The Reds have brought through some exciting young players this season, with Ibe the latest to be given a chance in the first-team under Brendan Rodgers, who has also quickly helped Sterling become one of the top attacking players in the Premier League.

Werner thinks this can continue, saying: “I think you know that we’ve made a significant investment in the Academy and I got a report from John and Mike Gordon (FSG).

“I know they met with Alex Inglethorpe (Academy Director) who I think is the right man to run the Academy.

“At Liverpool if you are a fine player you will get the opportunity to play.

“I think the most recent example of Jordon Ibe is a very positive one for people who are looking at what is happening at Liverpool’s Academy.”
