Jürgen Klopp is impressed with the way Ki-Jana Hoever Monday night made his debut at Liverpool in the lost FA Cup match with Wolverhampton Wanderers (2-1). The only sixteen-year-old Dutchman fell already after six minutes in the ‘Reds’.
How far took central back to the place of Dejan Lovren, the defender was soon in the race, injured, touched on his hamstring – and is therefore the youngest Liverpool debutant ever in the FA Cup.
“Ki-Jana has just done well,” concludes Klopp on the site of Liverpool. “Normally you want with a sixteen year old boy, wait until he is ready for it, but we had little choice.”
