Jurgen Klopp gushes about 'real talent' after Liverpool 4-0 LASK

Jurgen Klopp loved what he was seeing from one 'real talent' after Liverpool beat LASK 4-0 in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Liverpool produced an emphatic win on Thursday evening to qualify from their UEFA Europa League group as group winners. They beat LASK 4-0, scoring twice either side of half time.

Luis Diaz opened the scoring, Mohamed Salah scored a penalty and Cody Gakpo bagged two on a fantastic night. This was Liverpool at their dominant best.

But that wasn't all. Jurgen Klopp was also left loving what he saw from Conor Bradley, who came off the bench for his European debut late on. Bradley, who spent time out on loan at Preston North End, is clearly a player Klopp wants in his future squad.

"I love it," he told TNT Sports when asked about Bradley getting on. "You can see in those few moments that he is a real talent for us.

"We really count on him. It is so nice. There are a lot of positives. I told him after the game to enjoy it. He is very football wise but the body still needs to grow."

Bradley has always been an interesting talent for Liverpool and one with a bright future in football. He's just also had a tough task ahead of him in needing to usurp Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back. Given the latter isn't exactly an ageing player, it was always difficult to see how Bradley got regular football.

But perhaps this new midfield/right-back hybrid role could help him out. Alexander-Arnold is now spending more time in midfield, potentially offering the right-back spot to someone else. The Scouser moved there against LASK when Bradley got on for Liverpool and even registered a late assist.

Klopp certainly sounds eager to see more of Bradley and this might be how he does that.
