Jordon Ibe not getting carried away by pre-season form

04 August 2015, 21:36

London - Jordon Ibe has been impressive in pre-season for Liverpool but he is not resting on his laurels ahead of the Anfield side's Premier League opener against Stoke City on Sunday.

With the departure of Raheem Sterling to Manchester City, the Anglo-Nigerian is expected to be the player to fill the boots of the England international, and he has declared that he is working on his weak areas.

‘'I'm not completely satisfied because I need to keep working on a few things, like my end product - getting the ball and finding someone in the box and trying to add a few more goals to my game,'' Jordon Ibe told liverpolfc.com.

''I'm quite self-critical. I like to think about things after a game - things I could have improved on, like maybe having taken a shot on or something."

The 19-year-old admitted that he has been sharp due to the extra sessions he had with Alex Inglethorpe and Kenny Dalglish, having resumed pre-season training before the rest of the squad.

Ibe said: ''I'm definitely feeling the benefits of that. All the little bits of extra work add up. I have to give a lot of credit to Alex. It was great to come in and work with someone like Kenny [Dalglish].

"I've done some extra training sessions at Melwood as well, so hopefully it'll all add up for me.''
