Brendan Rodgers hails Jordon Ibe after Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Preston [Video]

Liverpool had a good pre-season workout today, eventually running out 2-1 winners against a tough Preston outfit.

Jordon Ibe was instrumental in the Reds’ win, setting up both goals, first for Suso, and then for Peterson to score the winner.

Manager Brendan Rodgers sung the 18 year old’s praises in his post-match interview, showing his delight that Ibe is responding to the management’s encouragement and direction.

With Luis Suarez being sold to Barcelona and Raheem Sterling now expected to step up to the plate, by the domino effect Ibe could be given the platform to become next season’s Sterling.
