Though he hasn’t played a game in more than nine months due to a serious leg injury, American youngster Marc Pelosi has signed a new contract with Liverpool FC.
The 19-year-old U.S. youth international midfielder suffered a broken leg on Feb. 17, but according to Liverpool, his impressive progression in his rehabilitation from injury has helped him him earn a new contract.
Liverpool signed the German-born American in November 2011, following some good performances with the USA in the 2011 Under-17 World Cup. Since then, he’s been a member of the English club’s reserve and Under-18 teams, though he’s still waiting for his chance to debut for the first team.
What do you think of this news? Glad to see Pelosi on the road to recovery? Do you expect him to see a first team opportunity this season? Do you believe he may be sent out on loan?
