Gary Ablett believes rising star Daniel Pacheco will continue to shine under the guidance of Rafael Benitez.
The 17-year-old Spanish striker arrived from Barcelona last season and enjoyed a superb debut year as he helped the reserves to a unique treble under the command of Ablett.
The reserve team boss, who watched on television as Pacheco set up a goal for Lucas against Lucerne last week, admitted he has been impressed with the way he has handled the step up to first-team level during pre-season.
Ablett believes he is a player with a bright future.
"Dani is a young lad with a lot of potential," Ablett told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"Last season was his first here with us and he more than played his part in what was an exceptional campaign.
"I have always said our main goal is to get players through to Rafa's first-team squad and it is pleasing to see Daniel doing well in the games he has played in pre-season.
"People have to remember, though, that he is only 17 and not to expect too much too soon, but there is no better man than Rafa to help him to achieve what he wants in the game."
I can see in two years that torres will partnering with nemeth or pacheco (fighting for there place).
