Liverpool’s new signing Calvin Ramsay says fans can expect to see him displaying attacking talents from right-back, although he also says he can play in a range of positions across the pitch.
The 18-year-old has arrived in a £4.2m deal from Aberdeen and will provide some back-up to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right back.
The teenager has made just 40 first team appearances in his career so far, but has quickly sprung to prominence, winning the Football Writers’ Young Player of the Year award in Scotland.
While he is unlikely to crack the first team for a while at Liverpool, he will have Reds fans excited by promising plenty of attacking intent from full-back.
‘Obviously I’m a right-back, pretty attacking, I like to attack,’ he told Liverpool’s official website. ‘I’m OK defensively as well but my main attribute is attacking – I can put good crosses in, I like to get shots away, both feet, cutting inside, going down the line, linking up with my winger.
‘But just mainly I like to work hard, work hard for the team, put in a shift. I’ll try to do my best for the club and I’m looking forward to it.’
The Scot sounds like he could be a very useful squad player to have around, given that he is confident he can play in midfield as well as his most usual position on the right of defence.
‘I think I’m quite versatile as well, I can play in a few different positions,’ he said. ‘I started off in midfield, coming through [the] Aberdeen youth academy, and then I got moved out to right-back.
‘My first game was against Chelsea in a tournament, so it was a difficult game to go right-back for. But I did well and I’ve played right-back ever since. I can play a few positions, I think I’m quite composed on the ball, can find a pass, get shots away. So, I can play centre-mid, right-back, right-wing – anywhere really.’
