A depressing season for Liverpool comes to an end this afternoon with a game at relegated Hull that seems like a case of going through the motions. But it’s more than that for at least one of Liverpool’s squad. 16-year-old academy player Jack Robinson is on the bench and would become the club’s youngest-ever first team player if the manager brought him on.
Will it be Rafa’s last game in charge? Despite the speculation it seems unlikely, but it really is difficult to work out what happens next for a club that is falling apart from above, and too hard to tell which of the squad – or those out through injury or otherwise – will be a part of the club’s plans for next season.
Yossi Benayoun is believed to have played his last game for the club, but if the chairman is to be believed Fernando Torres hasn’t.
But can we believe the chairman? That is the sort of question all Liverpool fans must strive to find an answer to, because the truth has been a stranger to the Anfield boardroom for far too long.
Good luck to Jack.
