Liverpool FC Director of Football Damian Comolli is excited by the potential of scouting opportunities in Asia.

Liverpool has taken two Chinese youngsters on a week-long trial and Comolli is keen to further strengthen the link between the club and the region. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Comolli believes Asia is “an untapped market”.

He went on to state: “It has such a vast population and there are an incredible number of youngsters playing football in that part of the world. Statistically we think there will be good players coming out of these countries. With China being the biggest one and football being the most popular sport amongst young people, we feel it is an opportunity to find a quality player.”
