Curtis Jones' pride at captaining Liverpool for first time
Young Scousers captaining Liverpool have been a theme throughout the last 30 years, with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler all leading the Reds out.
But Curtis Jones topped the lot as he led the team out as captain last night, at the age of 19 in just his 8th Liverpool appearance.
At the age of 19 though, having made 8 appearances for the Reds is nothing to be ashamed of, particularly as 7 of those came this season.
According to the player himself, it was a proud moment for him. He told Liverpoolfc.com: "It’s an amazing feeling.
"The boys, the coaches, the staff that have trained all week have been absolutely unbelievable and it’s a proud moment for me to be the youngest player to captain the Reds. I’m happy that we topped it off with a win for our great fans."
When asked how he felt about the night and whether his captaining the side was special, Curtis said: "Special? Wow, I think that’s an understatement!
"It’s a dream come true. As you can see Trent’s dream is to captain the team, my dream is to captain the team and the rest of the players as well because it’s an unbelievable club.
"It’s got an unbelievable history, it’s got unbelievable fans and it’s an amazing feeling just to be out there and playing, but to captain the team is just an extra bit special."
