The 19-year-old made his return from injury for the U23s in early December, and has been a regular fixture in Mike Garrity’s team since then.

During the Reds’ training camp in Tenerife earlier this week, Klopp revealed that he sat down with Ojo recently after the England U19 international had asked him to outline what he needs to do to get another chance at senior level.
