Ryan Brewster is happy to have changed medals at the Games as he set a $ 23.5 million record from Sheffield United to Liverpool.
Brewster was part of Liverpool’s successful Champions League and European Super Cup squads last year, and already has more gangs than many players have handled in their careers.
Yet he turned his back on the opportunity to win more medals with the Reds for more game time with the Blade.
The 20-year-old did not want to be a player at Liverpool, who are playing in a strange cup tie after scoring 11 goals in 22 matches at Swansea last season.
A Premier League game will be played at Anfield on Saturday night. When he returned to the former club he made the right choice.
“I could have stayed, I was on contract, but now that I’m in my career, I need game time,” said Stryker, who has appeared just four times for Liverpool.
“It was a great opportunity, and as it turned out, I thought it would be great to let it pass.
“For me, playing week after week is no substitute. Once you get the taste of playing regularly, you want to continue it.
“I had a good experience at Swansea and I did not want to return as a squad player. I’ve got some momentum and want to move my career forward.
“It simply came to our notice then. I had to give myself the best chance to play. I talked to the boss in Liverpool and he agreed with me, so when this opportunity came I could not turn it down. ”
Brewster, who made his debut for Blade as a Fulham replacement last Sunday, has learned a lot from players like Jurgen Klopp, his coaching staff, Jordan Henderson and James Milner.
He claims to have taught players how hard they have to work to win trophies, no matter how talented they are.
“Being with the group every day and seeing how the winners behave is just a good experience for me,” he said.
“I know how hard it takes to win a league. I saw the benchmark, so that only I could benefit.
“Being on the bench, you feel the atmosphere of this opportunity, to first understand what happened after winning the Champions League final, what it means for the group and what effort it took to get there.
“Witnessing was a wonderful experience.”
Chris Wilder is confident that Brewster will repay his fee. The former Chelsea Academy player scored consistently when he reached the age limit.
He won the Golden Boot at the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, scoring eight goals in England’s victory, representing the Three Lions from Under-16 to Under-21.
Despite his pedigree, Wilder claims that Brewster has one thing to prove when he returns to Anfield.
“I think everyone always has something to prove,” Blades Boss said. “Does he want to go back to Liverpool and do well? He does it 100 percent, for himself and the club.
“Spotlight has always helped him to excel as a young player – and with the fees we paid him – to live up to those expectations.
“It’s a step up, but he knows it and understands the challenge.”
