Liverpool news: Rafael Camacho hits out at Jurgen Klopp and coaching staff in extraordinary rant on social media
Liverpool youngster Rafael Camacho has launched an extraordinary attack on Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff for playing him out of position, after netting a hat-trick for the club’s under-23 side on Sunday.
Camacho, 18, played a starring role as the Reds thrashed Leicester 6-0, but has predominantly been used as a right-back for the club.
Camacho was used on the right-side of the Liverpool attack at the King Power Stadium, notching a devastating second-half treble.
Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ben Woodburn and Rhian Brewster also featured for the Reds as they romped to victory.
However, Camacho took to Instagram after the game to express his discontent at Klopp and co for being used in an unfamiliar position for the first team.
“I do not know whose idea it is, but I will prove that they are mistaken about my football,” Camacho’s post read.
“I’m not a right defender, I’m an attacker who scores goals. This is my DNA.
“Happy to score three goals and help the team in today’s win vs Leicester.”
The comments will not have gone down well with Klopp, who have lavished praise on the youngster in recent months.
