Conor Bradley is one of the most recent prospects to break through into the first team and to reward his progress, Liverpool signed him up to his first professional contract six days after making his debut against Vfb Stuttgart.

Now in a recent interview with Liverpoolfc.com, the 18-year-old explains how 'unreal' the last week has been for him.

"It has been an unreal week for me, I'm very proud, getting my debut last week and then signing a new contract this week. So, I'll just keep working hard and I'm very proud.

"You can't just dwell on the past. You need to look to the future, keep trying to better yourself and try to work hard and see where that takes you.

"I feel like I've improved massively, I've been listening to the coaches like Pep, just taking loads off them in different ways tactically and stuff like that.

"I just want to stay here as long as I can and keep improving, which is the best thing for me.

"It's my first pre-season so it's been quite hard to get used to but I've enjoyed every minute of it. It's hard but it's good."

With Neco Williams being linked with a move away this summer, Bradley may end up becoming Trent's No.2 next season.

So him training with the first team in Austria is a great way for him to get used to Jurgen Klopp's tactics and to start making connections with the lads.

"Obviously [we] can learn off people like Curt, Neco and Rhys because they've been here a while now. It's good.

"I just want to keep trying to impress the manager and keep showing him what I can do. Obviously I've got Trent and Neco in front of me but I just want to keep battling with them and see where it takes me.

"The intensity and the level is just so much higher. It's harder to keep the ball and stuff like that. It's a much higher intensity but it's good and a good learning experience for me.

"I just pick up from people like Trent, Robbo and Mo – I see how they do stuff off the pitch, the way they eat and what they do in between training sessions and stuff like that.

"Just coming here and seeing stuff like that has been really good and I've really enjoyed it."

Hopefully the young man can be another one of Liverpool's impressive youth prospects who have broken into the first team squad in recent years.
