Meet the Academy: Corey Whelan

Corey Whelan senses opportunity.

“Every time you put a Liverpool shirt on, it’s an opportunity,” the versatile Reds U23s defender tells

“Every game, you’ve got to treat it as an opportunity, because you don’t know what the manager’s doing. He could be watching, or he could watch a video of the game, you just don’t know.

“And if you do get the chance to get down to Melwood to train with the first team, that’s a massive opportunity.”

Whelan, it’s fair to say, does not lack focus or ambition.

Having seen a number of his Academy peers make the step up to become involved with Jürgen Klopp’s squad this season, the 19-year-old wants to follow that same path.

“That’s the aim. We train here every day with a great set of lads and we get first-team players dropping in now and again and their attitude is always top class. So definitely, you’ve got to aim for that – at the end of the day, that’s the final goal,” Whelan says.

“Every day you’ve got to work hard. I don’t think you can miss a day, you can’t come in to your place of work and think ‘I’m going to put 60 per cent in today’, because that won’t get you to where you want to go.

“I want to work hard, impress the staff here and hopefully get a call to go there and then impress the manager.
