Liverpool’s Kevin Stewart Embraces Versatility As He Signs New Contract

After signing an extension to his Liverpool contract Tuesday, Kevin Stewart shared his delight with and discussed a whirlwind year and his aims for the future. Kevin, congratulations on your new deal, just what does this mean to you?

Stewart: It gives me more confidence, it shows (the club) believes in me and believe that I could go on to become a good player for them. It has just given me confidence in myself and the security (I have) time to prove myself and get better with good coaches and good players. I remember you coming on at right-back in a preseason game in Scandanavia, and you’ve gone from there, through the Academy, into the first team and into midfield — sum up the last year or two.

Stewart: It’s been exciting, there have been a lot of disappointments, but all-in-all it’s been great. I’ve really enjoyed the battle and the challenges that have come from changing positions, learning a new position, and doing it with Michael Beale, Alex Inglethorpe and all the coaches. I’ve found it really exciting. So are your full-back days finished? Are you a central midfielder now?

Stewart: I enjoy it more than full-back now, always (being) in the action, it’s more of a battle and you see more of the ball. But I wouldn’t write off playing as a full-back, I like to think of myself as someone who can play as both when needed. I want to be seen as a midfielder first who can play full-back.
