‘Brilliant’… Glen Johnson says Liverpool have a 20-year-old youngster who is ‘going to be world class’



Liverpool have so many talented young players at the moment.

The likes of Bobby Clark, Harvey Elliott and Jarell Quansah all look like stars of the future.

However, perhaps the most impressive young player at Liverpool right now is Conor Bradley.

The young right-back has been utterly brilliant for the Reds in recent times as he’s filled in for Trent Alexander-Arnold brilliantly.

Bradley has performed fantastically at right-back in recent weeks In some massive games against the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea.

Speaking to Squawka, Glen Johnson has ben full of praise for Bradley, claiming that he’s going to be a world-class player if he can keep up his current level of form.

Conor Bradley can be world-class

Johnson shared his verdict on the youngster.

“Yeah, again, obviously Conor has been fantastic. He’s been brilliant. Again it’s a bit early and harsh to judge him against everybody else because three months ago he hadn’t played a game of football,” Johnson said.

“So, I think it’s a bit harsh now. Put it this way, if this is his standard and he can maintain this, then he’s going to be world class.

“But sometimes the first season is always easy because you’re playing on cloud nine, you’re living the dream, there’s no negatives at all, and you’re loving life. But it’s when you get knocked back and get a few injuries, and that’s how you bounce back and decide whether you’re going to have a 20-year career or a two-year career.

“But at the moment, he’s certainly playing fantastic, and like you say, him in the team, I think they do look more balanced.

“He’s probably a more natural right-back than Trent. Obviously Trent’s world class, of course, but, with his ability, he can play almost anywhere.

“But with Conor, he looks a more natural right-back. He’s quick, strong, a good defender. So right now you can’t fault him.”

On his way

Johnson is spot on, if Bradley keeps up this level of performance, it won’t be long before we start calling in world-class.

Trent Alexander-Arnold burst onto the scene in very similar fashion a few years ago, and it didn’t take him long to be considered among the very best players in the world.

Bradley looks every bit a Liverpool player, and while it is early days, it does look as though the Reds may have another superstar on their hands here.
