A number of Liverpool fans have called for Jurgen Klopp to promote Adam Lewis to second-choice left-back for the 2019-20 campaign.
Andrew Robertson enjoyed an excellent season for the Reds and has nailed down the starting position at left full-back for the Merseyside giants.
However, Alberto Moreno’s departure means that the Champions League winners are short when it comes to backup for Robertson.
A number of the club’s supporters, however, feel that Lewis is ready to make the step into the first-team picture despite his lack of experience.
The 19-year-old, who signed a new long-term contract with the Reds in February, made 21 league appearances for Liverpool’s Under-23 side last term.
“The worst we’ve played all season” but “our most straightforward final since 2003” – a Liverpool fan reflects on the UCL final in the video below…
An England Under-20 international, Lewis came through the youth system at Anfield and there is no question that Klopp will be aware of his talents.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Liverpool fans in relation to the left-back position can be seen below:
We do not have to hire, the chance for the kid.

Give Adam Lewis a chance, if it doesn’t work out rotate Milner in when Robbo needs rest then re assess the situation in January or Summer next year
