Curtis Jones, then this will affect all young players in the youth academy.
As a member of the coaching staff of the first team, it is important to give the young players trust and let them train with the first team early instead of waiting until they are 21, 22, or 23 years old. This will familiarize them with the style of the first team. There is a connection between the first team and the youth academy, so the echelon's style of play will not be different. For example, our echelon has been quite mature in terms of high position pressure tactics. These small details are helpful for players to establish themselves in the first team. The most important thing is Jurgen, he gave these players hope and trust, which plays a key role in the development of players.
Step by step, focus on details and create space for the first team. These are the main elements. Three or four years ago, no one would have thought that Arnold could become England's most talented right back and win these awards. No matter how good the players are, give them trust. We know what to expect from them. When they do not perform well, they must also give trust and give another opportunity. Our team is like this, we will not give up players easily. But the most important thing is to leave room for the team lineup. For example, instead of introducing a right back, we first consider internal medicine Williams. Compared to the introduction of the right midfielder, our first consideration is to use Curtis Jones. There is room in our lineup, and young players can also be part of the first team, of course it depends on what events we play. If it is the Champions League, there can be 23 squads, and 18 in the Premier League. But what I want to say is that if you are in the first team, young players will get opportunities and continue to grow.
I think in this team, everyone respects each other's role. Even the starters, they know that the players who are not playing play an important role.
In this group, everyone has very good personalities, which is very helpful. Even if you can't start often, every member of the coaching staff and every teammate still respects you and knows your importance. The head coach has always said that it is not a good thing for a young player to leave too early and too soon. I think we have a good balance in this regard, and we are also giving the right players opportunities at the right time. This is an incredible process. We also saw the performance of Curtis Jones last season.
