Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers bigs up Jordon Ibe: ‘No doubt he has great qualities’ [Video]
Liverpool’s pre-season has only just begun, but already teenager Jordon Ibe is getting rave reviews from his contributions this summer.
18-year-old Ibe, who had a successful loan at Birmingham last season, has been involved in both Liverpool’s first two pre-season games against Brondby and Preston.
Liverpool are now in America, and on Tuesday, in a press conference, the guys from Redmen TV asked Rodgers about his opinion of Ibe.
Joining in with the positive headlines surrounding the attacking midfielder, who is often liked to Raheem Sterling, Rodgers spoke highly of Ibe, publicly stating “no doubt he has great qualities”.
Whether Ibe will be able to force his way into the Liverpool first team this campaign, however, seems doubtful, with competition for places in the Reds midfield jam-packed with the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Sterling, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Lazar Markovic, Lucas and Emre Can, to name but a few.
