Rhian Brewster returns to former club Liverpool this weekend for this first time since joining Sheffield United in the transfer window. The Blades striker has plenty of fond memories from his time at Anfield, including the footballing education he received when training with the first-team. Speaking ahead of the game, the Blades striker revealed his high work ethic has a lot to do with seeing his former Liverpool teammates in training every day.
Rhian Brewster said “Not one person slacks off and I’ll always remember that. Even if I feel I want to. For example James Milner. He’s in his 30s and still going strong. That’s for a reason. Because he is always in the gym, eating right, doing everything he can to be the best. That’s one thing that I’ll 100 per cent take from Liverpool and James Milner. I would 100 per cent take that and look what he is doing in his 30s and why can’t I do that? The standards, they set the bar very high and that’s something I will never forget and hopefully people looking at me, when I’m older they will hopefully feel the same way.’ When you’re scoring at 23s it’s good but when you’re scoring in men’s football in the papers, in the news, it’s a lot different because of where you’re doing it. You’re doing it in a bigger stage. Now the Premier League is a bigger stage than the Championship and hopefully I can do the same in the Prem. It was the right time for me to get out and try and prove myself in the Premier League. I could have stayed at Liverpool and been in and around it, training, this week for Champions League and stuff like that. Of course, I’ve left a lot of people behind at Liverpool that I loved seeing every day and it was a difficult decision but hopefully everyone else sees that I made the right decision to go to Sheffield United. It’s going to be a bit weird but it will be a nice moment just to see everybody. I didn’t get to say goodbye because it happened so quick.”
