A warm welcome and integration among the first-team squad by Jürgen Klopp made Liverpool’s recent trip to La Manga something Conor Masterson will never forget.
The teenager joined U18s teammate Yan Dhanda in joining the Reds’ senior players on their mid-season training camp in Spain.
For Masterson, it was an invaluable experience both personally and professionally – not least due to the time spent working closely with Klopp.
“He’s a great manager and he’s very good socialising with the players,” the 18-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com. “He is very good on one-to-ones and giving you advice.
“He made me more tactically aware of what I need to do and it was a great experience.
“The manager gives us great confidence because he really wants to see what you can do, what we have [coming through] in the Academy, and it’s great for us.
