Sheffield talent on why he parted ways with Liverpool



Sheffield United forward Rhian Brewster has admitted that he could have remained at Liverpool but is confident that a difficult decision to depart and sign for the Blades is the right decision.

The highly-rated attacker swapped Premier League champions, Liverpool, for the fellow PL side for a £23.5m sum in the recently closed transfer window.

Having netted 10 goals for loan club Swansea City in the EFL Championship last term, Brewster was interested in making his mark in the top flight and made the difficult decision to quit the Reds.

Looking back at his Anfield departure, Rhian has admitted that he could have stayed at the club but, having had a taste of senior football in the second division, was desperate to raise his bar.

The 20-year-old ace is confident that joining Sheffield United was the right decision for his professional career and hopes others agree.

“I could have stayed at Liverpool and been in and around it, training, with them for Champions League and stuff like that“, he told the Daily Telegraph.

“Of course I’ve left a lot of people behind at Liverpool that I loved seeing every day and of course it was a difficult decision but hopefully everyone sees that I made the right decision to go to Sheffield United.

“When you get a taste for playing week-in, week-out, fighting for the team and you want to do it all the time.

“I don’t think I would have had a lot of game time at game time this season and for me it was the right time for me to get out and try and prove myself in the Premier League because what I did last season, I didn’t want to stay at the same bar.”
