I’ve been here since I started my scholarship, so almost two years now.
Best thing about being at Rovers:
The fact that the games we play are competitive and we get to play some of the best Academies in the country.
Club you support:
I’m a Tranmere Rovers supporter. I live on the Wirral, so that’s where it comes from.

I have quite a lot here – Jalil (Saadi) and Enzo (Boyomo) are the two I get on with the best.

Philippe Coutinho. He has tight control and is technically very good.

I scored the winning goal in a final against Juventus when I was at Liverpool.
Hopes for the season:
I want to get as many goals and assists as I can and also to play for the Under-23s.
