Liverpool’s new staff revealed with 12 coaches spotted in pre-season so far

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sun, 07/14/2024 - 10:29

Arne Slot‘s backroom staff at Liverpool is starting to take shape, with new faces spotted in pre-season alongside coaches who remain from the previous era.

The Reds have finished their first week of pre-season at the AXA Training Centre, with Mohamed Salah the headline name involved so far.

Slot has included a host of youngsters in his sessions as he awaits the return of key players from duty at the Euros and Copa America, allowing the new head coach to chart the future of his squad.

He does so alongside a new-look backroom staff, with This Is Anfield identifying 11 of his support team from pre-season so far.

Those include Sipke Hulshoff and Ruben Peeters, who followed Slot from Feyenoord in the roles of first assistant coach and lead physical performance coach respectively.

Arne Slot – Head coach
Sipke Hulshoff – First assistant coach
Ruben Peeters – Lead physical performance coach
Fabian Otte – Head of first-team goalkeeper coaching
Mark Morris – Goalkeeper coach (usually U21s)
Aaron Briggs – First-team individual development coach
Conall Murtagh – First-team fitness coach
Jack Ade – Head of PDP fitness
Ed Harper – Physical performance coach
Lee Nobes – Head of physiotherapy
Chris Morgan – First-team physiotherapist
Jordan Fairclough – Assistant fitness coach

Newly appointed head of first-team goalkeeper coaching Fabian Otte has arrived after his spell at Copa America with the USA, and he is currently being supported by U21s goalkeeping coach Mark Morris.

Morris’ involvement comes with Claudio Taffarel on a post-season break after his duty as goalkeeping coach for Brazil, and it remains to be seen whether he will be promoted on a full-time basis.

Slot’s coaching staff has also been bolstered by the appointment of Aaron Briggs as first-team individual development coach.

With the early weeks of pre-season primarily concerned with fitness, coaches and physios from that sector have been prominent in these first sessions.

That includes first-team fitness coach Conall Murtagh, head of PDP fitness Jack Ade, physical performance coach Ed Harper and assistant fitness coach Jordan Fairclough.

Ade recently returned to Liverpool after a brief spell as head of performance at Rangers, having previously spent eight years on Merseyside as head of elite fitness development.

Harper, meanwhile, has been with the Reds since 2021, and appears to have taken up a new position after initially serving as a fitness coach.

Lee Nobes remains as head of physiotherapy, while Chris Morgan has been overseeing sessions in the gym in his role as first-team physio.

Slot’s staff is, of course, much larger than that, but those 11 names have already been spotted in pre-season while the remainder work behind the scenes.

Liverpool will be boosted by the return of Taffarel in the coming weeks, while they are still expected to appoint a new first-team coach and a specialist set-piece coach.

Ex-Everton defender John Heitinga is currently in talks with the club over the role of first-team coach, while progress is being made in filling the latter position.

Darwin Nunez's reaction to Luis Suarez's last-minute Uruguay equalizer speaks volumes

Liverpool.com - Sun, 07/14/2024 - 08:21

Not for the first time, Uruguay had Luis Suarez to thank at the Copa America, and Darwin Nunez’s reaction to his dramatic stoppage-time equalizer told you everything you need to know.

Canada appeared to be on the verge of winning the third-place playoff in North Carolina after goals from Ismael Kone and Jonathan David had put them 2-1 up following Rodrigo Bentancur’s opener.

Suarez though struck in the second minute of stoppage time to bring Uruguay level, and take the game to a penalty shootout. The former Liverpool striker then scored his effort from the spot to make it 4-3 after Kone’s miss, with Alphonso Davies then striking the crossbar to hand the victory to Uruguay.

Although it wasn’t the final that Marcelo Bielsa’s side would have hoped to have been in, the victory was nevertheless cause for celebration, especially for Suarez and Nunez.

The latter had started the game just days after being involved in the ugly brawl following the semi-final defeat to Colombia. Nunez is now left waiting to see whether he will be punished for his part in the fight, with the Liverpool star one of 11 players under investigation.

He was replaced at half-time by Suarez, with the 37-year-old making potentially his final appearance for his country, and he certainly made it count. The former Red took home the man of the match award as he saved his side from ending the tournament with another defeat.

And, despite now being on the bench, Nunez was one of the first to celebrate with Suarez after the equalizer in what was quite a poignant moment for the pair.

Nunez looks set to be the man tasked with taking on Suarez’s mantel as his country’s talisman, and he certainly has a lot to live up to. The love for Suarez from the Uruguay players was clear to see as he was lifted up by his teammates at full-time.

Liverpool.com says: As we’ve seen at Liverpool, Nunez still has a long way to go before he can be considered to be in the same bracket at Suarez. With the former Red looking likely to be hanging up his boots soon though, it’s a huge moment for Nunez, who now has to step up to the plate for both club and country. Of course, that might depend on any potential punishment coming his way, but Suarez has shown what he needs to do now.

Arne Slot and FSG will have close eye on five players in Euro 2024 final

Liverpool.com - Sun, 07/14/2024 - 08:00

Liverpool boss Arne Slot will have his eye on several players during the Euro 2024 final on Sunday. The game is set to be held in Berlin and will feature England and Spain, with several transfer targets and current Liverpool players set to feature.

The obvious names such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez could be in line to play a role for Gareth Southgate's side, who squeezed past the Netherlands in the semi-finals thanks to a late winner from Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins. Away from the Reds duo, Slot will also be paying close attention to several players who have regularly been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months.

Staying in the England camp, Newcastle United and former Everton man Anthony Gordon will likely watch on from the bench once again on Sunday evening. The Liverpool-born winger has only played two minutes during the tournament but Slot will keep an eye out regardless, as Gordon continues to be linked with a return to Merseyside with Liverpool.

In terms of Spain, both Dani Olmo and Nico Williams have been touted as possible options for Liverpool to turn to this summer, as Slot seeks additional attacking reinforcements with the futures of Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah yet to be determined. The Spanish duo have impressed throughout the tournament and if Liverpool is to pursue one of these players - or both - the Reds will face heavy competition from the likes of Manchester City, Aston Villa and Chelsea.

According to The Mirror, Olmo has a release clause of around $64million (£50m/€58m) which is set to expire next Monday. Liverpool is one of many clubs currently monitoring the situation, with City and Chelsea believed to be ahead of Slot's side in the running.

"I am calm and focused on what is coming, which is the Euro, which is no small thing," Olmo said regarding his future recently. "It is clear that it is good to see your name related to great teams in Europe and the world, that motivates me, but I am focused on the Euro and I hope we can return with the trophy.

"Then we'll see. It's nice to see your name related to the greats, but I insist, it's nothing that bothers me. I am focused on the field and then whatever has to be, will be. We are very close now, one step away from glory.

"We planned the game very well and, although we conceded a goal, we knew how to react with the spectacular goal from Lamine [Yamal] and then with my own. And in the second half we knew how to control it."

Liverpool.com says: Watching the Euro 2024 final could provide vital information to Slot and his coaching staff as to how these young talents perform under pressure - in regards to both possible targets and the players in his current squad.

Adrien Rabiot approach

Liverpool is among three clubs to have been approached by Adrien Rabiot's representatives about a potential transfer, according to HITC.

The midfielder is a free agent after his contract at Juventus expired, and the Italian club does not plan on making another contract offer after receiving no response prior to Euro 2024.

It's now suggested that Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all been approached to make them aware of the 29-year-old's situation. Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and AC Milan have also been linked elsewhere.
