A few weeks ago, even Liverpool fans may not have heard of Rhian Brewster.
However, it’s fair to say to say the 17-year-old is making quite the name for himself at the Under-17 World Cup.
Brewster scored a hat-trick as England beat the United States 4-1 in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
How would he follow that up?
With another hat-trick in the semi-final against Brazil as the Three Lions triumphed 3-1.
But will he ever make the grade at Liverpool?
Of course, it’s too early to say but Ben Woodburn - one year his senior - has already been given first-team opportunities by Jurgen Klopp.
While Brewster will have to keep working hard on the pitch, it seems his behaviour off of it is spot on as well.
We’ve discovered a lovely little story about Klopp’s second day and what happened when Brewster bumped into him.
According to ESPN, here’s how it went:
"On just his second day as Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp went down to the club's Kirkby academy to watch the U18s play Stoke City. At half-time in that affair, Klopp made the short walk to a nearby pitch to observe the U16s, where Brewster was playing.
"With Klopp watching, in a rather bizarre move, Brewster was taken off after 50 minutes for the U16s and then told to head down to main pitch at Kirkby. The striker was racing down to the older age group and with the sound of football studs clattering on concrete, initially darted past Klopp. Realising his error, the 15-year-old Brewster paused, then circled back round to approach the newly appointed first-team manager, shake his hand and then go on to make his U18s debut in a 10-minute cameo. A switched-on player on and off the pitch."
While Klopp would have enjoyed that act, it looks as though he’s also impressed with his potential. Jonathan Northcroft, the football correspondent for the Sunday Times, has revealed exactly what Klopp and Pep Lijnders think of the striker.
"They adore him. F*** me. They absolutely adore him."
