Rodgers Has Big Plans For Jordon Ibe

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is eager to see the development of starlet Jordon Ibe, who set up the Reds only goal in last Wednesday night's friendly.

Kristoffer Peterson, 19, scored the equalizer against Brondby early into the second half, but credit has to go to Ibe for his trickery down the left wing to assist the goal.

The 18-year-old winger assisted seven in all competitions last season, getting on the scoresheet three times, and Rodgers admits there's a lot more to come from the youngster.

"It's going to be interesting for me to look at his development over pre-season," Rodgers said.

"You saw on Wednesday night that he's a really exciting young player. He's still only 18 years of age.

"He had a wonderful piece of skill and run for the goal, a good assist. That's something that we're looking to improve in Jordon - to score more goals and Continue reading "Rodgers Has Big Plans For Jordon Ibe"

"He had a wonderful piece of skill and run for the goal, a good assist. That's something that we're looking to improve in Jordon - to score more goals and assists.

"He's disappointed with his first touch when he was through on goal. He's an exciting talent who is very good in the one-v-one and works very hard at his game.

"We give him time; I don't necessarily need young players to be ready at 17 or 18, but certainly by 20 or 21, we want them to be ready.

"He's a different type of player [to Raheem Sterling], but certainly both players like to beat people and commit defenders. They are very aggressive with the ball. It's just looking at the next stage of his development so hopefully he can consistently do that."
