Meet the Academy: Liam Millar


“Everybody told me it’s more physical up here but I didn’t believe it and then, first session, bang!”

Liam Millar is recalling his first experience of football in the north of England, and the welcome he received to life as a Liverpool player last summer.

“In London, it’s really like quick possession – quick, quick, quick, pass, pass, pass – but when I first came here, George Johnston hit me in my first session – I was like, ‘argh!’”

For a player who had already been through the difficult process of adapting to life in an entirely new country in his early teens, though, some added physicality proved to be no big deal.

And just a couple of months on from that tough introduction, the Canadian forward announced himself to Reds fans with a debut hat-trick in an opening-day 4-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.

Millar followed that up by signing his first professional contract in September, taking the latest step forward in a career that has, thus far, seen the young striker tackle every obstacle he has faced.
