Kristoffer Peterson: Eager to seize opportunities at Anfield

The Swedish winger joined Liverpool at the age of 16 and has impressed during a recent loan spell with League One side Tranmere.

Peterson made six league appearances for the Rovers during a month-long loan deal and also featured in the second round of the FA Cup as Peterborough beat Tranmere 5-0 at London Road.

Although Peterson is yet to make his first-team debut for the Reds, he remains a central figure in the club's Under-21 campaign and is committed to securing a new contract with the club.

"I am fully focused on Liverpool," Peterson told Fotbolldirekt.se.

"There is nothing else. I have a very positive feeling right now and I feel that I deserve that.

"I have worked extremely hard recently and if I continue to work as hard as I can, I know I will get chances."

Before going on loan to Tranmere, Peterson scored once in his three Under-21 Premier League appearance and despite feeling a regular, the 18-year-old admits he would not turn down another loan move.

Technique

"I feel that I have earned my place for the reserves and when I play I will show the club what I can do," Peterson added.

"But of course, I don't close any doors and I might consider going on loan again."

Peterson acknowledged the value of his time at Prenton Park and admits the physicality of League One football has developed a new aspect to his game.

"It was a good experience," he claimed. "I need to play first-team football and it was cool to play matches that really matter, with a lot of spectators and so on.

"Everyone who watched me play knows that I am good with the ball and can play the nice game.

"But now I have also started to learn the physical part. In League One it is not the technique that matters so much, but the physical game."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
