This week, Liverpool are preparing for Wednesday’s Champions League Group A opener against Napoli.

Melkamu Frauendorf

The Anfield team will start their European season in Naples against the current Serie A second team.

Liverpool have only won two of their first six Premier League games amid an injury crisis.
The Reds enter the field after the goalless draw in the Merseyside derby last Saturday.

Meanwhile, the opponents won again the last time by winning 2-1 at Lazio. Liverpool held a session at the AXA academy on Tuesday before traveling to Italy.

According to Football Daily, Melkamu Frauendorf was seen during the session.
The Echo of Liverpool have also commented on the 18-year-old’s involvement, alongside Isaac Mabaya and Stefan Bajcetic.
And on Tuesday evening, Frauendorf was part of the pack of travelers who left for the game in Naples.

Frauendorf joined Liverpool in August 2020 from German club Hoffenheim. He then signed his first professional contract at Anfield in July 2021.

Frauendorf has already made his Liverpool debut, in the FA Cup third round win over Shrewsbury in January.
He has also played 60 games for Liverpool at age level, scoring a whopping 15 goals and nine assists.

Described by the Liverpool website as “an attacking midfielder with an eye for scoring”, Frauendorf has previously played for Germany at Under 18 level.

Danny Galm, who was Frauendorf’s manager at Hoffenheim for two years, spoke highly of the youngster against Blood Red last year, as transcribed by the Liverpool Echo. “Mel is a very flexible player,” he said.

“He is direct with good technique and very, very good stamina.

“He hasn’t scored any more goals, but he has been involved in almost all the offensive moves.

For me he was a very important player, who often kicked off decisive moments with his dynamic and direct dribbling.

“I don’t like comparing players to others, but Mel is a special player. “He’s fast and tough, wants to learn but stays creative.

“He will continue to develop physically over the next few months and grow [in charge] at Liverpool

“I will follow his development and hope he feels the spirit of Anfield soon.”

Frauendorf’s style of play has been compared to Roberto Firmino’s on Twitter.
