Former Red Edvard Tagseth recently spoke about Liverpool centre-back Rhys Williams.

Williams made his Liverpool senior debut against Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup this season.

Williams also made his Champions League debut for Liverpool against Ajax in the Amsterdam Arena earlier this month.

Tagseth, who used to play with Williams in Liverpool’s under-18 team, said that he knew his ex-teammate would become a very good player in the future.

Whilst talking about Williams, Tagseth said that he did miss his former Liverpool teammates and coaches, but he does not regret leaving the Reds for Rosenborg on a free transfer. Tagseth made the move in the summer of 2019.

Tagseth told the Liverpool Echo: “When I see Rhys coming on, I miss my friends and the coaches, but I’m happy I left. I had the Ajax game on in the background and I heard there was a sub coming on, so I watched the telly and it was Rhys standing there! It was amazing and he won some headers there as well. It was just like seeing him in the U18s!

“At U18s and when he played up with the U23s when I was there, he was always dominant with his physicality, and he is very good on the ball as well. I always thought he would become a top, top player.”

We don’t hold anything against Tagseth stating that he is happy he departed Liverpool.

He never made a senior appearance for Liverpool. By going to Rosenborg, Tagseth has been able to play first-team football.

The central midfielder has made 26 appearances for the Norwegian club. He has scored one goal and registered three assists for the club.

We wish Tagseth all the best in the future.
