Dalglish alerted as LFC starlet continues incredible goal run

Published Add your comment

Young Liverpool hotshot Adam Morgan continued his sensational goalscoring form with a tenth strike in as many games for the Reds' under 18s.

The Academy side ran out 2-1 winners against Manchester United at Carrington to go some way to avenging their ill-tempered FA Youth Cup defeat at the hands of the Red Devils.

Morgan has impressed for Rodolfo Borrell's side this season with his prowess in front of goal and has even been rewarded with some Reds reserve team action.

The 16-year-old scored on his debut for the Liverpool second string last year and his recent performances will no doubt have caught the eye of Kenny Dalglish.

Whether or not the Liverpool boss opts to draft the England under 17 international into his side any time soon remains to be seen, but Dalglish has previously demonstrated his willingness to put faith in youth.

The Scot called Raheem Sterling up from the Academy squad for Liverpool's Europa League squad that travelled to Sparta Prague and - although the teenage winger was not on the teamsheet - he gained valuable experience.


Morgan, meanwhile, is desperate to make his mark on the Liverpool first team as he tries to emulate his ultimate hero - Robbie Fowler.

"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."
