LiverpoolFC.TV - 5 hours 35 min ago

Liverpool and Manchester United target Kai Havertz is set to reject a move to the Premier League and join Bayern Munich once the transfer window opens, according to reports in Germany.

The 20-year-old is highly sought-after by clubs all over Europe after a scintillating breakthrough campaign for Bayer Leverkusen last season in which he scored 20 goals and registered seven assists, earning him a call up to the Germany national team.

Kavertz hasn't quite recaptured those same standards this season but is still a top priority in the Bavarian's plans for a new-look squad and the attacking midfielder is eager to make the move happen, according to Sky in Germany.

Paul Glatzel nearing Liverpool return after “tough” season out with injury

ThisIsAnfield.com - 8 hours 50 min ago

Paul Glatzel is one of those who could benefit from the suspension of the campaign as the Liverpool youngster nears a return from a season-long ACL injury.

The 19-year-old has been sidelined since the first friendly of pre-season, having damaged his ACL in the 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers, five minutes after his role in Bobby Duncan’s goal.

It has been a frustrating season for the striker, who scored 29 goals in 34 games for the academy in 2018/19, but one offered a glimmer of optimism as he was called up to the first-team setup on a full-time basis.

He has been undergoing his rehabilitation at Melwood, rather than Kirkby, but for now is restricted to his home as with the rest of the UK.

Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com via video link, Glatzel revealed that he is “basically at the end of his rehab” and that by now he was “meant to be back training,” which is certainly a positive sign for when the campaign eventually resumes.

“I should have been back around now but obviously with what is going on it’s not possible at the moment,” he explained.

“So I’m just making sure I do my fitness stuff I’ve been sent from the club and just waiting for all this to take its course and then be back on the pitch when we’re allowed.”

Rather than join the first team for their training sessions on Zoom, Glatzel is spending this period as part of the under-23s group, with the squad all connecting at 9.30am every day.

The work he is able to do at home is no doubt restricted, but the extended time off could benefit the youngster as he eyes a return to the field before the season’s delayed end.

“I’d hope to be able to get a few training sessions in pretty soon when we come back,” he added.

“I’ll probably have to do a little bit more rehab and then hopefully get back into training. Then wait and see what happens.

“Hopefully I can get a few minutes but I’ll just have to see what happens and focus on getting back to full fitness.”

It is a silver lining for some players in a difficult time, with the likes of Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri also able to work on their recovery while in isolation.

Glatzel’s initial target was a comeback in time for next pre-season, which could still be more realistic after a “tough” time out that has seen him look to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for inspiration.

“The injury I’ve had has been a long injury, I’ve not kicked a ball since the start of pre-season,” he said.

“It has been a tough one to take because I was doing quite well before that. I’ve just got to make sure I get my sessions in and be patient because time is a healer in this sense.

“I just need to wait for my injury to be sorted and to heal properly so that when I come back the risk of me getting injured again is much, much lower and I can just focus on my football again.”

The key for Glatzel is that when he is fit again he should be part of Klopp’s senior squad preparing for 2020/21, and a long time on the sidelines can at least steel him for a renewed effort to break through.

But for now, with both of his parents working for the NHS, he has joined the calls to stress: “You just need to be prepared to stay at home for as long as it takes, to make sure fewer people are affected.”

Liverpool loanee on ‘social distancing’ training in Germany – “can’t believe” its success

ThisIsAnfield.com - 9 hours 15 min ago

Mainz are among the clubs to have returned to training under social distancing measures in Germany, with Liverpool’s Taiwo Awoniyi explaining its positive impact.

Football has been suspended across the majority of Europe during the coronavirus pandemic, but the Bundesliga is closer to resumption than many other leagues.

Clubs in the German top flight reported back for training last week but on a limited basis, with players required to maintain social distancing and sessions based around non-contact areas of the game.

Pictures emerged from Bayern Munich’s training ground to highlight how this is being put into place, and now Awoniyi has provided further context.

Awoniyi joined Jurgen Klopp‘s former club Mainz on a season-long loan last summer, and though he has made just six appearances for the 15th-placed side is still part of Achim Beierlorzer’s squad.

The Nigerian told Omasports that he “can’t believe” it has been possible to resume training on a non-contact basis, and that “it feels good because we all can feel the ball again.”

“The Germans have always been professional and the training has been more like passing drills,” he explained.

“We are keeping social distance, nobody is touching each other and everything is under strict conditions.

“The monitoring is strict, and those drills don’t need contact.

“It feels good because we all can feel the ball again—and everyone can be safe in the end, which is most important for us.

“Everyone has been indoors for a while and it’s same everywhere around the world. We have to follow the instructions we are given.

“At Mainz, the way everything is being conducted has shown how Germans are and how professional they are as a club.

“It was a good training session for everyone. I can’t believe we can play football without contact.”

The DFL have proposed that the Bundesliga returns in early May, with games played behind closed doors, and a successful returning to social-distanced training is a step in the right direction.

“We are happy about it but we will be more glad when everything comes back to normal, when the whole virus is gone and I pray everything returns to normal for everyone,” Awoniyi continued.

“Kudos to the medical staff. For us, we have to stay safe at home and on the pitch, but it feels good to touch the ball again.

“I hope everything will be back to normal for everyone in the end.”

The Bundesliga is set to serve as blueprint for other European leagues to follow, and though the Premier League is more likely to reconvene later, clubs in England are expected to take a similar approach.

Awoniyi’s comments highlight the positive effect it can have on the morale of players, which could be particularly key in the Premier League due to the ridiculous pressure they have been put under by the government.

To simply “touch the ball again” and be able to rejoin their team-mates—albeit under strict guidelines—could be a big development for people effectively relied upon as a vital source of entertainment during a turbulent time.

Agent of former Liverpool star makes PL transfer admission

HEAD NEWS - 9 hours 23 min ago

The agent of Philippe Coutinho has suggested the former Liverpool star is open to a Premier League return this summer.

And Coutinho's representative feels the Brazil international could also be available at a cut-price fee.

The 27-year-old left Anfield for Barcelona in January 2018 for what was the biggest transfer fee ever received by a British club at £142million, but he struggled to consistently replicate his form at Camp Nou.

FA confirm controversial decision to ensure season is over for Liverpool loanee

ThisIsAnfield.com - 9 hours 44 min ago

The FA have ratified their decision to end Steps 3 to 7 of the National League system and expunge all results for 2019/20, effectively ending one Liverpool loanee’s season.

It had been previously announced towards the end of March that the FA intended to conclude the campaign early for leagues from Step 3 down, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And after a vote by the FA Council, this has now been ratified, with no champions, promotion or relegation determined as all results have been wiped off.

The ruling was said to be “overwhelmingly in favour of ratifying the decision” and is described as the “most appropriate way” to act following the suspension of football in England.

A total of 92 leagues have been prematurely ended, therefore, with Step 3 comprised of the Northern Premier League‘s Premier Division, the Southern League’s Central and South Divisions and the Isthmian League’s Premier Division.

Step 4 includes the Northern Premier League‘s Division One North West, which has been home to Liverpool loanee Dan Atherton since the January transfer window.

Atherton took over duties from Shamal George as Marine FC’s on-loan Reds ‘keeper at the start of the year, and impressed as No. 1 in Crosby.

Though a popular figure at the academy, competition for places from the likes of Vitezslav Jaros, Ben Winterbottom and Jakub Ojrzynski saw the 20-year-old play just four times for the under-23s in the first half of the campaign.

The decision to expunge the majority of the National League system has been met with widespread criticism, with Geoff Thompson, chairman of South Shields FC in the Northern Premier League‘s Premier Division, confirming he was planning legal action.

Meanwhile, Kate Osborne, Labour MP for Jarrow, Tyne and Wear said she was “extremely disappointed” as “the season could have quite easily been reconvened when the pandemic had finished.”

Atherton’s time at Marine was designed to aid his progress at a crucial stage, providing him with first-team experience in a physically demanding league.

Now he will be required to reassess on his arrival back at Liverpool, with a big summer ahead.

Liverpool target Diego Carlos compared to Napoli ace

HEAD NEWS - 9 hours 45 min ago

Liverpool transfer target Diego Carlos is known in Spain as 'The Beast' - and has been compared to highly-rated Napoli centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly.

Carlos has been identified as a possible summer target for Liverpool, with manager Jurgen Klopp reportedly believing the Sevilla defender can complete his back four playing alongside Virgil van Dijk.

The 27-year-old has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona and has declared he would only leave Sevilla for "a much bigger club" - but world and European champions Liverpool certainly come into that category.
