Amara Nallo, the “Rolls Royce” in Liverpool youth team

Nallo has been praised by Liverpool’s under-21 coach Barry Lewtas back in October,

“Amara was excellent. Him and Carter Pinnington have been playing quite regularly for us so far together. Listen, he [Nallo] is just 16, and I don’t think we’ve ever asked a lad that young to play at centre-back against senior opposition.”

“He should be really proud of his performance. I think the main thing for Amara is he played ever so well but he didn’t let any kind of mistakes or momentum shifts in the game affect him. So he didn’t play like a 16-year-old, that’s for sure.”

The then 16-years-old defender was nicknamed as “Rolls Royce” by West Ham youth coach Carlton Cole. The nickname itself describes the class of the player, even at such a young age.
