Klopp was full of praise for the trio after the game, but all three have returned to duty with the under-23s, along with sporadic appearances with the first team in training.
The youngster is currently behind Alexander-Arnold, Milner and Neco Williams in the pecking order, and it may be that when he does eventually break through as a regular option, it is further forward.
Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough has revealed conversations with Klopp in which they agreed Bradley’s future could be in midfield, rather than right-back.
“Jurgen thinks – and I agree, who am I not to agree with him actually? – that Conor could play in a midfield role as he gets older,” he told BelfastLive.
“He has the skill set to be a conventional full-back or a wing-back, but he can also play in midfield. A little bit higher up.
“He’s got a great understanding of football and different areas, so that’s a great string to his bow.”
Given the difficulty in shifting Alexander-Arnold as first-choice right-back, a role the No. 66 is expected to hold for at least another decade, it makes sense to play on Bradley’s versatility.
The youngster was originally a striker, and joined Liverpool in 2019 as a wide midfielder, with his attacking qualities allowing him to fill the role of full-back in the Reds’ system.
It will certainly aid his development to hone his craft in such a focal role, particularly if he is given more opportunities by Klopp, with Baraclough remarking on his recent progress.
“I think we are giving Conor a pathway and we’re giving him chances,” he continued.
“We’re helping bring him on and he was a different player in September.
“It seemed like he had grown a couple of inches, was stronger, more confident and he was great around the group.”
The teenager already has three caps for his country, including a competitive debut against Switzerland in September, and is part of the squad to play Switzerland and Bulgaria in World Cup qualifiers this month.
