Isaac Mabaya put on another solid show as Liverpool continued to fine tune for the upcoming season.
I didn’t watch the full match but caught the highlights package and have read several reports on Liverpool‘s 0-1 defeat to RB Salzburg.
And everything points to another solid show from a boy who is eligible to play for the Warriors as he was born in the UK to Zimbabwean parents.
At 17 Mabaya looks like a very bright prospect with those around Anfield touting him as the next big thing.
“With Trent Alexander-Arnold rested from the start in Salzburg, it handed 17-year-old Isaac Mabaya another opportunity at right-back.
“Though the likes of Luke Chambers and Bobby Clark have rejoined the under-21s after an initial taste of first-team action, Mabaya has remained with the senior squad due to Ramsay’s absence.
“Against Salzburg, he showed more signs of the tenacity, thrust and end product that could make him an interesting option in the role in the long term,” reports Thisisanfield.com.
