Liverpool leaving no stone unturned

Published Add your comment

Damien Comolli admits he has been satisfied by the progress that has been made at Anfield over the past few years, and is confident young players will now see Liverpool as the place to be.

The club's desire to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of the best up-and-coming talent means the Reds' academy is beginning to improve on both a local and global level.

"I think the beauty of the Academy at Liverpool is that we do both," Comolli told "If you look at the players who are now in the first-team and coming from the Academy, they are from Liverpool or around the local area. Then we have other players from all over the world.

"It's just the beauty of the Barclays Premier League at the moment. We are very attractive for everyone around the world and thankfully we have the financial resources to scout on a global scale and that makes it very interesting."


The club's director of football feels the Far East is a real source of potential talent, and believes Liverpool now have the scouting network in place to unearth an Asian star of the future.

"We think it's an untapped market," he added. "It has such a vast population and there are an incredible number of youngsters playing football in that part of the world.

"Statistically we think there will be good players coming out of these countries. With China being the biggest one and football being the most popular sport amongst young people, we feel it is an opportunity to find a quality player."
