'A Really Proud Moment' - Curtis Jones On Making 50 Liverpool Appearances

Liverpool's outstanding young midfielder Curtis Jones has spoken about how proud he was to make 50 appearances under Jurgen Klopp for the club he joined as a boy.

The 20 year old brought up the half century in the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory versus Norwich at Carrow Road last month in another fine performance from the youngster.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website, the England under 21 international spoke about how proud he is of what he has achieved so far at Anfield.

"It was huge, a really proud moment. I didn’t even know Norwich was going to be my 50th game. It’s not like I keep count of games. 

"Each game just comes along and I’m not thinking ‘this is my 23rd game’ or whatever."

"I didn’t really set myself any targets when I started my journey, it was more me just being around the squad. That was huge."

"All my life I have dreamed of playing for the club so to even have made one appearance would, for me, have been amazing. But 50? It’s mad, unbelievable."

Jones used the Norwich game as a platform to force himself into Klopp's starting XI following that performance up with a brilliant goal at Brentford and a man of the match performance in the 5-1 demolition of Porto.

After a slight injury problem on international duty with England's young lions, Jones bounced back against Andorra with a brilliant assist for Emile Smith Rowe's goal.

The midfielder will now be hoping to retain his place as the Reds travel to Watford at the weekend in Premier League action.
