Published Add your comment

Liverpool caretaker reserve team coach Pep Segura has heaped praise on rising talent Adam Morgan.

The teenage striker has been earning rave reviews at Anfield after an impressive scoring run for the U18 side was followed up with a goal on debut for the Liverpool second string, and the club's former academy technical manager has been quick to praise the youngster.

“We need to understand that Adam Morgan is a natural goalscorer who has quality," Segura told the official Liverpool website ahead of tonight's clash against Manchester City.

"We are very happy with how he is improving. He is scoring for the U18s and did it for us in the last game against Bolton.

"He has done very well, especially when the U18s lost Michael Ngoo through injury earlier in the season. He is a fantastic player and someone who can have a bright future."

The 16-year-old has now scored 18 goals in just 13 matches at all levels for the club, with his winner against Bolton followed by a strike in the 6-0 academy rout against FA Youth Cup conquerors Manchester United.

A talented England U17 international playing for his hometown club, Segura is confident the player can continue his development at Liverpool and go on to become a future star at Anfield.
