– I played against his father!

Jayden Danns is a name that should be remembered in the future. The 18-year-old striker made his Liverpool first-team debut last night when Jürgen Klopp sent him on in the 89th minute.

Seconds later, the youngster played an important role when he played through Cody Gakpo just before Harvey Elliott’s 4-1 goal.

After the end of the match, we witnessed a nice moment between Danns, Klopp and Rob Edwards. The latter has played against his father, Neil Danns.

– I played against his father, was the Luton manager’s message when he approached the Liverpool duo.

Neil Danns, who was part of Liverpool’s academy in the 90s, played well over 500 games in the English division system from 2000 to 2023. He visited Birmingham, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bolton, among others. Rob Edwards, on the other hand, has 100 games for Wolverhampton and 15 international games for Wales.

One of the matches the 42-year-old is targeting is the Championship match between Birmingham and Wolverhampton in 2006. Then the duo came in from the bench for each team.

Thanks Klopp

Jayden Danns has quickly moved up the ladder at Liverpool this season. He started the season in the U18 team, before he was quickly moved up to the U21 in the autumn. Now he has also managed to make his debut in the first team.

– I am so happy for all the boys who came in and played. Dannsy must have said “thank you boss” 50 times to me. I am very happy to give him such an opportunity, because he deserves it, Klopp said after the match.

Yesterday we got a small glimpse of the striker, who has 17 goals in 16 games for age groups this season. There may also be more opportunities beyond the spring, especially considering the injury situation in the first team.
