Rhian Brewster earned a spot on the bench for the Champions League semi-final return leg against Barcelona last month, and now he’s desperate to find a way to make it into the matchday squad in Madrid.

Jürgen Klopp can name up to 12 substitutes for the bench, but 26 players have traveled to Marbella for the final training before the big game.

Some of the players won’t make the cut, but the 19-year-old Brewster is hoping to be a part of the team that takes on Spurs at Estadio Metropolitano.

“Playing football and being back with the lads is really good. It’s really good to be back among it and training. Who knows, hopefully I’ll be in the squad [for the final],” Brewster told the official site.

“You never know. I hope I can be one of the 12 on the bench.”

Fans are eager to see the young Brewster do well, and whether or not he makes the matchday squad on 1st June, he hopefully has a long and successful Liverpool career ahead of him.

“After the final, I’ll go away and have a bit of time to myself and do the programme they give me,” he continued. “I want to come back as strong as possible for pre-season and hopefully have a great pre-season, then push on from there.”

Brewster has a week to impress the boss, while Liverpool fans have one week left to hold their collective breath and wait to see what destiny has in store for the Reds.
