If that was a full strength Liverpool, Hannibal is tearing it up in the U23s. He looks capable, just wonder if his willowy frame will bulk up enough to withstand the physicality of the Prem. He turns 18 in January, I hope we can keep him and I hope he is patient and waits for his chance in the first team, because he will get them.

From what I hear discipline is an issue for him he is wound up a bit to easily so he needs to develop that self control as top players will feed on that and use it to get you into trouble.

Might get into a match day squad in the FA cup later in the year depending on how the draw goes but I imagine he’s training with the first team.

Coming on really nicely for the U23’s this season, he has added a little more discipline to his game as well. Played really well last night and looks to have a good understanding with Diallo. Probably won’t see him for the first team this season but would like to think he will be part of the first team at some point next season.

He's been training with the first team players who aren't on international duty this week.

Club have even put photos out on their social media of it so everyone knows.

Think this season we might get a look at him if there are any dead rubber games at the end of the season.

So just how good could this kid be?
Potential wise, very special.

He has matured in the youth teams now. One time his discipline was not good at all but that is slowly being ironed out. His general play is improving, needs to fill out a bit but I have no doubts the kid will make it here. There isn’t many I’ve said that about over the years. Give it a couple of years and think he’ll be very much in our first team and thriving.

What position do you think he'll play in the United first team? CM?

He will be a central midfield player but the stuff I read on him suggest he’s still maybe 1-2 years away from being ready for our first team.

I think we might see him around the first team at the start of next season training with them and maybe league cup chances before going on loan for the second half of the season.

He looks to be at the stage where U23 football already isn’t enough of a challenge for him.

Discipline can be a problem for him but at U23 level he gets kicked off the park and the refs allow some shocking tackles to go unpunished and he sometimes reacts to the rough treatment.
