Spaniard Stefan Bajcetic was among the youngsters who really cared about the opportunities he had during the summer. In the “Fabiño role”, he starred in several matches, earning time in all five training matches that Liverpool played in July.
Now the 17-year-old has announced that he has agreed with Liverpool to extend the contract. How long the contract is in question is currently unknown. Bajcetic was brought from Celta Vigo in the new year in 2021 and turns 18 in October. He sat on the bench as Liverpool opened the series against Fulham at the weekend.
“I am pleased to extend the contract with the club. The hard work continues.” Instagram-the account. Below the photo, congratulations flow in from teammates like Adrian, Tyler Morton, Harvey Davies and Isaac Mabaya.
Bajcetic can play both as central defender and midfield, and in recent times he has played more than one midfielder. The youngster was brought to Merseyside before Brexit rules were enforced in England, otherwise he would not have been ready for the Liverpool game. By New Year 2021, it was forbidden to bring in players under the age of 18 from abroad.
The 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with the club in November.
