Jurgen Klopp's reaction before Trey Nyoni made history-making appearance vs Southampton is so wholesome

Jurgen Klopp's reaction before Trey Nyoni made history-making appearance vs Southampton is so wholesome

Trey Nyoni became Liverpool's youngest player to appear in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.

At the age of 16 years and 243 days, Trey Nyoni has made history by becoming Liverpool's youngest ever player to appear in the FA Cup.

Nyoni, who was born four days before Fernando Torres signed for Liverpool in 2007, signed for the Reds in September from Championship side Leicester City.

Shortly after being promoted to the under-21s in early November, the teenager received a call-up to Jurgen Klopp's squad for their Premier League game against Brentford.

And after months of waiting, Nyoni made history on Wednesday, when he replaced Harvey Elliott in the 78th minute of Liverpool's 3-0 win against Southampton.

As you can see from the footage below, Klopp was clearly delighted to give the youngster his first-team bow as Anfield applauded another product of their academy system.

It has been a whirlwind few days for a number of Liverpool's talented youngsters.

At the weekend, Klopp gave five academy products – Conor Bradley, Bobby Clark, James McConnell, Jayden Danns and Jarell Quansah – a chance to shine in their Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea.

And on Wednesday night, 18-year-old Lewis Koumas scored his first-ever goal for the club on his first-team debut, while Jayden Danns bagged a brace on his third senior appearance.

Speaking after the full-time whistle, Klopp was full of praise for his youthful side.

“It was an incredible game," he said. "Southampton are a top side, our midfield press was not quite right. For 15 minutes we were all over and Saints could have scored but we found our way, scored a wonderful goal.

“Koumas is a fantastic finisher, Dannsy we knew he’s a good finisher too. He’s really calm in that situation - it’s proof of his nose, he’s in the right spot, he arrives there."

Klopp added: “The whole event was pretty special. We don’t always want to make it about the horribly difficult situation but for some reason there’s a real positive mood about it all anyway.”

Jayden Danns, who netted a second-half brace against Russell Martin's side, also opened up on his "dream" start to life in the first-team.

"I’ve supported the club since birth so to score at the Kop end it’s unreal," he said. “The keeper come close and you just have to dink it. The second one I lost all composure, just went sliding.

“My dad said he was crying when I made my debut so I don’t know what he’s doing when I’ve scored."
