Jurgen Klopp has revealed Rhys Williams could not hide his happiness at full time after Liverpool’s victory over Atalanta yesterday.
The 19-year-old was in the Reds’ starting line up for the Champions League tie against the Serie A club. He managed to help his side to celebrate a 5 – 0 win over the rivals.
And speaking about the young defender, Klopp has shared his excitement, saying:
“We can start with Rhys – exceptional. I cannot imagine being 19 years old and playing my second professional football game in the Champions League against [Atalanta striker Duvan] Zapata, it’s incredible! I would have been nervous like hell, but the boy was not.
“It was really nice to see. I couldn’t be more happy for Rhys. You should see him in the dressing room, you’d need something special to get the smile off his face! It’s good to see.”
