Liverpool have recalled 19-year old winger Ryan Kent from his loan spell at League One side Coventry City in a bid to complement an injury-hit squad as the club challenge for honours on four major fronts namely the Premier League, FA Cup, Capital One Cup and the UEFA Europa League.
According to the Coventry Telegraph, Kent is hoping he can force his way into new manager Jurgen Klopp’s thinking ahead of Liverpool’s FA Cup third round trip to League Two side Exeter City on Friday. Off course he needs no registration and no work permit, hence there is a good chance he could fixture against Exeter city tomorrow as Klopp is likely to rest some more senior players.
Speaking on his recall after his last game for Coventry City, Ryan Kent said: “There are a number of injuries and a lot of games so that’s why I’ve been recalled.”
“Hopefully I can make my debut against Exeter in the FA Cup but I’ll have to see what happens.” he concluded.
Ryan Kent enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at Coventry City, who also have former Reds player Joe Cole in their ranks, making 17 appearances and scoring once in the league. The oldham-born man was also called into the England U20 squad, where he made five appearances.
Liverpool have had to deal with a lot of injuries to key players such as captain Jordan Henderson, vice-captain James Milner, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings. This makes it all the more important for the club to dip their hands into the pocket for quality acquisitions during the transfer window if they are to fulfil their ambitions for the current season rather than pin hopes on impressive youngsters, who lack the required experience to perform consistently at the highest level.
