18 year old English young defender Joe Gomez is one of Liverpool’s six summer signings so far who arrived to Anfield on a £3.5 million fee from Charlton Athletic.
Gomez is predominantly a center back but can be deployed as a right back.
The defender played as a right back in Liverpool’s first pre-season friendly against Thai All Stars and did really well.
The English youth international then gave back to back impressive performances at left back position.
Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter and some even said he surpassed Paolo Maldini.
Here are some tweets:
Rodgers on Joe Gomez: “I’ve seen him at centre half and right back, but I wanted to see him at left back and I thought he was outstanding.”

Unconfirmed reports that Franco Baresi wept openly at the performance of Joe Gomez in that first half. The splendour moved him to tears.

Big Joe Gomez getting loads of love again. Don’t want to build him up too much here, but he’s already surpassed Maldini.
