Liverpool’s ‘next Odegaard’ on relationship with Gerrard
If you’re a young midfielder learning the game at a top club, there can’t be many better teachers than Steven Gerrard.
That was the experience Edvard Tagseth enjoyed during his time with Liverpool, as he explained on the latest Academy Show from Blood Red.
“It was a really amazing experience and something that I will never forget. It was an honour to have him as a coach and everyone else thought the same,” he said.
The Norwegian knew his chances of first team football would be limited at Anfield, so he returned to his homeland. He has appeared in 22 of Rosenborg’s 25 matches this season, so the decision has clearly paid off. You can read more about his experiences of working with Gerrard here.
Impact of FSG’s potential £6bn deal
There have been a lot of news stories recently about John W. Henry’s Fenway Sports Group considering a possible merger with RedBall Acquisitions.
RedBall would acquire 25 per cent of the new company in a move which would see it listed on the stock market with a value of over £6bn.
But what would this mean for Liverpool? Further extensions to Anfield, or a deeper well of transfer funds for Jurgen Klopp to call upon?
Dave Powell has taken an in-depth look at what the merger could mean for the Reds in the future, with comparisons with both football clubs and American teams in other sports.
Harvey Elliott is already impressing at Blackburn
Harvey Elliott has already made nine appearances for Liverpool, which is impressive work for a 17-year-old. However, in order to continue his development with regular senior football he will be spending the 2020/21 season on loan with Blackburn Rovers.
And the early signs are very positive, as the young man scored and assisted a goal in Rovers’ 4-0 victory at Coventry City on Saturday, in just his second match for the club.
Kristan Heneage has analysed his performance in both that match and his debut which occurred at Watford in midweek.
Elliott has started very well and will be looking to make his first appearance at Ewood Park against Reading tomorrow night.
