A compilation of Jarell Quansah’s performance for Liverpool is going viral after the Reds’ to 2-1 Europa League defeat to Royal Union Saint-Gilloise.
The 20-year-old defender was filling in for the injured Joel Matip at centre-back, who suffered an unfortunate knee injury against Fulham earlier this month.
Quansah took little time to make his mark, controlling the ball brilliantly in the 18-yard-box from the corner before smashing the ball home to level the scores.
Unfortunately, the youngster’s goal was not enough to seal the victory, with goals from Mohamed Amoura and Cameron Puertas stealing all three points for the Belgian side.
However, Liverpool still came away group winners, as they march on to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
A compilation of Quansah’s performance has since emerged which showcases the Englishman’s ability. You can watch it below.
Speaking after the defeat, the youngster offered his condolences to Matip for his injury, but admitted he wanted to “get over him anyway”.
“At the start of the season when I stayed and didn’t go on loan, I thought ‘I want to play in these games’,” Quansah told LFCTV, having spent six months out on loan in League One with Bristol Rovers last season.
“Obviously it’s a shame what happened to Joel and my condolences to him, but my idea was to try and get over him anyway and try and be a starting centre-back in the Premier League. Hopefully more opportunities come, I’m just really trying to push on and be the best centre-back I can.”
