After becoming the youngest player to wear the captain’s armband for Liverpool, Curtis Jones said that it’s an amazing feeling and a proud moment for him to achieve the feat.
In the absence of all regular first-team players, Curtis Jones captained Liverpool against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup fourth-round replay at Anfield, following a stalemate at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.
The Reds won 1-0 after Shrewbury’s Ro-Shaun Williams diverted the ball into his own net.
“It’s an amazing feeling. The boys, the coaches, the staff that have trained all week have been absolutely unbelievable and it’s a proud moment for me to be the youngest player to captain the Reds. I’m happy that we topped it off with a win for our great fans,” LFC TV quoted Jones as saying
Jones added that the club has an ‘unbelievable history’ and it is special to lead Liverpool from the front.
“It’s got an unbelievable history, it’s got unbelievable fans and it’s an amazing feeling just to be out there and playing, but to captain the team is just an extra bit special,” he added.
The Reds will now take on Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup fifth-round tie on March.
On Saturday, Liverpool will face Norwich City at Carrow Road in the Premier League.
Liverpool currently holds the top spot in the Premier League and are unbeaten so far.
