Liverpool: Fans disagree with Neco Williams’ nomination for 2020 Golden Boy award

Liverpool: Fans disagree with Neco Williams’ nomination for 2020 Golden Boy award - Liverpool News

Liverpool defender Neco Williams has been nominated for the 2020 Golden Boy award, but plenty of Reds fans feel that he should not have made the 40-man longlist.

The Welsh teenager is among six current Premier League players to be nominated but is the only one from the English champions, with the likes of Curtis Jones being overlooked despite the midfielder also making an impact for the first team in recent months. As per liverpoolfc.com, the initial 40-player list will be halved next month.

Williams, who made his senior Wales debut and scored his first international goal this month, broke into Liverpool’s first team last season and has made 12 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side. However, despite some impressive displays, he struggled in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal last month and was substituted at half-time on the night of his first Premier League start against Brighton.

Does Neco Williams deserve his place on the Golden Boy nominees list?

Yes

Yes

No

These Reds fans on Twitter feel that the 19-year-old’s Golden Boy nomination came too soon, with the teenager still an inexperienced backup to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back. One Kopite even said that the Welsh youngster has looked “awful” whenever he has played.
