Rodgers: Youth may not be answer

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has given youngsters their fair share of chances so far this season, but is wary of flooding the first team with them.

Striker Fabio Borini's broken foot has ruled him out for up to three months, leaving Luis Suarez as the only recognised senior striker. There has been a natural assumption that the likes of Adam Morgan, prolific for the youth teams and reserves, and summer signing Samed Yesil, who has an impressive goalscoring record for Germany's Under-19s, will provide the cover.

But Rodgers said: "It is great for me to see the young players. Adam Morgan scored a couple of excellent goals for the reserves and Samed Yesil is a goalscorer. It is just a case of weighing up whether they come in or not."
