Micah Richards has been made to look foolish by Liverpool star Dominik Szoboszlai as his past comments resurface.
Since his arrival, Szoboszlai has already made a good impression on the Anfield faithful.
So far, his energy and creativity in the Liverpool midfield have since him being compared with Reds legend Steven Gerrard.
As a result of Szoboszlai’s flying start to his Liverpool career, Richards has been made to look foolish.
Speaking on The Rest is Football podcast ahead of the 23/24 season, Richards told Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer about the concern he had over Szoboszlai.
The former Manchester City defender said: “Szoboszlai is a good player, I just don’t know if he can deal with the pace of the league. I think he’s going to be a slow burner.”
On Wednesday night, Szoboszlai scored a stunning goal as Liverpool recorded a 3-1 win over Championship side Leicester City in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
After the match, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “Dom was a surprise with how fast he has fit in. It was pretty much from the first minute. Top-class player with a lot of quality. He never stops. He learns a lot from the game.”
Speaking about his goal, Szoboszlai said: “It was very special. I don’t know if it was the best goal, I scored one of my best in the national team and also in Salzburg. But [it was] one of the best for sure.”
Liverpool are back in Premier League action this weekend as they travel to London for a mouth-watering clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening.
