Ward: Ben Woodburn Can Play in Various Positions
Liverpool’s third goalkeeper, Danny Ward judging his teammate Ben Woodburn can play in three different positions at once.
The reason when played at the club level for the U-23 season yesterday and the 17-year-old Wales youth team really shows the ability to play very extraordinary especially when asked for rotation. Even his name became more famous after scoring one goal in the 2018 World Cup qualifying in a 1-0 victory over Austria.
Thus the future fans of the Reds need not worry because Jurgen Klopp has a fantastic player in the main squad, but Ward who last season when loaned to Huddersfield Town admitted not knowing the right place for Ben.
“He plays in various positions and and you can see him from the way he plays a good number of positions,” Danny Ward told the media.
“I do not think I know what position he should occupy in the future. He can play as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder, on the wing or even behind the striker. And he looks really familiar with all the positions he plays.
“Tactically, he is very, very shining for the figure of a 17-year-old footballer.
“But obviously he has a quality that can be seen by everyone and he has brought it when playing in the international game.”
While Ward, who is only a coat of Simon Mignolet and also Loris Karius admitted that he was impressed with the mentality of players who will compete aged 18 years on 15 October.
Even the 24-year-old goal keeper hopes that Woodburn will be a top football player in the future.
“The important thing is that he does not dissolve all the praises of many media,” Ward continued.
“I think he will never be like that because he’s a humble player. He just has to keep learning from the manager and the players we have who can be role models for him.
“Hopefully he can be a top player, a world-class player. And it would be great if he could be one of the world’s best players. “
