One of Liverpool's scouse lads is Curtis Jones. He is one of the most recent homegrown talents to break into the Liverpool first team with another Scouser, Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Jones played a little part in the Premier League winning season but last season he really started to gain Jurgen Klopp's trust and he even was starting some games.
The 20-year-old has come a long way and he will be hoping to be given a more senior role next season.
In a recent interview with Liverpoolfc.com, Jones had this to say on how last season went for him and the team:
"There was a spell where I was in the team all the time – it was Premier League, then Champions League and back to the Premier League. The experience was great, I felt good and it took me to the next step."
Jones also reminisced on his time in the Liverpool academy: “In the Academy days I was always a kid that was an attacking player and my first thought was always to attack, attack and goals. But the higher you get, things change a touch.” said Jones.
“You've still got the thought about goals and assists and, I wouldn't say [being] a star player, but a man that tries to win games and stuff. But another side of my game has come in now the defensive part of my game, and I'm doing well in that as well.”
Curtis has been with the first team squad in Austria and now Evian for pre season and he's said how that has helped him even more in preparation for next season:
"It's been hard, it's been tough but good. But when I was off I think this has been the most that I've trained. I know what the season needs from me and know what the team needs, the fans need, the staff need. I'm prepared for that.
"This season coming up, I'd definitely say that the boys are fully focused on getting back to the top of their game and winning games and trophies again."
A great mentality from the young lad. Liverpool fans will be hoping to see a lot more of him in the future!
