BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, February 7, 2013
In a very promising turn of events, US U-20 midfielder Marc Pelosi was added to Liverpool's Europa League roster for the knockout stages.

Also released is that Pelosi will wear number 44 for the tournament.

Pelosi, 18, has been a prominent player with Liverpool's reserve team as well as their U-19 team in the NextGen series tournament. He signed with the club in 2011 following the U-17 World Cup in Mexico.

Born in Germany but raised in California, Pelosi has been a frequent contributor to US youth national teams over the years but was not released by his club to be on the current US U-20 roster for World Cup qualifying. US U-20 head coach Tab Ramos has said he will add two more players to the team in the coming days.

Liverpool FC will take on Zenit St. Petersburg in a two game series in the Round of 16 of the Europa League. The first leg will be on February 14 in Russia with Liverpool hosting the return leg on February 21.

Not sure of his best position....I don't even think he knows. ha. It might be the 8 though I don't think we will see him much there...too many quality players ahead of him. I think we will see him playing LW for the majority of his games at Liverpool. The management does think that his skillset is typical of an 8.....but he won't play there hardly. Lucky of him and us, he is extremely versatile. I honestly think he could play anywhere on the pitch and excel.

Good for him. But what is his best position. I have heard Liverpool see's him as an attacking #8. Is this where we can expect him in the future?

Hopefully he actually gets some PT....like Sinclair did in the previous outing in the earlier rounds. Maybe we can jump on Zenit early and he can come on the last 15 or so. At least he will get a look at the 1st team and what BR expects out of his players, and see how far he has to go.
