London-born Ejaria, who moved to Merseyside from boyhood club Arsenal in 2014, made an instant impact on Klopp shortly after the manager's arrival last October.
One of the German's first acts as Liverpool boss was to watch Ejaria score the winner for the under-18s at the Academy in Kirkby.
“Obviously first impressions are important and it was a great feeling to be able to play in front of him,” said Ejaria.
“It's exciting because he's new in and everyone is trying to make a first impression on him and trying to get our way up to Melwood. Knowing that he was watching us was a great feeling.”
Ejaria was also among a group of youngsters who travelled with Klopp and several senior members of the Liverpool squad for warm weather training in Tenerife in March.
The teenager can play both on the flank and through the middle, and his penchant for hard work and pressing has clearly caught Klopp's attention. - LiverpoolEcho
Very impressive start for the young man. Hope to see him more involved in the first team as the year goes on.
