Liverpool shared an early glimpse of loanee Ozan Kabak’s ability on the ball when they shared a clip from training yesterday, the Turkish star got the better of Trent Alexander-Arnold a couple of times.
In a 30-second clip of a passing rondo, Kabak kicked off the proceedings by leaving the right-back outstretched after a pass from Jordan Henderson, as Trent partnered Andy Robertson in the middle.
That wasn’t all from the 20-year-old talent that Liverpool have loaned for just a guaranteed fee of £1m in a deal that includes an £18m option though…
The ball shuttled back around to Kabak about 15 seconds later, but this time centre-back Kabak got around Trent’s pressure by nutmegging the star with a lovely backheel flick.
That sparked some serious reaction from Liverpool’s stars, with Robertson heard shouting before the camera focused in on Kabak, who let off a cheeky smile and a point to the lens.

Liverpool fans and their coaching staff should certainly be encouraged after seeing one of their centre-back’s capable of such skilful play, it’s the kind of fresh outlook the side need amid their current woes.
