Have Liverpool unearthed the next Robbie Fowler?

Published Add your comment

Liverpool youngster Adam Morgan continues to make waves at Anfield and now has his sights on emulating his hero.

Kop legend Robbie Fowler is the man 16-year-old Morgan models himself on and - if his goalscoring record is anything to go by - he could well become a future favourite of the Anfield faithful.

"I come from Halewood and have grown up supporting Liverpool. Fowler was my hero," Morgan told the official Liverpool website.

"Just as I was starting to really understand football he was at his best. He was left-footed like me so he's the player I've always tried to model myself on.

"I'd like to think I play a bit like him and it would be great to do even a slight amount of what he achieved.

"I've been here since I was nine and as a striker I've always love scoring goals.

"I think I scored 80-odd one season when I was playing in the U10s. I'll never forget that."

The England under 17 striker has quickly moved up the ranks at Anfield and recently showed glimpses of the quality he could bring to Liverpool in the future with a goal for the reserves on debut.

"It wasn't a bad strike to be fair and it was on my reserve team debut too," he laughed.

"If it turns out to be a contender in the LFC goal of the month for November then I'll have to make sure I get on the website and vote for myself!

"But in all seriousness, I don't hit many of them so to come off the bench and produce a strike like that was the perfect way to make my mark. I'm more of a goal poacher in and around the box. Luckily for me it went in."

Alongside Morgan, Liverpool have a number of young talents with the potential to one day become Anfield heroes - with Spanish youngster Suso impressing in the reserves and Dani Pacheco and Martin Kelly beginning to get opportunities in Roy Hodgson's first team.

Liverpool owners NESV have expressed their desire to invest in youth at Anfield, and the emergence of players like Morgan will no doubt prove to Reds fans that there is plenty to be optimistic about for the future.
