Jerome Sinclair remains the youngest-ever player to feature for Liverpool, but his carrier has seen a sharp downfall in the last few years. Thus, he is now without any club at the age of 26.
Jerome now owns a fried chicken takeaway in Birmingham to support his family.
Early days of Jerome Sinclair
Sinclair made his LFC debut at the age of 16 back in September 2012. He debuted in a League Cup tie away at West Brom. But now his playing career seems to be over just over a decade since he made his professional debut for the Premier League giants.
Sinclair came through West Brom’s academy before moving to the English giants at £200,000. He spent most of the 2011/2012 season with U-16. Then he was promoted to U-18 before then moving up to the reserves.
“Everything happened so quickly. I was in year 11 at the time. My first session with the first team at Melwood was the best I’ve had in my life-everything I touched was a goal”,
he told FOOTY 25/8 in 2020.
“I was just happy to be there. Rodgers called me over and said, ’I really like you, you’re going to be up here more’. Then at hotel I found I was on the bench against West Brom.”
Jerome continues to rise. He made his PL debut away at Chelsea in 2015, before featuring in Steven Gerrard’s final game at Anfield.
“There were some huge names in that dressing room, like (Luis) Suarez and (Phil) Coutinho but Gerrard was the best”
Sinclair said in 2020.
But his talent got wasted as his performance could not gain the trust of the manager. The ex-Liverpool played and then loaned on numerous occasions but the results were the same.
His last competitive appearance was on May 26, 2021, for CSKA Sofia. The Englishman scored 3 times in 27 appearances and won the Bulgarian Cup. At present, he has hanged his boots and owns a Chicken takeaway in Birmingham.
Sinclair is a prime example that extraordinary talent without hard work is good for nothing.
