Stefan Bajcetic came in like a shooting star in the winter last season. Liverpool struggled to achieve good results in the English Premier League, and the Spaniard became a kind of rescue in a very difficult situation.
In April, it was reported that the 18-year-old’s season had been cut short after suffering a groin strain. Many were hoping to see Bajcetic return in the preseason, but it came too soon. He returned to the field for the first team on 21 September against LASK, and featured in the Leicester match shortly after, before another injury ruled him out.
According to insider Neil Jones, there is no concern about the player’s health.
– His situation is quite clear: he must return to full training, and then the club will evaluate the situation. At 18 years old, Liverpool were ready for such challenges. The journalist tells TeamTalk.
Such injuries to young players are not at all unusual, especially in a fast-paced league like the Premier League. Jones said that the club is dealing with the situation very calmly.
– There was always a risk that the increased intensity, combined with his normal physical development, would lead to injuries and pose problems. There is no worry in Kirkby. This is considered normal for a promising young player.
Don’t expect to get a loan
Fabrizio Romano was one of the journalists who talked about the possibility of a loan for the 18-year-old.
“It’s not looking easy to fit into the team again with all the new signings. Liverpool haven’t made a decision on Bajcetic at the moment, so we’ll see what happens later this year,” he wrote on Tuesday.
Spanish club Sevilla are one of the clubs that have shown interest in the young midfielder, but Jones does not expect the loan deal to become a reality.
-I would be very surprised if it ended up being a loan. Bajcetic is a player the club has a lot of confidence in, and he possesses the natural skills needed to thrive in a new version of Liverpool. He is technically skilled, has a judicious defensive style and plays with great confidence.
A selection of Pajcetic highlights from 2023:
In the absence of the aforementioned Bajcitic and Thiago, Alexis McAllister has been used in a deep midfield role. Right now, the spot is wide open for the player who seizes the opportunity.
– He has been given a lot of responsibility on a team that struggled last season, and there is great excitement about what he can add to a more coordinated unit. Jones concludes that loaning him out in January would be incomprehensible in such a situation.
No specific date has been set for Bajcetic’s return, but it is expected that he may be ready to play again after the national team’s break.
