Jamie Carragher’s heartwarming moment with the father of his Liverpool debut – Liverpool FC

Liverpool striker Max Woltman became the latest player to make his debut for the club on Tuesday night, with Jamie Carragher revealing his connection to the 18-year-old.

With the Red Devils in a position that can’t be ready in Champions League group, Jurgen Klopp was able to give 4 key players a break during the trip to AC Milan.

Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago and Diogo Jota all stay on Merseyside, along with suspensions James Milner, and the manager made eight changes to his roster at the San Siro.

Academy quarterback Tyler Morton for the second time Champions League started, while Woltman, Conor BradleyJames Norris and Harvey Davies both came on from the bench.

Woltman, Morton’s teammate throughout their footballing lives, came on from the bench alongside Bradley in the second half, as Carragher shared his exchange with his father during the game.

“I texted him before the game, ‘great,’ when I looked at the standings. When he arrived, ‘wow, so much fun for you and your family,’ he said on CBS.

“[He replied], ‘unbelievable, wow, thankyou!’. So that’s his father. ”

It was a special moment for Woltman and his family, as Carragher cared deeply about the development of the young striker who had followed him through his years in the academy.

Woltman, Morton and Norris are all around the same age as Carragher’s son James, who currently plays as a centre-back for Wigan, the Liverpool legend further explained.

“My sons were in Liverpool, they are very young now, six years old. So I followed that group of players,” he continued.

“There was another guy on the bench, James Norris, who never came on. So I’ve seen them come through some sort of system.

“They’re at the age of 18 or 19 right now, where they’ve made a name for themselves in the game.”

While Woltman and Norris may be asked to wait for another chance, 19-year-old Morton seems firmly established as a first-team option, having appeared in the matchday squad for eight of nine most recent match.

“I thought Tyler Morton was excellent in midfield. He was amazing,” said Carragher.

“A teenage player, playing for Liverpool, one of the biggest clubs in European football, your hometown club, in San Siro…

“San Siro is one of them. I played there only once when I was in my late 20s, and for me it was like ‘this is amazing, this is unbelievable’.

“He’s only 18 or 19 years old and to be playing in a game they’ve won – not just playing – and showing the performance he did, I’m happy for them.

“As for the family, what will their mothers and fathers think, but Jurgen Klopp and give those boys a chance. He really gave them a chance. “
