In an attempt to uncover the potential release clause of West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen, Paul Scholes faced challenges and uncertainties, following Jurgen Klopp’s recent praise for the English striker.
Earlier this week, Klopp expressed his admiration for Bowen, calling him his “favorite player” ahead of Liverpool’s EFL Cup quarter-final against West Ham.
Despite the 5-1 defeat at Anfield, Bowen showcased his goal-scoring prowess, adding to his impressive tally of 13 goals in all competitions this season.
Klopp commended David Moyes for his remarkable work with West Ham, highlighting Bowen’s crucial contributions, especially in the absence of Michail Antonio.
The Liverpool manager’s comments stirred reactions, with Michail Antonio responding on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, suggesting Klopp’s interest in Bowen.
During Saturday afternoon’s coverage of West Ham’s match against Manchester United, Mark Noble, West Ham’s sporting director, downplayed concerns about Klopp’s admiration impacting Bowen’s future.
Noble emphasized the significance of Bowen’s long-term commitment, secured with a new deal in November.
Paul Scholes, curious about Bowen’s potential buyout clause, prodded Noble during the broadcast. Noble, however, chose not to disclose such details, expressing satisfaction with Bowen’s role as a catalyst for West Ham’s aspirations and playing style.
