Ibe praised by Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan RodgersBrendan Rodgers believes there is bright future for the youngsters at Liverpool, with recent debutant Jordan Ibe a great example.

Former Wycombe midfielder Ibe made his first-team debut in the win over QPR last Sunday and Rodgers predicts a bright future for the 17-year-old as well as the rest of the youngsters at the club.

Ibe made his bow for the Reds on the same day that veteran centre half Jamie Carragher called it a day at Anfield.

Rodgers said: “I thought he did very well as the game went on, it’s not easy at Anfield and it was his first appearance for the first team.

“I thought he got better and better, I told him he would get 60 to 65 minutes and get a feel for it.

“He’s got really good potential and you can see he is a footballer, he linked up very well with (Philippe) Coutninho.

“I think for all the young players, hopefully they see from this season there is hope for them here and they will get an opportunity but there’s an awful long way to go for a lot of them.”
