LIVERPOOL’S Conor Bradley says being awarded the club’s Player of the Month is “a privilege” and that hearing fans singing his name “was probably the most special moment of my life”.

The Castlederg right-back had a breakthrough month in January, assisting five goals in six games, and scoring his first senior goal for Liverpool FC.

Speaking to Liverpool.com, Bradley said: “Thank you, it’s a privilege. Obviously it’s been a good month for me, it’s been a good couple of games and yeah, I’m just very happy to win it. As I say, it’s a privilege.”

The Northern Ireland international also won The Reds’ Goal of the Month award for his strike against Chelsea and has been shortlisted for Premier League player of the month.

“I just felt like I was in a dream the whole game. It was pretty mental and it just felt like nothing could go wrong for me, so yeah, I just want to keep working hard now, though, and hopefully focus on the next game and see where it takes us,” he said.



“It means a bit more [being voted for by the fans]. Obviously from the Chelsea game, hearing my name get sung out was probably the most special moment of my life, to be honest, because I have supported the club all my life.”

Bradley has been through the very highest of highs and the lowest of lows recently as his father, Joe, died on February 3.

Bradley has just returned from compassionate leave as he attended the funeral of his dad on February 8 and he said that he wants to pick up where he left off.

“I just want to keep trying to play as well as I can for the team and help the team as much as I can, so hopefully I can pick up with that on Saturday and see what happens,” the Melwood academy graduate said.

Liverpool travel to London to face Brentford on Saturday at 12.30 pm, with Jurgen Klopp’s side hoping to maintain pole position in the English top flight.

Bradley is also on the shortlist for the Premier League’s Player of the Month, where he is joined by players such as clubmate Diogo Jota, Manchester City; ‘s Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham’s Richarlison.
