Stefan Bajcetic announced his arrival to the Premier League against Everton with a commanding performance beyond his years. Liverpool fans knew he was good before, maybe they didn’t know he was this good.
“Since he started playing with us, he’s been our best player”, Mohamed Salah said about the 18-year-old.
Bajcetic was clearly flattered and said ‘wow, he’s Mohamed Salah, one of the best players ever’ when asked his thoughts on the Egyptian star’s praise.
Bajcetic put in a coming-of-age performance and said ‘this time last year I was playing u18 football, now I’m playing at Anfield.’
‘I always love tackles’, he told Sky Sports and confidently said ‘I thought it would be less comfortable’.
