Lewis: I'm hoping to grab my chance in the pre-season

For the top echelon of players, the pre-season may be all about fine tuning their body for the long season ahead.

However for youngsters like Adam Lewis, it presents itself as a wonderful opportunity.

With the departure of Alberto Moreno to Villarreal, Liverpool currently only have two senior left-backs on the books as it stands.

James Milner has filled the position admirably when required to do so, while Jurgen Klopp feels that Joe Gomez can also play there.

The Reds start their pre-season campaign on Thursday evening against League 1 side Tranmere at Prenton Park.

The 19 year-old Scouser has come through the clubs' academy ranks at U/18s and U/23s level and is now ready to make an impression in the mind of the manager.

Liverpool Echo reported Lewis as saying:

"In my position, with Alberto going, there's obviously a chance and he (the manager) gives the youngsters a go in pre-season.

"Of course, pre-season is an opportunity where you can show what you have got.

"The manager has seen me play, I've been here last season a few times, but the most important thing for me is to stay down here (at Melwood) and get on the bench in the upcoming season.

"Training with them (the first-team squad) just gives you a taste, it makes you want it more.

"Being a part of a big club is massive and it gives you a big confidence boost, and getting the call up to Melwood is always a good thing for a young lad - being a Scouser it makes it even more important."

However, in football you can never take anything for granted and Lewis is keeping a level head about what lies ahead.

"All I have to do is keep impressing in training and hopefully I get my chance."

 

In this day and age of big money signings, having another local lad who lives and breathes everything about the club in the match day squad will be pretty special indeed.

I don't think we'll win the league if we keep having to play players in sub-optimal roles so I hope this kid has got what it takes. 

City won the league back to back with Delph and Zinchenko at LB respectively.

Yeah but they also net spent £600 million over 5 seasons which is kind of my point. We don't have a lot of margin for error.
