Liverpool Under-23 manager Michael Beale is of the opinion that Kevin Stewart is yet to showcase his full potential.

The youngster, who joined Liverpool from Tottenham Hotspur in 2014, has featured considerably since Jurgen Klopp took charge of the club in October.

Prior to Klopp’s appointment, Stewart spent time on loan at Cheltenham Town, Burton Albion and Swindon Town.

The 22-year-old made his senior Liverpool debut under Klopp in January and has since gone on to make 14 appearances in all competitions for the Reds.

Stewart was a part of Liverpool’s pre-season campaign and even featured in the 4-0 rout of Barcelona last month.


And Beale, who is pleased in the manner in which Stewart’s story is unfolding, however, feels the starlet has still not managed to show his full potential.

“I still think there’s more to come”, Beale explained to LFC TV.

“I think he has not always shown how strong technically he is. He has shown his physical attributes, his discipline and what sort of a boy he is.

“I was extremely pleased for him when he played against his heroes, against Barcelona.

“So now Kevin is playing with his heroes and against maybe some of the idols he grew up with.

“He comes from a family of Reds and his stories are the kind you take pride in.”

Stewart, who signed a new two-year deal with Liverpool in February, has made three appearances in all competitions for the Anfield outfit this season.
