Loads of Liverpool fans have heaped praise on midfielder Pedro Chirivella, echoing the words of U23s’ head coach Neil Critchley.
The 22-year-old has impressed in recent weeks with his performances in the FA Cup in both legs against Shrewsbury Town as they advanced into the fifth round of the competition. Critchley told the club’s official website that the youngster was “incredible”, plays like a “real leader” and he is the first on the training ground, lauding his commitment to the cause.
Chirivella captained his side in the Carabao Cup quarter-final during his side’s 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Villa Park in December while the first team took part in the Club World Cup. Indeed, supporters were delighted for the Spaniard and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described him as a “forgotten hero”, while another said that he was “the future”.
