Jay Spearing thrilled with first months of Liverpool return


Liverpool U21 player-coach Jay Spearing is thrilled with his return to the club.

Spearing left Tranmere Rovers to take up the academy role this season.

And he has admitted building relationships with many of the youngsters within the Academy has played a crucial part in his ability to hit the ground running.

"It has been incredible. I have loved absolutely every second of it. The stuff I have learned, you will never learn elsewhere," he told the Liverpool Echo. "The way of playing, the detail of the training sessions and the meetings where you learn from Alex [Inglethorpe] and find out what an incredible person he is to work for have been brilliant. Alex glues you in and I'm very fortunate to learn from someone like him. Even the other staff around like Marc Bridge-Wilkinson have been fantastic for me, the chefs and the kitmen - it's a great vibe everyday and you learn things from people you may not have thought you would have.

"The role is quite new to the game. It has been something some clubs have done over the last couple of years and when Alex asked me to come and do it, I had no idea what it entailed. At the end of the day, I want to become a coach. Right now, I couldn't have asked for a better transition as I'm still able to train every day, demand standards and show everything on and off the field that Alex wants the boys to follow."
