Liverpool goalkeeper Jakub Ojrzynski has expressed doubt over his Anfield future after recently returning from a loan spell in the Netherlands.

The 21-year-old Academy prospect spent the season with Den Bosch of the Dutch second tier, featuring a total of 11 times during the course of the campaign. Nine of Ojrzynski's appearances came consecutively between September and November, though the Polish under-20 international lost his place in the team and made only one further appearance from December until May.

Now back on Merseyside after his time away from Liverpool, Ojrzynski is recovering from an injury and remains unsure over what will come next for him as the transfer window start date approaches.

“I am in the final phase of rehabilitation. Fortunately, I am getting closer to returning to full fitness,” he told Echo Dnia. "I’m waiting for the next season. I don’t know yet where I will play next season. I’m still a Liverpool player, we’ll see how it all turns out.”

Prior to last season, the young shot-stopper enjoyed temporary spells at Caernarfon Town and Polish outfit Radomiak Radom, having first joined the Reds from Legia Warsaw in 2019 for a fee of £200,000.

Liverpool have two other Polish keepers on their books who will harbour hopes of following in the footsteps of 2005 Champions League winner Jerzy Dudek. The youngest of this trio, Kornel Misciur, joined last March from Hull City for an undisclosed fee and made his first appearance during a 3-2 victory over Sunderland at under-16s level. He has since trained with the first-team. Also striving to make his mark is Fabian Mrozek, who featured regularly for the under-21s last term.

Discussing the Reds' Polish prodigies in March of last year, Dudek told the ECHO: “We have good coaches and take advantage of the big names. We [Wojciech Szczęsny] started and now everyone is following us, trying to win this ticket from the lottery. Maybe it is a special character you need in that position.”

On his impressions of those hailing from his homeland currently at Liverpool, he added: “I heard about them, and there are many others coming to England.

"We have a good goalkeeping school in Poland and a strong mentality to succeed in this profession. 50 goalkeepers aged 15 and over left Poland last year and that means everyone is trying to be a Dudek or Szczesny.”
