'Jarell Quansah has a bright future' - Andy Robertson

Published on: 18 September 2023

Liverpool's Scottish defender, Andy Robertson, has disclosed that English-born Ghanaian defender Jarell Quansah has a bright future ahead of him.

The 20-year-old put in a fantastic shift as a replacement for the suspended van Dijk on Saturday, as the Reds came from a goal down to beat Wolves 3-1 in round five of the Premier League.

Robertson praised Quansah for his excellent display for a team like Liverpool against a tough opponent like Wolves.

“He has got a bright future ahead of him but the here and now is pretty good as well and for him to step in at a really tough place to come, a really tough team to play against, and to put in that performance, particularly in the second half, then fair play to him for his first start," Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com

Jarell Quansah, born to Ghanaian parents in England, is still qualified to play for Ghana despite having previously represented England's U16 and U19 teams.

Quansah made his way up the ranks at Liverpool and led the club's U18 team to the FA Youth Cup final in 2021 as captain. He has also served as captain for the U19 and U21 squads.

In May, he was granted a contract extension that ensures he will be playing at Anfield until 2028.
