For the November international break, Liverpool took the unusual step of recalling loanees Ryan Kent and Sheyi Ojo, giving the talented youngsters a chance to spend two weeks training with new manager Jürgen Klopp and the remaining first team players at Melwood.
They were joined by another promising youngster, Spanish winger Sergi Canos. The 18-year-old has been playing for Brentford this season, making ten appearances so far for the fifth-place side in the Championship. With his time back at the club nearly done, Canos was buzzing about the opportunity.
"It feels amazing because I have met the new manager and saw how he works and how he feels about the game," said Canos, who is set to report back to Brentford this week. "It was amazing to work with him. The club is amazing because Liverpool gives opportunities for all the young players."
Liverpool signed the youngster out of Barcelona's academy in 2013, exploiting the fact that they could offer him a contract at a younger age than Spanish law allows. After impressing at the youth levels for Liverpool, Brentford has been his first loan spell, giving the youngster a taste of first team football.
While he hasn't been a guaranteed starter, he has seen regular action off the bench for one of the better sides in the Championship, which is a solid start for Canos. His half-season loan will see him return to Anfield again in January, but the expectation is that the club will look to send him out again quickly.
"I'm enjoying it a lot," Canos added when asked about his time so far with Bradford. "To get the chance to play at the Championshp level is unbelievable. I've been there for three months now and I feel like a new player, which is really good for me."
