Liverpool Wonder Kid Gives Injury Update & Reveals How Jurgen Klopp Has Helped Him During Rehab

Liverpool wonder kid Rhain Brewster has been out injured since January with ankle ligament damage but he is nearing a return.

Brewster revealed that he has started running again and that he hopes to get match fit to make the bench and hopefully make an appearance for the Reds.

The 18-year-old hopes the injury does not flare up again but that he is not going to let any setbacks hold him back.

Brewster told the official Liverpool website the following regarding his injury status: “Really well. I’ve started to progress on the running side of things. I haven’t had any setbacks at the moment and, touch wood, it stays the same because I can’t wait to get back and try to get on the bench or maybe feature in a game. Hopefully, when I’m back I will get a few opportunities and I’ll take them, but I’m very happy with what I’m doing at the moment so hopefully the injury doesn’t flare up again. Even if it does set me back a little bit I’ve just got to keep going. I will be back soon.”

The rising star also underlined how important head coach Jurgen Klopp has been during his recovery process.

Brewster made it clear that Klopp has gone out of his way to keep his spirits high and check up on how his recovery is going.

“The manager makes a few jokes about me not having been on the pitch for so long! But it’s good to have a manager like that managing me because it does keep me happy. It would be easier for him to ignore me and think, ‘I’ll wait until Rhian gets fit’, and not really interact with me, but he has. He’s kept my morale high and I can’t thank him enough… well, I could if I score some goals for him! Seriously, I can’t thank the manager enough and also every single one of the players. They all talk to me every day, ask me how I am, when I’ll be back fit and stuff like that. It means a lot. I just can’t wait to be back and hopefully help the team go far in the Premier League and Champions League,” he added.

Brewster is an England youth international but is also eligible to represent Turkey and play under domestic status in the country due to having a Turkish mother.

The young forward is expected to join the Liverpool first-team once he makes a full recovery.
