Reds left-back Anderson Arroyo feels that he is not too far away from making his Liverpool debut.
Despite the fact that Arroyo has not actually featured for Liverpool’s under-23 side, he feels that a Liverpool debut is not too far away.
“Setting a date would be telling lies, but I don’t think it’s that far [away] if I keep doing things well, I sacrifice myself and give myself more,” Arroyo told AS Colombia.
“When they give me the opportunity to be with them again, I will continue to give everything and I’ll do things well.
“Many people in Liverpool who believe in me and if they do, I think I can do it. I see it [being] very close.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
I don’t mind Arroyo making statements like this. It shows that he has a goal to play for Liverpool and he will do anything to make that happen.
Getting a game for Liverpool’s under-23 side will allow him to impress and potentially get noticed by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
In terms of the first team, left-back Andy Robertson has set the standard for Arroyo. The Scot has scored two goals and registered seven assists in 41 appearances for Liverpool this season.
Arroyo has to get to that level if he wants to play for Liverpool’s first team in the future.
