Jordan Rossiter

Jordan Rossiter was born on 24th March 1997, and currently plays as a central midfielder for the Liverpool and England youth sides.

Rossiter made his debut for Liverpool under 18s in the NextGen home game against Inter Milan on January the 8th, 2013. His late cameo appearance prompted a tweet from Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, who commented “A young lad just about to come on for a few mins for Liverpool in nextgen… Jordan rossiter, big shout but potentially a young stevie g..”

Jordan has captained England under 16s, and is seen as a player who can lead a side by example with his hard work and box to box style in midfield. He has an eye for a pass, as he showed in the game against Inter when he sent Samed Yesil through on goal after winning the ball in midfield. This one passage of play, coupled with the praise from Fowler, has generated much excitement amongst the Liverpool supporters who follow youth football.

He is expected to feature more frequently in Alex Inglethorpe’s youth squad as the 2012/13 season progresses, and if he continues to impress we could see him as a fixture in this age group, which is a feeder side to the first team.
