Anfield favourite Jamie Carragher tells striker to leave Liverpool

Jerome Sinclair

Jerome SinclairLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher has advised youngster Jerome Sinclair to leave the Merseyside club on-loan for his development.

The 18-year-old scored a wonder goal during the Reds Under 21’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday night. Harry Wilson converted from the spot kick after Sinclair was brought down inside the box.

The former Liverpool defender believes a loan-move till the end of this campaign will give the teenage striker the much needed confidence to prepare himself for the next season’s pre-season tour, where he can hope to be a part of Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

“It was an outstanding finish. He left the defender for dead and then showed great pace and composure on his weaker foot,” Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

“Another member of this squad, Sheyi Ojo, has gone to Wigan on loan. That’s the next step for Jerome. I think it’s a big ask for Jerome to go straight into the Liverpool first team. There are enough strikers there at the moment.

“He needs to go out on loan, get games under his belt and prove himself in men’s football. Hopefully at the start of next season he will go on the pre-season tour and show Brendan Rodgers what he can do,” he added.
