Liverpool youngster Conor Bradley has opened up on his past year.
The 18-year-old right-back has been given plenty of opportunity in the past 12 months, which he touched on during a recent interview.
Bradley also spoke about his goal between now and this time next year.
Speaking with BBC Sport, he said the following: “It’s been a mad year for me personally being called up to the senior team this time last year and then starting against Greece, I just try and take it all in my stride and keep working hard and keep doing what I usually do.
“I feel I have come on leaps and bounds over the last year and hopefully I can do something from now until next year.”
Bradley added: “It was really was a dream come true when I stepped out onto the pitch and heard all the fans singing, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone'.
“Coming on in Europe was also very special. It was a wonderful night and I was thankful to Jurgen (Klopp) for me giving me the chance.
“Everyone knows all about the manager. He helps you so much.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
Bradley is clearly a talented player. There is a reason why Klopp gave the right-back an opportunity in the first-team.
Unfortunately for Bradley, Trent Alexander-Arnold is ahead of him in the pecking order at Anfield. The 23-year-old doesn't appear to be leaving the Reds anytime soon.
Therefore, Bradley will have to depart Liverpool if he wants to play regular senior football. It has been a long time since Liverpool have been this strong.
Klopp possesses top players in every position, which does make it hard for the German to give young footballers an opportunity at first-team level.
But, clubs have to be prepared to lose players if they want to challenge for silverware.
