What does the future hold for Bobby Duncan at Liverpool?

What does the future hold for Bobby Duncan at Liverpool?

Liverpool currently find themselves sitting at the top of the Premier League table after the weekend’s results as Manchester City were beaten by Chelsea.

The Reds will be desperate to build on their current position by maintaining their unbeaten start to the current Premier League campaign. Although, with a vital Champions League clash with Napoli coming up, they’ll be completely focused on completing the task ahead.

Of course, Liverpool and Man City have been in a fierce battle for the Premier League title so far this season, but it appears as if Pep Guardiola has already provided Liverpool with a little gift.

Interestingly, Liverpool signed Manchester City’s youth star Bobby Duncan back in the summer months, as the Reds paid £200,000 for his signature after he stalled on a professional contract at the Etihad.

Manchester City have been known to struggle to hold onto their youngsters over the years having witnessed Jadon Sancho’s departure, and they currently face a problem as Brahim Diaz continues to lean towards a move to Real Madrid. It’s the lack of opportunities that Guardiola provides in the first team ranks that forces the prospects to look elsewhere, with a lot of pressure on the Citizens to win silverware having spent heavily on proven players.

But, Liverpool won’t complain as City may have just handed them their next Robbie Fowler.

The promising forward is the cousin of Anfield legend Steven Gerrard, so supporters will be sure to have high hopes.

He has produced an incredible 12 goals and five assists in 16 appearances in the Under-18 Premier League this season, including a four-goal game against Middlesbrough recently. And, he became the first even England player to score a hat-trick against Brazil, which is quite an achievement.

Robbie Fowler is arguably one of the best players to have ever played for Liverpool Football Club as he produced a whopping 183 goals, including 128 in 266 Premier League games for the Reds. He could provide for his teammates, was a natural finisher and made all the headlines from a young age, which sounds almost identical to one player that Liverpool currently have in their youth ranks, Bobby Duncan.

The Liverpool legend also made great strides on the international stage at a young age as he helped the England Under-18 team win the 1993 European Championship, and was later rewarded with an Under-21 call-up, so Duncan is definitely following in his footsteps on a similar path.
