LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 05/08/2020 - 12:52

Coveted Napoli captain Kalidou Koulibaly has become a summer transfer target for Liverpool, according to reports in France.

Koulibaly is widely regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football and the Reds have emerged as front-runners to secure his signature at the end of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain have been watching the 28-year-old throughout the 2019-20 campaign, but it is understood the player would prefer a move to the Premier League.

LFC Academy supports Deaf Awareness week

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 05/08/2020 - 11:55

The continuing lockdown has allowed some of Liverpool FC’s Academy players to start learning a new skill – sign language.

A number of the Reds’ U18 squad have been teaching themselves a few of the basics of sign language so they could send a message of support to the children at Knotty Ash Primary School in the city.

Their efforts have now been collated into a video, which you can watch below, which is being shared with the pupils today to celebrate Deaf Awareness Week.

Among those taking part from Barry Lewtas' squad are Matteo Ritaccio, Billy Koumetio, Conor Bradley, Tom Hill and captain Fidel O'Rourke.

The players were able to follow special instructional videos sent across from the school via deputy head Chris England, signed by a pupil and a teacher.

Knotty Ash has a deaf resource base and welcomes pupils with both profound deafness or full hearing as well as different levels in between.

Head teacher Roanne Clements-Bedson said: "We’re a relatively small school with 17 pupils with a profound level of deafness, others with different levels of hearing who use speech and 230 hearing pupils.

"All of our pupils use British Sign Language so they can communicate with each other. It has a massive positive impact on inclusion and the acceptance that our children learn here.

"It really elevates the school and signing has equal standing in everything we do here."

Knotty Ash has been closed during the Coronavirus outbreak with many of the teachers working at the special teaching hubs that Liverpool has set up to continue schooling the children of key workers.

Ms Clements-Bedson is recovering from the virus herself after being briefly hospitalised and feels the LFC players' video will be a big hit with her pupils.

"Our children will be so chuffed, they will all love it! For our deaf children in particular, people who value signing are heroes to them.

"Making the effort to communicate will go down brilliantly. We’ve got lots of football fans and lots of Liverpool fans at the school.”

Phil Roscoe, the Academy’s head of player care, said the club was delighted to send their support to all the pupils.

He said: "We’re really pleased to support Deaf Awareness week.

"Obviously the squad is apart at the moment but it’s brilliant that we’ve had videos coming in from players around the world, from the USA to France to Northern Ireland and of course here in Liverpool.

"We hope the pupils really enjoy it.”

Military Veterans raise Union Jack at Anfield in honour of VE Day 75

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 05/08/2020 - 10:29

Earlier today, two former soldiers from LFC Foundation's Military Veterans programme raised the Union Jack on the Kop at Anfield in honour of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day).

Warrant Officer John Hughes from the Royal Logistic Corps and Corporal Sean Connolly from the Royal Tank Regiment raised the national flag of the United Kingdom and saluted the Union Jack to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Warrant Officer Hughes served for 23 years in the British Army, originally joining the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, which later amalgamated to form the Royal Logistic Corps in 1993. He conducted two tours of Northern Ireland, one tour of Bosnia and one tour of Belize. During his time in the Royal Logistic Corps, he was also deployed to Cyprus and Canada.

Corporal Connolly served 13 years in the Royal Tank Regiment – the oldest tank regiment in the world formed by the British Army in 1916 during the First World War. During his time in the Royal Tank Regiment, he undertook two tours of Iraq and two tours of Afghanistan. He was also deployed to Kosovo, Canada, and Germany.

Both ex-servicemen regularly attend LFC Foundation’s Military Veterans programme, which helps to support and re-engage ex-military service men and women back into civilian life through the power of football.

LFC would like to thank Warrant Officer Hughes and Corporal Connolly for their help with today’s commemorations.

Milot Rashica fills the Jurgen Klopp criteria

HEAD NEWS - Fri, 05/08/2020 - 09:56

Transfer rumours can come and go in the breeze but there will be a couple which stick around for far longer every summer.

If Timo Werner is the player most strongly linked with a move to Liverpool at the moment, then Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica is almost certainly next in line.

The 23-year old Kosova international has been rumoured to be of interest to the Reds for a few months now, and Liverpool are not the only club who are said to have him on their transfer shortlist. It has recently been reported that the likes of RB Leipzig and Southampton are also keen to secure the versatile left-winger.
