      Juanma (Juan Manuel García Rey) Player Thread

      Could this lad be Milners eventual replacement at LB?  He took a while to settle but he's looked really good in recent games.  He gets up and down with decent pace, has a great left foot on him, puts in some beautiful crosses and has a couple of assists.  Unlike Moreno he actual was a defender but a CB so hopefully the defending bit shouldn't be too hard to coach into the role.


      Name: Juanma

      Position: Defender

      D.O.B: 18/01/1997

      Town Of Birth: Alicante, Spain

      Profile

      Juanma Garcia arrived at Liverpool just before the start of the 2016-17 season after previously being on the books of Barcelona.

      The left-back joined the Academy following a successful trial and he will begin life with the Reds in Michael Beale’s U23 squad.

      Known simply as Juanma,  the defender started life at Elche before Barcelona snapped him up at the age of 11 in 2009.

      Juanma has represented Spain at U15, U16, U17 and U19 level.

      He has a big pre-season coming up IMO. If he can show Klopp that he has the necessary ability then we may finally see the back of Moreno.

      Agreed mate.  He's not exactly a kid at 20 but still young enough to develop if he has a good attitude and wants to learn.

      Didn't Mick Beale rave about him in his last interview? Pity the kid has picked up an injury.

      He did mate and it is but I don't think it's anything serious.
