Liverpool starlet hoping to become next Kop 'God'

Published Add your comment

Adam Morgan is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting prospects in the Liverpool Academy.

The teenage striker has scored in 13 consecutive games for the club - a tally of 18 goals - and is being talked about as the next scholar to make a mark on Kenny Dalglish's first team.

Morgan has seen two of his Youth Cup teammates - John Flanagan and Jack Robinson - thrown into the senior side within the last eight days and harbours ambitions of making his bow at the highest level.

A natural finisher with a decent turn of pace, Morgan - who turns 17 tomorrow - idolises Robbie Fowler and is hoping he can follow in the footsteps as the man known as 'God' by the Kop.

Fowler has recently been training with the Liverpool reserves, and Morgan has been awestruck by the goalscoring prowess of the Anfield legend.

"I've made no secret that I grew up worshipping Robbie Fowler, so to see him here at the Academy was surreal to say the least," Morgan told the official Liverpool website.

"I actually had a chat with him one afternoon when I came in with my parents to speak to [Liverpool Academy director] Frank McParland. Robbie came walking down the corridor and Frank called him over to introduce me to him.


"He asked me a question and I just started stuttering. I couldn't believe I was speaking to the player I grew up idolising. He was really nice to me and was very approachable.

"I watched him training with the reserve lads and he's still got it. He can't half finish!"

The Anfield faithful would surely love to witness a Fowler Mk.II terrorising defences in the not too distant future, and Morgan can see comparisons between his own style and that of the 36-year-old.

"I come from Halewood and have grown up supporting Liverpool. Fowler was my hero," Morgan said last year.

"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."
