Ought to Jake Livermore be dropped when play resumes?
The previous Huddersfield City head coach can have had a say within the latest choice handy Harry Whitwell his first professional contract too, who will probably look to the aforementioned star because the one to comply with.
He stands as proof that there’s a clear pathway for academy gamers to make the breakthrough into the primary crew, and now this 17-year-old will look to do precisely that.
The 33-year-old is performing admirably for his age, with a 6.70 common SofaScore ranking denoting hardly worrying kind, however with an academy that has already produced a lot of their present beginning squad, they need to quickly look to dip into it as soon as extra as he involves the twilight of his profession.
