Liverpool fans here in the Tavern are eager to uncover their next academy star, as Melwood continues to produce greats on Merseyside.
Indeed, the Reds have been blessed with some impressive prodigies graduating from their academy in years gone by, as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez are the latest to make it in the first-team. And, it appears as if the club are well on their way to uncovering another future star, as according to reports from ESPN, Rafael Camacho joined first-team training after scoring against Man United in Youth League win.

The 17-year-old was invited to join first-team training on Thursday after his stunning goal against bitter rivals Manchester United in the UEFA Youth League earlier this week. A very welcome sign for our local Liverpudlians here in the Tavern, as they hope that the Portuguese forward can enjoy a better time on Merseyside than fellow countryman Raul Meireles ever did.
Encouragingly, Camacho managed to score the second goal in the Under-19s’ 2-0 win over United, in a game that saw the forward display his class and quality against a tough United defence. Indeed, definitely a positive sign for all parties involved, with the youngster gaining some valuable experience in the first-team ranks, as the club slowly reaps the benefits of his progression.
The Portuguese international looks to be a very exciting prospect for Liverpool fans to look forward to, and to already see him training with the first-team will only increase the excitement. But, one thing that fans may love the most about Camacho’s recent performance is his ability to score against bitter rivals Manchester United.
