Jürgen Klopp on the arrival of Sepp van den Berg

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 17:59

Jürgen Klopp has detailed his satisfaction with the signing of Sepp van den Berg and the teenager's decision to take on the challenge of moving to Liverpool.

The defender joined his new teammates for the opening day of pre-season on Saturday having completed a transfer from PEC Zwolle last month.

After the customary lactate tests and movement exercises at Melwood to mark the start of his Reds career, the Dutchman himself reflected on his positive impression of his new surroundings.

And the manager is eager to see how Van den Berg builds on the opportunity in his hands.

“He is a big talent but a young boy and we already have a good team,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com. “He took the challenge, he really wanted to be part of this and I’m really happy for him.

“We make signings for immediately or for the future and it’s always about the boys, what they make of it. The first impression here was really good and I’m happy to have him around.”

Sepp van den Berg reflects on his first day at Melwood

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 15:59

Sepp van den Berg has revealed how the welcome he received from his new teammates and staff at Melwood on Saturday helped him overcome any first-day nerves he had.

The 17-year-old, who finalised a move from PEC Zwolle last month, was a fresh face among the 16 players that reported to Liverpool’s training ground as pre-season preparations got under way.

Van den Berg met his fellow Reds for the first time, as well as the club’s backroom team and Jürgen Klopp, before taking part in the day’s workouts.

Reflecting on the day, Van den Berg told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s been great. When I walked in, I was quite nervous, but I talked to the players and the staff and I feel at home. It feels good.

“Everybody has been really nice to me, they all said 'hi' and helped me if I had any questions, so it feels a really nice place.

“Jürgen came to me when I walked in, too, so I’m really excited.”

A clip of Van den Berg’s meeting with Klopp was published on the club’s official social media accounts, receiving a positive reaction from supporters.

He joked: “I saw it on my phone! Already viral!”

“I’d only seen him on TV only when I was sat at home, so seeing him in real life… I think everybody could see I was nervous, but he is a really nice guy. I feel really comfortable with him.”

Van den Berg joined his new teammates in the gruelling lactate drill, as well as strength testing.

“It was tough,” the defender admitted. “The first day of pre-season was a little easier where I came from, but it’s good. Tough, but very good.

“I feel great. As I said, I already feel really at home here and that’s a big thing for me. I am just looking forward; I am going to train hard and hopefully I will play some minutes here.”

Jürgen Klopp explains the next steps for Oxlade-Chamberlain and Brewster

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 14:59

Jürgen Klopp described Rhian Brewster and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as 'new players' for 2019-20 as pre-season got under way at Melwood on Saturday.

The pair were part of the first group that returned to training in West Derby as the champions of Europe started their preparations for the forthcoming campaign.

Both players have, of course, recovered from long-term injuries sustained in 2018 and were named as substitutes for the Champions League final win over Tottenham Hotspur last month.

Klopp has Brewster and Oxlade-Chamberlain firmly in his plans for the season ahead and they, along with the likes of Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana, represent immediate added quality to his squad according to the manager.

“If Ox can stay fit – new player for us,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com.

“Rhian the same; he is a really big talent. We’re really looking forward to seeing him in training and all that stuff. It will be an important role for us, we planned an important role for him. So, new player.

“Like Joe Gomez is pretty much a new player. Adam Lallana, new player. After a lot of problems last year, if these boys can really stay fit then that’s completely different to last year for the team because there is real quality. That’s cool.”

Watch: Klopp on start of pre-season, 'new players' and more

Klopp continued: “Hopefully we can use the time to give them the time because it’s a while ago they had competitive games. We start pretty intensely with Tranmere, getting promoted.

“After a few days’ training, playing that game against a League One team is a challenge. Then Bradford and then we really go for it.

“You play these games not only for doing something in these 90 minutes, you want to see a few things: improvement, desire and all that stuff.

“We have to be ready early, we start the league on Friday night against Norwich – we have to be ready and that’s not the only game we prepare for, of course.”

Naby Keita injury update

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 11:59

Liverpool expect Naby Keita to be fit to begin his pre-season training programme later this month.

The midfielder sustained a minor adductor strain during Africa Cup of Nations duty with Guinea.

The injury ended Keita’s participation in the tournament and he returned to Melwood for further examination by the club’s medical team.

However, he is set to be ready to start pre-season training as planned when back on Merseyside following an end-of-season break later in July.

Sadio Mane sends Senegal into Africa Cup of Nations quarters

Fri, 07/05/2019 - 22:05

Sadio Mane's clinical finish sent Senegal into the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations on Friday night with a victory over Uganda.

The Liverpool forward scored the only goal of the last-16 tie in Cairo, Egypt – his third strike of the tournament so far.

Collecting a pass at the edge of the opposition area in the 15th minute, Mane deftly clipped a shot across the goalkeeper for what proved to be the winner.

The 27-year-old also saw a penalty saved on the hour mark but his first-half effort was enough to guide his country into the next round.

Senegal will now face Benin, who eliminated Morocco on penalties earlier in the day. That game will take place on Wednesday July 10.

Liverpool 'to make £45m bid' for Dani Ceballos

Fri, 07/05/2019 - 15:18

Liverpool are ready to make a £45million bid for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, according to reports from Spain.

The Los Blancos star is a Reds target but the Anfield club were against making a bid for him due to Real Madrid's negotiation demands.

Spanish publication Marca reported that Real Madrid are insistent that a buyback clause is inserted in the deal to take Ceballos to Liverpool.

The La Liga giants reportedly believe that the Spain Under-21 international has the potential to one day lead their midfield, but currently his first team opportunities are limited.

A buyback clause enables Real Madrid to part company with the midfielder for a hefty fee - in the region of £45m - before re-signing him for a good price, should Ceballos develop.

Liverpool were against this idea as it offers them very little protection in terms of keeping hold of the player and earning good money for him in the future.

But Marca, via SportWitness, is now reporting that Liverpool have had a change of heart.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be such a fan of the Spaniard that he is willing to overlook the buyback clause and is ready to make a bid to sign Ceballos.

What's more, the buyback clause would be considerably higher than the £45million the Reds would pay to sign the 22-year-old in the first place.

Jürgen Klopp wants transfer for 'next Xabi Alonso'

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 12:47

Jurgen Klopp is ready to make a move for the 'next Xabi Alonso at Liverpool', according to reports from Spain.

The Reds boss has signed just one player so far this summer - Sepp van den Berg for £1.3million - but has hinted he could open the chequebook before the window slams shut.

One man who has been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer is Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

The 22-year-old isn't guaranteed first team football at the Bernabeu this season, and a number of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham are also taking a look at the Spaniard.

Klopp is believed to be interested in signing the Real Betis graduate.

But according to Marca, via SportWitness, who have claimed the Spaniard can become the 'next Xabi Alonso' at Anfield, there is a problem that could derail the deal.

The paper reports that Klopp is only interested in the transfer if the Reds can buy the midfielder outright.

The German doesn't want a buy-back clause included in the deal. Real Madrid however do as they feel Ceballos could one day lead their midfield.

What's more, Ceballos reportedly shares this view and would only agree to a Liverpool transfer if such a clause was put in place.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham chasing Dani Ceballos

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 09:24

Real Madrid are ready to let Dani Ceballos leave the club with Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool all reportedly interested in the talented youngster.

Ceballos is coming off the back of a victorious tournament with Spain at the European Under-21 Championship but the midfielder is reportedly not in Zinedine Zidane’s plans at Real Madrid next season.

The 22-year-old’s situation at the Bernabeu is being monitored by several big clubs across Europe, but according to Spanish publication Marca, it is the Premier League clubs of Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool who are top of list in competing for his signature.

The report suggests Tottenham are in pole position to sign the player.

Ceballos could even become part of a deal for Christian Eriksen, who only has one year left on his contract and is showing no interest in renewing his contract with Spurs.

Tottenham are looking to sell the Dane this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing next year, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly reducing the club’s asking price for Eriksen from £134m to £62m.

When asked about his plans for next season Ceballos, who scored three goals for Real in 13 La Liga starts in their last campaign, insisted he is prioritising playing time and being at a team where he is wanted.

“The most important thing in this life is to be happy and it is something that can only be achieved by playing 40 games a year,” he told Marca.

“My personal goal for next season is to play 40 games, to get comfortable with myself at all times.

“Wherever it is, but in a place where I can feel valued.”

Ceballos is also wanted by Arsenal, who are reportedly trying the hardest of all the current clubs involved to sign the midfielder.

However, as Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking at strengthening several areas of his squad on a limited transfer budget of £45m, the report suggests the club favour a loan deal with an option to buy Ceballos at a later date.

It is not known whether this option would be acceptable to Real as Zidane is still looking to raise money to fund more transfers as he puts the finishing touches on his new-look side for next season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is also interested Ceballos but given the competition for places in the Champions League winners' squad the German might struggle to offer the Spaniard the minutes he is demanding.

One issue to any possible transfer could be Real’s preference to include a buy-back option in any deal, but the interested teams will no doubt be boosted by Ceballos' recent comments.

Upon returning from winning the under-21 Euros he insisted he had “no specific” league in mind for his next move but isn’t worried about leaving Spain.

“What I know is that I want to enjoy next year and I am open to try new experiences, I am not afraid,” he said.

“I know that next year I have a very nice challenge ahead.

“I would like to try new things and, above all, enjoy a lot.”
