Paul Glatzel signs new Liverpool contract
Paul Glatzel has signed a new contract with Liverpool, the club have confirmed.
The 18-year-old striker suffered a knee injury in Liverpool’s pre-season clash with Tranmere Rovers in mid-July, and he’s currently undergoing a long rehabilitation process.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Glatzel 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 and they know I’ll come back from my injury stronger and I’ll be ready when I’m back on the pitch.”
The young forward bagged 28 goals for the U-18 side during the 2018/19 season, and had joined the first team for the pre-season before he got injured.
With Bobby Duncan gone and Rhian Brewster in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans already, there should be a lot more room for Glatzel to grow in the next few years.
