Liverpool Europa League starlet with Dad played alongside Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen

Liverpool rest key players for Europa League match, potentially giving Lewis Koumas his debut, continuing his family's legacy at the club.

Jurgen Klopp is considering giving a Liverpool youngster his debut in an upcoming match, and it seems that football runs in the family for this promising player.

Liverpool will be wrapping up their Europa League campaign with a game in Belgium against Union Saint-Gilloise. With the team already securing their spot in the knockout stages, Klopp has decided to rest some of his key players in preparation for an important Premier League showdown with Manchester United.

This decision has opened up an opportunity for several academy players to showcase their talent, including 18-year-old forward Lewis Koumas. What makes Koumas stand out is his strong family ties to the Anfield club, with his father, Jason Koumas, having a successful career as an attacking midfielder for Premier League teams like West Brom and Wigan Athletic.

What's even more fascinating is that Koumas Sr. began his football journey in Liverpool's academy, where he played alongside well-known names such as Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen. Gerrard went on to become a legendary captain for Liverpool, while Owen even won the prestigious Ballon d'Or award in 2001 before moving to Real Madrid.

Although Jason Koumas didn't reach the same heights, he represented Wales on 34 occasions and even captained the national team. Now, his son Lewis has the opportunity to make his mark and earn his first senior appearance for Liverpool, which would undoubtedly be a proud moment for the Koumas family.
