Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is convinced they have something special in Jordon Ibe.
The exciting winger was a stand-out during the team’s tour of Asia and Australia this month, and after the sale of Raheem Sterling, he is destined to become the clubs next big thing.
“It’s year-on-year improvement,” the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We mustn’t forget he’s still only 19. He broke into the team young and had some appearances. We felt he needed a loan, has gone out and did really well.
“Then when he came back last season he was exceptional in his performances. I think he really excites the supporters.
“He’s definitely a player that we want to really create into a top-class performer, but we’ve got to give him that time and we’re creating the environment for him to do that.
“You see how exciting he is, but he still has a lot of potential and work to do. He’s one that certainly will feature heavily this year.”
