Wes Brown is no longer a regular starter in Blackburn Rovers as the veteran defender has started taking up a more tactical role with the English Championship League club by forming part of the Blackburn Rovers Under-23s and Academy staff and the experienced defender has recently gone out to praise one of the rising stars of the youth academy.
Scott Wharton is a 19 year old defender that has already made his debut with the first team of Blackburn Rovers and Wes Brown believes that Scott has what it takes to become a top player if he continues playing and developing how he has been in the past few years.
“I remember the first game Scotty played in this season (against Burton Albion) and I thought he did really well. It’s very different for defenders, because if you make a mistake then you’re in trouble, but he’s been excellent. He’s been excellent in the games, excellent in training, and I’m sure the gaffer has got faith in him and will play him.
Scott has not only been given playing time for the English League Championship but also in the English League Cup and this shows just how much confidence that all of the head chiefs of Blackburn Rovers have placed on the rising star who was recently praised by Wes Brown as the veteran player is certain that Scott Wharton can become a mainstay for Blackburn Rovers who can help them in winning titles and do great things for the club.
Whether or not Scott Wharton is able to live up to all the expectations that is being placed by his fellow teammates and coaches is something that remains to be seen and only time will tell but he has plenty of time to prove his worth at the big stage.
