Wales forward Woodburns says, “I will go where Klopp wants me to go”

Ben Woodburn says that he trust the decision of team boss Jurgen Klopp and believes that whatever decision he takes will be in his benefit.

The player is presently in USA with rest of the Liverpool teammates to play International friendlies and hopes that he will get enormous amount of opportunity to impress the German boss.

Liverpool has 3 games to play in USA and  with Jurgen Klopp set to field two different XIs in the game he is expected to get at least 45 minutes to impress the boss.

The forward who has represented the Liverpool 1st team side in 11 games and also has a goal against his name hopes to be a part of the 1st team in more number of games and have a bright future for the Reds.

Liverpool has not yet decided over the 18-year-old future at the club of whether to retain the player or to send the player on loan.

In talks with a reporter in USA, the player said,

“The manager is still thinking about what’s best for me,” he says. “I’ll agree with whatever he thinks. I’ll trust his decision and do what he wants me to do.”

The player has gained development in his appearance as he looks physically more strong than last season. Klopp has used him as a deep-lying midfielder, as well as a wide attacker which suggest that the player can turn out to be a versatile asset for the squad.

“I think when you’re young playing lots of different positions is going to help,” Woodburn says.

“Obviously there will be a stage where I need to think about which position I do want to play. I think that will come in the next few years. It hasn’t yet!

“I’ve grown up a bit in the past few seasons, but I’ve been doing a lot of stuff in the gym with the lads and it’s definitely filled me out and I feel a lot bigger and like I have more of a presence as a player.”

The player also spoke about his mental strength improvement by sitting on the sidelines last season. He said,“I think it will improve me as a player, I think training with all the players that we have made me a better player”

“Even though I didn’t get too much game time, I think the experiences I got with the Champions League was definitely a good thing for me”

He also applauded and thanked the Liverpool fans for the support they gave him. He said, “The fans last year were unbelievable and they helped the team a lot to get to the final. That day in Rome was crazy – I’ve never experienced anything like it!”

“It was good to see Trent play in the game and he did well. But afterwards it was just… crazy!”

The player also thanked Lijnders for all the influence that he made on the player to help him for the coming future.

He said, “Definitely, he was the link to the first team when I was at the academy. That season we had with him as coach at U16 level, he’s stayed the same and he’s helped me a lot”

“He’s so enthusiastic and his football brain is crazy. He knows so much about football that I think none of the players now even know. You can see on the pitch how much he wants to be there and I think it pays off and shows with the squad on the pitch.”

Liverpool is set to play their next gme against the Dortmund, with Manchester United and Manchester City to follow.

The player looked ready for all the three ties. He said, “Every game is a chance to impress the manager, and especially against top teams like Dortmund, United and City. It will be a good test.”
