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."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
