Redknapp lauds Liverpool’s 'revolution'

Liverpool hero Jamie Redknapp has revealed that Kenny Dalglish is aiming to develop youth at the club, rather than buying already established talent into Anfield.

"Liverpool fans demand their club develop their own players,” Redknapp said in his column for the Daily Mail.

“In recent years you would have thought none of them existed, but Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has plundered the academy because of injuries."


Liverpool squared up against Arsenal yesterday, who are famous for blooding their own youths and not spending big on bought in talent. Liverpool starlet John Flanagan was in the starting line up after an impressive debut against Manchester City, and fellow youngster Jack Robinson was sent on at 21 minutes.

"Their two full backs, Flanagan and Robinson, were excellent yesterday, up against Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri.

“Dalglish has praised the academy staff and, along with the progress of midfielder Jay Spearing, this is why."

Liverpool will be looking to emulate Arsenal’s success through their revolutionary youth policy, with the London club qualifying regularly for Champions League and currently being placed at second favourites to win the title.
