Liverpools Paul Glatzel has signed a new contract keeping him at the Anfield club.
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have proved they will support their youth and reward their hard work and loyalty.
In a statement from Liverpool on their website Liverpoolfc.com, they confirmed the deal.
The statement read:
“Paul Glatzel has today signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool Football Club.”
“The 18-year-old striker put pen to paper on the deal at Melwood on Wednesday as he continues his rehabilitation from a long-term knee issue sustained during the Reds’ pre-season friendly at Tranmere Rovers on July 11.”
The player himself said:
“I was disappointed to get my injury at the start of the season, but it’s a great feeling and it shows that the club has got faith in me.”
“Now I can just focus on my rehab and get back on the pitch.”
“I’ve been at the club for so long and I just want to keep going and see where it takes me.”
“Hopefully I can crack on now and keep going. The contract makes it easier.”
“Mentally, it’s good to be able to focus on the rehab and know that there’s people that have faith in me.”
“They know I’ll come back from my injury stronger and I’ll be ready when I’m back on the pitch.”
Prior to his injury, Glatzel scored 28 goals last season for Liverpool’s U18’s, and even clinched the FA youth cup top scorers award, with eight goals.
