Liverpool defender Jarell Quansah expressed his commitment to continuous improvement after contributing to Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City in the Carabao Cup third-round match.
The 20-year-old defender provided an assist for Diogo Jota’s goal in the 89th minute, sealing Liverpool’s win after earlier goals from Dominik Szoboszlai and Cody Gakpo.
Quansah, who prefers defending but is happy to contribute offensively, spoke about his desire to develop his game further, saying, “I just prefer defending but obviously if I can contribute with an assist or a goal every now and again, I’m always happy. It’s been nice (playing at the senior level) I’ve wanted to do it. I just wanted the opportunity, that was the biggest thing for me,” the 20-year-old told the club website.
“I’m glad that I’ve had it and taken it so far, but it’s about kicking on and improving, I’ve got so much to improve still; times in the game there I’ve given the ball away. I’m a perfectionist so I’m always working on the pitch to get better and better,” he added.
Liverpool has been drawn against AFC Bournemouth, another Premier League side, in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
As the grandson of former Black Stars player Samuel Quansah, Jarell Quansah is eligible to represent Ghana, Scotland, England, or Barbados in international football.
