In June of last year, Liverpool recruited Calvin Ramsey (19) from Aberdeen, Scotland, as a backup to right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.
As a fullback prospect capable of playmaking from the side, expectations스포츠토토 were raised with a puzzle that matched the propensity of manager Jurgen Klopp (55). Last season, he scored 1 goal and 9 assists in 33 official games, including 22 Scottish Premiership games, and showed considerable achievement in his stats.
At the young age of 18, he was praised for his sophisticated kicking power, aggressive defense, and decent stamina enough to take over as Everdeen set-piece kicker.
This is why Liverpool took out of their wallet the highest ever transfer fee of 6.5 million pounds (about 10.5 billion won) from Everdeen. A healthy internal competition was expected with Alexander Arnold, who was pointed out for his inconsistent defense.
However, due to frequent injuries, he stayed in two games this season. In ‘Klopp’s fullback hopeful’ and ‘Andy Robertson’s right-hand version’, he fell into a glass body and burned the inside of the club and fans.
He only played one League Cup match and one UEFA Champions League (UCL) match this year. The total playing time is only 124 minutes.
Because of this, James Milner and Joe Gomez took turns as fullbacks, and the club’s rotation operation was generally twisted. In the end, he went to the operating table due to a knee injury in February and ended this season in vain.
In a media interview at the time, Klopp said, “It’s not easy to catch up with the news about Ramsey (I am the director). He is a really great talent. However, he had a very unfortunate start. It’s very unfortunate.”
Liverpool are likely to recommend a loan rather than give him another year. The Sun, a popular British newspaper, said on the 3rd (Korean time), “The Reds will send Ramsey on loan for the next season to develop players.” “This plan reflects Klopp’s will. I stayed on a business trip for the first team,” he explained.
Ramsey is considered the future of Scottish football. He was named Young Player of the Year by the Football Writers Association of Scotland last year and made his A-match debut early.
Alexander-Arnold has been embroiled in controversy this season for his ‘attitude’ due to his slow defensive return, with celebrity football agent Rob Segal saying, “whether it’s a slow return to goal or a lack of play in defense (compared to attacking possession), Liverpool’s number 66 is his starting point every week. I know that there is a high probability of becoming a member. This is the reason for the controversy.” He said he didn’t know what it would have been like if a healthy Ramsey had stayed in the rotation all season.
