      We didn't buy them, all of those were a product of our academy. My point is none of the youngsters we actually bought from outside made the grade.

      Doesn't mean you stop trying though does it mate?

      Absolutely, these kids come into the academy and we have to give them time to develop, you only need one every so often to come through to make it worthwhile.

      We have reportedly paid 850k for this kid, even of it doesn't work out its worth that gamble, if it does and he becomes the player they think he has the potential to then it could save us millions in the future and the annoyance of missing out.

      Liverpool secured the exciting capture of Portugal U19 international Joao Carlos Teixeira from Sporting Lisbon in February 2012.

      The midfield playmaker has already scored in front of the Kop against the Reds in the NextGen Series, and he was a pivotal performer for Sporting in the two group games.

      Teixeira will start life with the Reds in Rodolfo Borrell's reserve team squad and will be based at the Academy.

      His style has been compared to legendary Portugese ace Deco, and he came through the renowed Sporting Lisbon Academy.

      His performances in the NextGen Series saw him train with the Sporting Lisbon first team squad, before a move to Merseyside came about.

      He is very much seen as a player for the future and Liverpool are delighted to have him on board.

      He's 19 now, don't think he qualifies to play as it is the U-19 European Championship. Correct me if I'm wrong or if there's a rule in there somewhere, but I think all players have to be under 19 years of age.

      And I'm pretty sure he's training.

      Players born after 1 January 1993 will be eligible to participate in this competition.

      Ah that makes more sense then. So he is eligible to play then, I'm curious as to why he's not there. Maybe he was injured when the squad was selected?

      No. I recall reading somewhere it's because of A) too much time missed due to injury this spring and B) Portugal is loaded with talent in midfield.

      Joao Carlos Teixeira – The Next Liverpool Star?

      ADAM WOODHOUSE AUGUST 27, 2012


      Sporting Lisbon’s youth academy has supplied some of Europe’s most talented footballers over the years, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Figo and Nani all graduating from the Estádio José Alvalade.

      In more recent times the Lisbon club have relied on the transfer market to bolster their squad, but last season they found yet another talented midfielder progressing through their famed academy.

      Joao Carlos Teixeira – who turned 19 in January – put in a string of impressive performances for the Portuguese club in the NextGen series, including a goal-scoring performance at Anfield as Sporting’s youngsters outclassed their Liverpool counterparts to win 3-0.

      Teixeira – who has been compared to former Chelsea midfielder Deco – completed a quick one-two with his teammate, before confidently and clinically converting the ball into the bottom left corner of the Kop goal (see clip, @ 1min 20secs).


      That performance impressed Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish – who was keeping a close eye on the tournament – so much that he sent the club’s scouts to watch the exciting playmaker on a more regular basis.

      His outstanding displays in that tournament saw him invited to train with the Sporting first team, but he did not manage to make his debut for the club where he had developed so much as a player.

      In February this year, Liverpool announced the signing of Joao Carlos – as he is more informally known – for a fee in the region of £850,000.

      Despite their reluctance to lose one of the most talented players to come through their ranks in recent years, Sporting’s difficult financial situation meant that they had to lose Teixeira for a small fee.

      He had a difficult start to his Liverpool career, having to sit out the rest of the 2011-12 season with a back injury, but was fit to make his debut in July as the under-18’s beat Exeter 8-1 in a friendly. Just five days later and the dynamic midfielder made his debut for the reserve team - again a winning start, helping the Reds to a 4-2 win over the USA under-20’s.

      By being educated in a youth system which insists on getting the ball down and passing to feet, Teixeira will fit perfectly into what Brendan Rodgers and Rodolfo Borrell are trying to do on Merseyside. However, with the recent acquisition of midfielder Joe Allen and the development of Suso, the Reds may look at the loan market to give Joao Carlos the opportunity to progress his game at a more competitive level in English football.

      For the time-being the Portuguese under-19 international will continue to develop in Liverpool’s reserve side, but with new manager Rodgers already showing that he is willing to play youngsters if they are good enough, it may not be long before Teixeira is involved with the first team.

      I'd forgotten about this lad.

      A loan could be a good option to a team that plays passing football.

      Been on the bench but not played.
      Apparently had a serious back injury shortly after he joined us.
      Must be frustrating for the young lad.

      Liverpool career
      Liverpool agreed a deal, worth a reported £1,000,000 with Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon for their highly-rated midfield playmaker Teixeira in the 2012 January transfer window. Teixeira had impressed Liverpool scouts whilst playing for Lisbon during the 2011-12 NextGen Series, during which he netted against the Reds in Lisbon's 3-0 victory on Merseyside.
      Although Teixeira never managed to make a first-team appearance for Lisbon, the signing was greeted with some excitement by the Liverpool faithful, following comparisons between Teixeira and former Barcelona and Chelsea star Deco.

      After signing with Liverpool, Teixeira had to sit out the rest of the 2011-12 season due to a back injury. He made his debut for Liverpool in an Under 18s 8-1 friendly victory over Exeter on 14 July 2012, and then made his Reserve team debut on 19 July in the side's 4-2 friendly victory over the USA under 20s. He made his long-awaited competitive debut for the Under 21s on 1 October 2012, coming on for the last ten minutes of a 3-0 victory over Fulham. On 5 November 2012, Teixeira came on for the U21s against Wolverhampton Wanderers at half-time with the Reds trailing 1-0. He made a big impact on the match and claimed an assist for Krisztian Adorjan to make the score 3-1. He then scored his first goal in a red shirt to make it 4-1, with the final score 5-1 to Liverpool.
