Liverpool youngster Taiwo Awoniyi has opened up on how he feels about not being involved in the club’s recent success.
Awoniyi spent the 2019-20 season out on loan at Mainz.
With that being the case, he was not around to receive a Premier League winners medal.
However, Awoniyi has suggested that he preferred to spend the season at Mainz, as he got to play some senior football.
Awoniyi also added that he wants to work for his success.
“It would definitely be great to be a part of the success,” Awoniyi told the BBC Sport.
“But honestly, I would rather be where I am playing more and in a team that I can earn the medal of my own that I honestly worked for.
“It sounds a bit odd but that is the truth. To be compensated for not making any contribution is not fair.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We love Awoniyi’s attitude. The fact that he is prepared to work for his success rather than it being given to him sums up what sort of an individual he is.
However, it does appear as if Awoniyi does not have a long-term future at Anfield. He could only score the one goal at Mainz last season.
In his senior football career, he has only scored four goals in 43 appearances. The aforementioned numbers highlight that he is a player who is struggling for form.
Liverpool on the other hand are the current Premier League champions, which means that the Liverpool players are delivering.
