Holloway delighted with Shelvey as player returns to Liverpool

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has praised the work of midfielder Jonjo Shelvey following his return to Liverpool from loan, The Liverpool Echo reports.

Shelvey was recalled to Anfield in the wake of Lucas Leiva’s season-ending knee injury and shined at the Seasiders, scoring six goals in 11 appearances. Holloway is hopeful that he is involved at the Reds and can follow the path of Blackpool old boy Charlie Adam in the Liverpool midfield. Adam made the switch from Blackpool to Liverpool in the summer and Holloway believes Shelvey has the capabilities to follow the Scotsman.

Holloway said: ‘I just hope he is involved, because when someone invests that amount of money in a lad so early, they often end up getting stacked and racked and lost. It is a shame he has had to go back, because Liverpool are playing exceptionally well and I had been hoping that might leave an opportunity for us to keep Jonjo until the end of the season.

‘All I know is that Jonjo is a fantastic young man who has all sorts of ability. I have no doubts whatsoever he will be a top, top player. He has improved in the time he’s been here and that pleases me’, Holloway added.
