Ex-Premier League striker Nigel Jemson believes that Curtis Jones will play a decent role in Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.
Jones featured 34 times in all competitions for Liverpool last season, scoring four goals and provided five assists for his teammates.
The 20-year-old, who predominantly featured as a central-midfielder, missed the Reds’ first game of the season against Norwich City with concussion, but returned to the bench for Saturday’s victory over Burnley.
And Jemson believes that the youngster will have a much more important role to play under Jurgen Klopp this season with the likes of Gini Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri gone, exclusively telling Football FanCast: “I think he’s proved it already how good he is. You know, so again, you talk about Wijnaldum going and Shaqiri leaving then this may be the opportunity for someone like Curtis Jones to be there again.
“Curtis Jones did ever so well when he came in last year, full of energy, he was exciting, his touch was great and is a real joy, local lad at Liverpool. I think he’s going to look forward to the season ahead of him and I’m sure he will play a decent part.”
Jones has been brilliant for the Liverpool youth teams also, scoring 13 goals and provided a further six for the U23 squad, while he scored 15 goals for the U18s and he also scored 13 goals for the UEFA U19 team, providing three assists.
