Liverpool Weekend News Roundup as One Player Leaves Club

Liverpool Weekend News Roundup as One Player Leaves Club

Liverpool continued their pre-season preparations with another friendly on Friday evening. Also, one player departed the club after 16 years. Narrow Friendly Victory Jürgen Klopp's Reds beat one of the boss's former clubs, FSV Mainz, thanks to a late own goal on Friday. Liverpool fielded two entirely different elevens in each half and needed young Mainz player Luca Kilian to put through his own net in the dying minutes for the win. Notably, Klopp started this game with the central-defensive …
Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Heading into this transfer window, there was hope Liverpool would bring in a traditional centre-forward. Someone who could not only fill in for Roberto Firmino but maybe also play alongside him. A player who might’ve been able to give the Reds a bit more of a Plan B. Maybe even someone who might be the one to kickstart the next evolution of this team.  The window is still open for a while, but there are no suggestions that this is …
Curtis Jones - The Next Step

Curtis Jones - The Next Step

There have been many young Liverpool players that were primed to make it to the top, however the list of players that actually make it is rather short. Liverpool cannot simply blood youth and maintain levels, thus the domestic cups and throwaway Champions League games are used to give minutes to certain players. Trent Alexander Arnold represents the current academy graduate that has fully established himself in the first team. His rise through the Liverpool system is a sign that …

Sadio Mané Insists He Is "More Ready" Than Ever After Summer Break

“I think it’s always important as a player to have a break because I can say since I …
Why Harvey Elliott might be a better fit in midfield

Why Harvey Elliott might be a better fit in midfield

Everyone just assumed Harvey Elliott would be the long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah. I imagine it is because both are left-footed and both are better when they’re allowed to cut inside from the right.  However, Elliott impressed in midfield during a pre-season friendly, with Salah deployed in his usual right-wing role. Klopp praised the youngster afterwards when speaking to LFCTV: “I don't think Harvey had ever played that position for us, but he looked good.” What if Elliott is the …

Liverpool About to Take "Next Step" in Pre-Season Preparations

Liverpool continue their pre-season preparations this week with what Reds boss Jürgen Klopp calls the "next step" against Mainz. Klopp will meet up with his former employers FSV Mainz when Liverpool play them on Friday evening. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Klopp discussed the reunion as well as his team's continued progress ahead of the new season:
“That will be a tough one, clear, but no problem. They are good. My former player is the manager there now; again a former player …
James Milner: The Final Year

James Milner: The Final Year

It seems as though he has been around forever, and with one more year on his Liverpool contract, James Milner is still a valuable squad member. His minutes from last season will most probably now drop significantly, but his presence is still an important one for the reds. When leaving Manchester City at 29 years of age (in 2015), it would be fair to say that Milly had already enjoyed a fulfilling career, and could be proud of his achievements. …

Klopp Gives His Verdict on Reds' Two Mini Friendly Performances

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp declared both 30-minute friendlies "important" tests in Austria as The Reds prepare for the season ahead. One Liverpool eleven drew 1-1 with FC Wacker Innsbruck in the first fixture where Divock Origi scored early on from the spot. In the second game, it again finished 1-1 with Sadio Mané providing Liverpool's equaliser after some impressive play from James Milner and Kostas Tsimikas. Speaking with Liverpoolfc.com after the runouts, Klopp said of the two matches:
"It was …
Could Jordan Henderson leave Liverpool?

Could Jordan Henderson leave Liverpool?

The European Championships are over, Wimbledon is done, silly season has well and truly begun. Now, I know it's impossible to *not* read that in Gary Lineker's 'opening line of MOTD voice', but it rings true. With transfer rumours emerging, courtesy of the Athletic, that Jordan Henderson could leave Liverpool this summer, it has sent Reds across the globe into a severe state of confusion. The first question on everyone's lips upon reading the news was - how has this …
Klopp Explains Idea Behind Today's Mini Friendlies

Klopp Explains Idea Behind Today's Mini Friendlies

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp gave his take on the idea behind The Reds' two 30-minute friendlies in Austria later today. Klopp's men face FC Wacker Innsbruck and VfB Stuttgart at 5pm and 5:45pm respectively today. In an in-depth discussion about the potential benefits of the 'mini' friendlies, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com the reasoning behind them:
“I’m so happy we could do that, really. We usually don’t find opponents for that because they say, ‘What would we want with 30 minutes?’ “But …
