Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left stunned after what he saw from 21-year old youngster

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has been a huge admirer for his youngster and prodigies. Continuing in the list, one more Liverpool youngster has really impressed Klopp in recent days. The Reds’ academy prodigy, Owen Beck, is currently on a loan move at Dundee, in Scotland.

The German has been one of the few managers in the football who often rely on his youngsters for transition. There has been a list of players in the current squad as well. Players like Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, Jarell Quansah, Conor Bradley and Bobby Clark have all appeared this season in the senior outfit.

Jurgen Klopp heaps praise on Liverpool’s youngster

Beck has been a player leaving impression on the boss away from the club. He was earlier loaned to Dundee, came back to Liverpool and again loaned to Dundee. Speaking before the Chelsea clash, Klopp said he was not happy with Owen not making into the starting squad on loan.

Owen as well, like Calvin, had previously a difficult loan spell. He didn’t play in Portugal, came back here and was at Bolton as well [as Bradley] and didn’t play there either, so we were all like, ‘How can that happen?’ because we really think highly of him.

So, he goes to Scotland, is playing there and it gave him a massive boost. He arrived here and looked like a man, really, left-back, really ready to go. And now, the other boys are coming back we have the opportunity to give him that time [on loan] again, it makes sense.”

Owen is a highly rated product of the academy and also within it as well. His second spell at Dundee is looking a bit more saturated than the previous one. On his return to the club he immediately registered an assist against Aberdeen, which is exactly what you want to see from the 21-year-old.
