Sheyi Ojo scored a wonder goal to clinch Liverpool win over Exeter

By Harvey Byrne

Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has paid tribute to the influence of Jurgen Klopp and has bowed to repay his faith in the upcoming season.

The youngster recalled from his loan spell at Wolves in January after showing promising signs with two goals and three assists in the Championship after starring in 17 encounters.

On his return to Anfield the 19-year-old winger was swiftly handed his debut in an FA Cup tie against Exeter as the Reds juggled a mounting injury list and a busy fixture schedule.

He bagged his first and only Liverpool goal to date in a 3-0 replay victory against Exeter and he went on to star in another nine matches for the Reds as the side focussed on the Europa League final.

“I think I’m just learning from every experience and that will help me in the future,” said Ojo to the official Liverpool website.

“Jurgen is a great manager and I’m happy to be working under him. I’m just trying to learn off him and the first-team staff and even the academy staff.

“He’s given me loads of confidence ever since I’ve come back from Wolves and I’m grateful for that. Hopefully I can keep repaying him with good performances.”

Ojo is quickly emerging as a fans’ favourite due to his technical ability and dribbling in one v one s

Fellow wide-man Jordan Ibe left Liverpool for Borunemouth this week, which could result in more opportunities for Ojo to impress during the 2016-17 season.

The youngster is currently with the England Under-19 squad in Germany where the Three Lions youth side have made the semi-finals of the Under-19’s Championships.
