Harry Wilson Discusses Return to Anfield

The 21-year-old is hoping to make his return to Liverpool after a year on loan at Derby.

It’s been a good weekend for the Reds and all Reds-associated acts. Divock Origi and the utter shambles of the Merseyside Derby were one thing, but there was also serious action in the Championship as Harry Wilson continues to make a very convincing case for his return to Anfield next season. If you’ve somehow managed to miss the goal, here it is in all its glory:

Wilson also spoke with the People about his future after Derby.

“I’ll be looking at Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Joe [Gomez] today hoping I’m playing with them next season,” Wilson said. “Its nice to see young lads doing well but when it’s your mates you have grown up and played with it makes it even better.”

Wilson won the Liverpool Academy Players’ Player of the Year last season. Alexander-Arnold won the award the year before. Alexander-Arnold has certainly made his mark for Liverpool this season, and Wilson has nothing but praise to heap on his friends.

“Trent had an amazing year last year playing in so many games and then a Champions League final before going to the World Cup,” Wilson added. “And if Joe hadn’t been injured towards the end of the season he would have done the same I’m sure. It’s great to see them doing so well.”

And while Wilson is having another excellent loan spell despite a muscle injury early into the season, he knows trying to make a similar impact at Liverpool will be difficult.

“When you look at the attacking talent at Liverpool it’s awesome, but you’ve got to be confident in your ability otherwise you have no chance. It’s always going to be difficult to break in to a team with big stars like Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane. But I trained with those guys for over a year before I went on loan to Hull in January and it raised my game.

”When you get a chance on loan you have to shine so when I do go back I’ll be in better shape to impress the manager.”
