Paul Glatzel interview | Progress, patience, perspective and planning

Chris Shaw@__ChrisShaw

Patience is certainly a virtue for Paul Glatzel.

Nine months of careful rehabilitation from the anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered last summer have brought the Liverpool striker close to a return to the pitch.

The 19 year-old was on course to begin training again this month, a symbolic step on the long, emotionally challenging road back to playing football.  That stage of his recuperation has, by necessity, been delayed by the current COVID-19 outbreak and the requirement for players to maintain fitness by following individual programmes at home.  But Glatzel is handling the circumstances with characteristic perspective; a mindset shaped by injuries past and present.

“I’m basically at the end of my rehab,” he tells Liverpoolfc.com.  “I was meant to be back training, I should have been back around now but obviously with what is going on it’s not possible at the moment.  “So I’m just making sure I do my fitness stuff I’ve been sent from the club and just waiting for all this to take its course and then be back on the pitch when we’re allowed.

“The sessions have been adapted obviously to what I’m able to do;  I’ve been given running programmes for my fitness and strength programmes and I’ve been given equipment to be able to do those sessions.  I’m staying at home and I’m not allowed to go to the club or Melwood, but I’m still getting on with my work and doing well.

“I’d hope to be able to get a few training sessions in pretty soon when we come back.  I’ll probably have to do a little bit more rehab and then hopefully get back into training.  Then wait and see what happens.

“Hopefully I can get a few minutes but I’ll just have to see what happens and focus on getting back to full fitness.
 “I think I’ve got quite a good mindset to be able to carry out my sessions every day because I’ve had a few injuries in my past and I’ve seemed to do well dealing with that.  I’m kind of used to it a little bit more than maybe other players. 

“I try to just make sure I get things done, even if I’m not feeling as motivated as other days I still grind and get the session done.  To be fair, I like to do my sessions as well because it makes me feel like I’m getting better and getting closer to fitness.

“I don’t really have many days that I’m down because I’m always trying to work hard and improve and get back to where I need to be.”

At the moment, Glatzel’s daily schedule begins around 9.30am with a pre-activation routine conducted via video call alongside the U23s squad.
Once suitably warmed up, running sessions consolidate his core fitness levels before strength exercises – once more, in tandem with his Academy teammates – take place mid-afternoon.

“We try to have a structured day and get as much work done as we can,” Glatzel, captain of the FA Youth Cup-winning U18s in 2018-19, explains.

“It’s not great to be away from the boys, we all like to be together and like to make sure we do our sessions together.  At the moment it’s not possible.  It’s good to see the lads on the screen, even if it is only for half an hour or however long it takes.

“You just need to make sure everything you do, you do properly even though you are at home and you might not have the right circumstances for what you need to do.  You still need to carry on and make sure you get everything done.”

Glatzel’s long-term rehabilitation has been coordinated by the club’s medical department at Melwood after Jürgen Klopp personally called for him to undergo treatment at the first-team base following the incident at Tranmere Rovers last July.
His relationship with the physios tasked with leading his recovery programme, which is designed to maximise the youngster’s durability far beyond an initial comeback, is crucial.

Because the natural desire to be out on the grass again must be tempered by an understanding of the bigger picture.

“The injury I’ve had has been a long injury, I’ve not kicked a ball since the start of pre-season,” Glatzel reflected.
“It has been a tough one to take because I was doing quite well before that.  I’ve just got to make sure I get my sessions in and be patient because time is a healer in this sense.
“I just need to wait for my injury to be sorted and to heal properly so that when I come back the risk of me getting injured again is much, much lower and I can just focus on my football again.

“It’s always important to have a good relationship with physios, especially when I’ve been injured for a while now. And I think I’ve got that.

“They’re always looking after me, even now when we’ve got to stay at home; they’re staying in touch over text and making sure I’ve got everything I need. They’ve made sure I’ve got all the equipment and I’m basically able to do my session without a lot of problems.

“They’ve been really good.  They check in every day to see how my session was and how I’m feeling, just making sure I’m OK.”

The lay-off has, however, presented some opportunities for the forward, who was born in Liverpool to German parents, both of whom work for the National Health Service.

Specifically, the chance to study first-team matches with an analytical eye, to look more closely at the patterns and movements that made Klopp’s side European Cup winners, world champions and Premier League leaders.

“With me not being able to train, watching games is quite a big part of me being able to learn about the game and about our specific style of play,” he states.

“I’ve been looking at the games differently than I was before because I need to keep learning and keep evolving because otherwise everyone else catches you up when you’re not allowed to do that on the pitch.

“Watching games has been quite a big part of my learning development at the moment, because that’s all I can really do.  I’m focusing on games and not just watching to see the scoreline but to see how they’re playing and what I need to be able to do when I come back.”

Glatzel’s gaze is often drawn to one particular player in the team.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s recovery from a similar serious injury sustained two years ago, and his achievement in reproducing the standards he showed before being sidelined, provide perfect inspiration.

“I quite like to see how he is doing,” said the teenager, scorer of 28 goals last term.  “When he plays well or has a good game, it fills me with confidence because I know what he’s been through and I know he’s been out for a long time but he’s been able to bounce back.

“He has been playing well and scoring goals, so I just hope when I get back I can do the same.  It’s good to have someone like that to look up to and see they’ve been there and done that. Hopefully I can do that too.

“Agility is pretty much what I need for my game, to be able to turn quickly and change direction.  I can see that in Ox’s game, he’s not focusing on the knee problems he’s had in the past.

“He is just playing normally, changing direction smoothly and is doing all he can do and all he needs to do without really having any thoughts about the injury he has had in the past.”

Football pales in comparison to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis affecting the whole world and Glatzel has added perspective there, too.

His father, a GP, is working from home and his mother is fulfilling extended hours in her role as an anaesthetist in hospital at the most challenging of times.

“You’ve got to appreciate what they do,” said Glatzel.  “They’re my parents, so I’m proud of them whatever, but they are working hard – as are all the NHS staff, which is really appreciated by everyone.

“It’s such an important thing that they look after everyone and they’re doing it as much as they can.  The round of applause at 8pm the other day was a really nice touch, it was lovely to see that everyone is appreciating them.

“It’s so important to stay at home and not go out and do things you might want to do.  If you do, it puts more stress on the NHS and my parents.  You just need to be prepared to stay at home for as long as it takes, to make sure fewer people are affected.

You need to stay indoors.

“You also need to make sure you still stay connected with your family and friends, with the technology – webcams, texts or phone calls – because you need to make sure your mental health is good as well and you need to be healthy.

“Just stay indoors and stay safe.”

Good to see Layton getting some attention from the Echo, they've had some interesting podcasts on some of the youngsters coming through at the Academy recently. Considering the situation we're all facing and with the prospect of transfers not being as many as usual, there could be a few opportunities for the up and coming players.

I agree Jill.  We are in that very fortunate position of having quite a few youngsters capable of making a case for themselves.

Something to look forward to if we ever start playing again.

So are Layton Stewart, Leighton Clarkson and James Balagizi the next 'next ones' that are expected to excel in the Academy and potentially train with the first team?

Have read many a nice thing about Mr. Balagizi but never seen him play.

Stewart has already trained with the first team and impressed Klopp, Alex Inglethorpe has said recently he can be anything he wants to be so he's rated highly. He scored 56 goals at the under 16's having just moved up to the under 18's last season. As for Leighton Clarkson we've already seen what he is capable of from this season's cup games. I would imagine he will definitely see more game time. Balagizi is very good too, a definite one with real potential.

In other news Stewart’s under 18 partner Fidel O’Rourke has signed his first professional contract.

I'd add James Norris and Tyler Morton to that list, they've both been very impressive.

Still possible they’ll get minutes off the bench though, given the five subs ruling. If that’s implemented here.

I think he said something like that.
There are probably a couple of caveats that go with it: Like fatigue, match fitness, knocks etc.
Wouldn't be surprised to see 1-2 players in the starting lineup and a few more coming in from the bench, that don't play in most of the big games.

Would really like Harvey to get more game time before the season ends.

Apart from him earning his stripes deservedly, it sends a positive signal to the youngsters that If you try hard and apply yourself, there will always be a good opportunity to play for the European and World Champions and PL elect.

Hopefully he does....but I’d suggest Trent and Gomez are already proof of the above.
Or he could read Babu's Twitter threads, which is where I get my opinions from

There will not be long between before the new season begins, little point in flogging our player to death. I would say its a perfect opportunity once the title's been decided to throw some younger players in.

Is the 5 subs rule available in every league now until the season ends? I'd thought it was just in Germany, but of course nowhere else is really playing yet.

If we can do that I'd definitely expect Jones and Elliot to get a few minuts.

Was a shame what happened to Glatzel and Brewster, both must have missed at least a year each, annoying at that age when they were gaining momentum in the u23s. Should try and get them some football next season on loan I think.

You know that Brewster is already on loan right?

Personally hoping that Williams and Jones can get more game time than Glatzel or Elliott, those two are really close to being full on squad members and could be valuable next season as well if they develop well.

It sounds as Cain and Clarkson did okay in the warm-up game, sounds as though Clarkson created his chance as well as finishing it. It could be a really interesting season(s) for some of these lads if they take the opportunities they get.

cain have flown under the radar a bit. he played vs shrewsbury in the cup as well

what kind of player is he?

seems like we are stacked with youth players making the step up to seniors. Curtis Jones, Elliot, Glatzel, Neco, Larouchi and Hoever are just some names that needs looking out for the future.

He is a very creative midfielder, quick has an eye for goal I really enjoy watching him play.  He is someone who can create out of very little. One of these players who can burst into action and put something on a plate for one of the forwards.

Whatever happened to Ben Woodburn ? A couple of years ago he looked like he had the potential to be a young genius. And now...I genuinely never see his name anywhere near a Liverpool squad. Injured ??

Stagnated a bit, but from what I understand had a positive start to the season at Oxford until his injury.

Went to Oxford on loan and did extremely well. Oxford in 3rd before covid 19 but Ben broke his foot but should be back for the play offs.

He's doing well. Don't rule him out yet. He's a lot stronger now and I believe maybe another loan next season(certainly at Oxford if they go up) but he is rated at liverpool.
