Academy forward Adam Morgan has hailed Rodolfo Borrell as the key factor behind his recent hot-streak.

The 17-year-old had netted in 14 consecutive matches for the Reds prior to the U18s clash with Everton, taking his tally for the campaign to 21.

It is a haul the hitman is immensely proud of but one he feels he would never have amassed had it not been for the advice of his Spanish coach.

Morgan told "I'm not ashamed to admit it but at the start of the season I didn't do as much work off the ball as I should have.

"Rodolfo took me to one side and spoke about how I needed to match my ability with a strong work ethic if I wanted to have a chance of making it at Liverpool.

"Now he has got me working harder off the ball and closing down defenders. I feel I've benefitted so much.

"Most of the goals I have scored are down to the words of advice from Rodolfo. The harder I work the more chances I am getting. I wouldn't have done that if Rodolfo hadn't pushed me to better myself.

"We all listen to every word he says because we know it will help us improve. He's a fantastic man and a brilliant coach."
