Kamil Grabara may have just squandered his chances of ever making his senior Liverpool debut following his recent comment on Twitter.
The Poland youth international is currently out on loan with Danish club Aarhus GF, where he will spend the full 2020/21 season. He recently signed a new long-term deal with the Merseyside outfit, but he is currently behind the likes of Alisson, Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher in the pecking order for The Reds.
With 21-year-old Kelleher looking for a short-term move away from Anfield, the path could have opened for Grabara to challenge Adrian. However, after laughing at Oliver Holt’s report of Liverpool monitoring Jack Butland, he may have just placed himself even further down the pecking order.
Grabara’s tweet is quite cryptic – posting just a laughing emoji in reply to the transfer rumour. The youngster may be trying to indicate that there’s no truth to the rumour, or he could be mocking the idea of Stoke City’s Butland moving to the champions of England.
Whichever it is, it’s certainly not a good look for a player hoping to become a senior member of such a big Premier League club.

Jurgen Klopp has been actively giving opportunities to Liverpool’s Academy graduates, with Curtis Jones and Neco Williams featuring more and more for the first team. Of course, Trent Alexander-Arnold is a huge example of Klopp’s faith in the youth system but the manager is certainly not one to tolerate immature or disrespectful behaviour.
Indeed, Mamadou Sakho was phased out of the Reds team after several reports of lateness and breaching of club rules (via ESPN). The Frenchman was then eventually sold, and if the manager can easily scrap a senior player, he would almost certainly shift on a young player who is yet to make a first team appearance.
