'We want to have him for the next 15 years'

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 17:42

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has paid tribute to Joe Gomez's versatility and declared: 'We want to have him for the next 15 years'.

The 20-year-old received his first senior caps for England over the course of the last week, coming from the bench in a 0-0 friendly draw with Germany and then starting at centre-back in another stalemate with Brazil. 

Gomez's Three Lions call-up came as a result of his showings at right-back for the Reds this season, but he proved himself a capable performer in the middle during the latter fixture.

When asked if he considered the defender ready to take on that role in his own team, Klopp replied: "Yes, no doubt about it."

The German went on to insist Gomez still has areas of his game to work on, though he is hoping the No.12 makes Anfield his home for the remainder of his career.

"Joe knows about his still existing little issues, he is still a young lad and he has to improve in a lot of parts but of course he is ready for it," he added.

"He is a fantastic player and he played a lot in the season so we take care of him.

"He was injured in a time in his life when people are still growing and that's a medical [issue] kind of.

"We want to have him for the next 15 years, we want to have him here for a long time and use him.

"He's ready for [centre-back] but he can play as full-back and that’s very good for us."

Jürgen Klopp 'feeling really good' as he praises hospital staff

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 17:01

Jürgen Klopp insists he is ‘feeling really good’ after attending a hospital appointment on Wednesday as a precautionary measure - and thanked and praised local NHS staff for their care.

The boss missed Wednesday’s training session at Melwood as a result, but returned to take the following day’s workout ahead of this weekend’s head-to-head with Southampton at Anfield.

And speaking at his pre-match press conference today, Klopp was in jovial mood as he discussed his hospital visit - and was eager to highlight the attention he recieved from NHS staff.

He said: “I feel really good. Actually, I am 50 now and maybe I should get used to it, I am not sure! I was twice already in a British hospital and whatever people say about it, the NHS is not as bad as you think!

“I really have to thank a lot of people; not because it was that serious, but really because they were that nice and that’s it.

“There is nothing to say about it - I am not ill. I think it is kind of good news! It’s all fine.

“The only problem is you should not try to experience a hospital as a person in [the] public [eye]… to go somewhere, to hospital or something, and the whole world is talking about it. It was not a marketing thing for Liverpool, but it would have been smart!

“I came in the hospital and then when I passed the first few people, I saw the security and then heard, ‘Klopp is in hospital! Did you see him?’ so they turned their walkie-talkies down! That worked really well!”

Klopp on Lallana return: I have to be the bad guy

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 17:00

Jürgen Klopp has admitted he won't relish playing the role of 'the bad guy' when taking a cautious approach with the return of the fit-again Adam Lallana.

But the Liverpool boss insists he is aiming to protect the midfielder and boost his team's prospects in the long term by delaying a potential comeback.

Lallana has been sidelined since suffering a thigh injury during the Reds' penultimate pre-season fixture - a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid in Munich.

However, the 29-year-old returned to full team training this week and could be in contention to face Southampton on Saturday, though his manager is in no rush whatsoever.

Klopp told reporters: "It is completely different to Sadio, for example. He was much longer out. 

"It was in the pre-season in Munich against Atletico Madrid, it's long ago. He's a fantastic player but we want to have him for the season. 

"This is the moment where the player wants to be back immediately and I am the bad guy who says, 'not today, maybe tomorrow'. 

"That's not too nice but it's completely normal; I only do it for him and for the club, that’s how it is. What can I say? We will see. 

"It depends how the other players are with shape, how fit they are. We will use him for sure but bringing him now for 90 minutes is not a good idea and will not happen."

Klopp was also quizzed on Lallana's importance as a trigger for the high press that is a key aspect of his team's tactical approach.

But, while the boss acknowledged that fact, he pointed out that the No.20 has much more in his locker than just work-rate.

"[He is] very, very important. Last year it was difficult when Adam didn’t play because what he does is so different to pretty much all the other players," he added.

"He is the 'jumper' [in the press] and loves to do that. Of course, he is very important for us and we are already looking forward to when he can use him again. 

"But it is not only that, he is a fantastic football player, that was [clear] from the first session [when he returned].

"Unfortunately, I was not involved, but when I came in, they were all really excited about it. They said, 'Adam was pretty good!'"

LFC injury update: Mane, Lallana, Henderson and Clyne latest

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 16:31

Liverpool will check on the condition of Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana before deciding whether they’ll be involved against their former club Southampton on Saturday – but Jordan Henderson will return.

Mane came back early from international duty with Senegal after slightly feeling a recent hamstring injury again, while Lallana has this week begun full training with his teammates after missing all of 2017-18 to date with a thigh issue.

Both will be assessed before the squad is finalised for the Premier League encounter, though the Reds will be boosted by the return of Henderson after recovering from a thigh complaint of his own.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Jürgen Klopp said: “Sadio we have to wait, we will see today.

“Adam is in training now since three days or four days [ago]. It was a really long [time], it is fantastic that he is back. He lost nothing, no skills or anything. He trained really well but in the next few weeks we have games every three days and we will need him for that.

“There is no rush in it even when everyone who knows Adam can imagine how ready he is to be part of the squad again, so we will see what we do in this case.

“Hendo, yes, should be OK I think. He used the week he had in the national break, he used it well to recover from different things to be honest. Now he is on a good way and, yes, will be involved.”

Elsewhere, Liverpool confirmed earlier this week Nathaniel Clyne had undergone minor back surgery on an injury that has sidelined him since July.

Klopp continued: “Clyney, things like this happen. All the specialists agreed we should try it the conservative way without the surgery, and now everybody agreed we now had to use it.

“We are all sure Clyney will be fine, but when he will be back it will have been a long time for him. That’s not to change anymore and he is already in the last period of the recovery from the issue.

“Now we made the surgery, it is clear that he will be back round about and that’s good. Of course for him, it’s difficult.”

View from the player, Lloyd Jones

"It has been a really positive season for us so far. We are top of Premier League 2, scoring a lot of goals and not conceding many, and it's good to see a lot of young lads coming through.

"Every day in training we are trying to improve and improving each other. The intensity has been really strong, we had a really good pre-season and we have taken that into the season.

Reds launch sensory room at Anfield

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 14:00

LFC will launch a new sensory room at Anfield this weekend for fans to access on a matchday.

The new sensory room, which will be based in the Kenny Dalglish Stand, will comprise a range of specialist equipment and has been created to enable people with a sensory need such as autism to experience football matches in a comfortable environment suitable for their needs.

Some of the newly purchased portable equipment includes; a sensory portable bubble tube and light unit, fibre optic carpet, a projector and an LED bean bag.

The new facility was made possible by funding from the Premier League and BT, who working with the Shippey Campaign, want to encourage the creation of sensory rooms at all Premier League clubs.

This followed the successful introduction of a sensory room at Sunderland AFC in 2015-16, which enabled Nathan Shippey, who has autism, to experience football matches in a comfortable and appropriate environment. LFC are the fourth top-flight club to open a sensory room, and utilise the funding of specialist equipment from the Premier League and BT.

The first official use of the new sensory room, which will be able to accommodate four fans and four carers at a time, will take place at the Reds’ fixture against Southampton on Saturday.

Simon Thornton, LFC’s diversity and inclusion officer, said: “We are delighted to be officially launching our new sensory room, which has been in development for a while. We are committed to being as inclusive and accessible as possible and we believe that this new facility will provide more of our fans with the opportunity to experience watching a live game at Anfield.

”I would like to thank Autism Together for their advice and guidance on our new facility and the Premier League and BT for their generous donation, which has made this project possible.”

Yvonne Crowhurst, head of charity Autism Together's Autism Training and Advisory Service, added: "It's fantastic to have such an iconic Liverpool institution as Liverpool FC on board as an Autism Champion. It really means something when the big names show they're listening to the autism community. One in every 100 people in Liverpool are on the autism spectrum and it's our job to make sure this city shows they are accepted and gives them a warm welcome, whether they're using public transport, taking in a film, eating out, shopping or going to a game.

"The team at Anfield have demonstrated that small changes can make a huge difference to people on the spectrum. The new sensory room will mean that people with autism can watch a game in their own way, in a quieter, calmer environment. I'm sure the box will be visited, over the years, by many people who never thought they'd be able to come to a match. It'll bring them and their families so much joy. We hope other clubs around the country will follow Liverpool FC's lead."

The sensory room will be available on a trial basis at a number of games during the remainder of the 2017-18 season. Fans who would like to access the new facility should register their interest via disability@liverpoolfc.com. Details of your disability will be required.

Tickets for the sensory room will be priced at £40 for the disabled supporter. A complimentary personal assistant ticket will also be provided.  

Depending on demand for the facility, a rota will be established amongst registered supporters to ensure that it is made available to as many of our fans as possible.

For more information about accessing the sensory room fans should contact the disability ticketing team on disability@liverpoolfc.com or 0151 264 2500 (press option 2).

Liverpool become Diversity Champions

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 13:00

Liverpool FC has signed up to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion, becoming the first Premier League club to join the programme.

Stonewall, Europe’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, works with more than 750 organisations to help them create workplaces that are inclusive and welcoming of LGBT people. 

As a Diversity Champion, the club will receive expert consultation and advice from one of Stonewall’s client account managers. 

Working together, LFC and Stonewall will review current polices, practices and staff training and work on reinforcing the club as a workplace where everyone can be themselves. 

Committing to be a Diversity Champion is another progressive step for the club, which was also rewarded this year with an accolade from the Premier League.

In May, LFC became the first club to achieve the Advanced Level the Premier League Equality Standard, recognising the commitment of club leadership to equality, diversity and inclusion, the development of inclusive policy and procedures as well as the great work of LFC’s community programme, Red Neighbours and the club’s official charity, LFC Foundation. 
 
The club’s commitment comes just weeks before Stonewall holds its annual Rainbow Laces campaign, which will see sport across the UK turn rainbow from November 24 to December 3 in support of the LGBT community.  

Peter Moore, CEO of LFC, said: "Liverpool FC has long been committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and to ensuring that it is embedded in all areas across the club and we are delighted to be spearheading Stonewall’s Diversity Champion programme. 

"We believe that sport should be inclusive and that nobody should miss out simply because of who they are. From our club charity’s inclusive sports programmes to achieving the Premier League’s Advanced Equality Standard this year, we are proud to keep striving to make sport for everyone."

Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s chief executive, added: "It’s so important for organisations to actively work towards making sport everyone’s game. Many LGBT people want to take part in sport, either as players or fans, but at the moment not everyone feels welcome.

"We also know that most sports fans want a better, more inclusive game. To make this happen, we need individuals and organisations to step up to show their support for LGBT people and that’s what Liverpool FC have done today. We’re excited they’ve joined us as a Diversity Champion and we look forward to working with them to help further LGBT equality in football."

'Returning to Anfield will be very special... I'll always be grateful to LFC'

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 12:25

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino acknowledges his return to Anfield on Saturday will be a special moment.

The Saints boss made 13 appearances for Liverpool as player during a five-month spell with the club in the Champions League-winning 2004-05 season.

Pellegrino later returned to Merseyside to work alongside Rafael Benitez as a first-team coach from 2008 for two years.

Now he will head back to Anfield in the opposition dugout when Liverpool take on Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

“It will be really, really special, and not just about football because I had been living there with my family, my children in the school, in the streets,” said the Pellegrino.

“It’s not just about football, it’s about the people and I have got good memories, I know the people that is working there. My only words is to be grateful.

“As a first experience in my life in England first of all as a player I think it was really good.

“I had good memories from this moment because we won the Champions League and I was in this group.

“After as a coach it was my first experience also to be in contact with professional players with Rafa Bentiez, and I can say I am really grateful for those days, for those times.”

''World-class' Phil and Adam are so important to us'

Fri, 17/11/2017 - 11:30

The impending returns of ‘world-class’ duo Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana are coming at the perfect time as Liverpool prepare for the busiest period of the season, Ragnar Klavan believes.

Coutinho was ruled out of the Reds’ last three games prior to the international break due to an adductor issue, but played nearly 70 minutes of Brazil’s 0-0 friendly draw against England on Tuesday.

Lallana, meanwhile, returned to full training this week having missed the entirety of the season so far with the thigh injury he sustained in early August.

Ready ⚽️

A post shared by Adam Lallana (@officiallallana) on Nov 15, 2017 at 9:50am PST

Saturday’s meeting with Southampton at Anfield represents the first of 13 fixtures on Liverpool’s calendar in a timeframe of just 44 days.

That prospect, coupled with the quality of the players in question, means Klavan is delighted that Coutinho and Lallana will soon be available again to Jürgen Klopp.

“It’s really important. They are really good, world-class players [so] to have them back, it’s really nice,” the centre-back told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We need the whole squad to go to this period where we play so many games, and sometimes you maybe need to rotate a little bit to bring fresh legs in.”

Klavan first experienced English football’s hectic winter schedule last year and feels that making the most of the reduced time the team have together at Melwood is crucial if they are to prosper between now and early January.

“There’s not much to prepare, I think it’s more about playing and recovery in this period of time and it’s for everybody to be in the best shape and those few training sessions we have before each game, we have to be there and listen to what the manager is saying,” the Estonia international explained.

“If you need to change something tactically, you have to always be there in training because sometimes you only have one decent session before you have to play again.”

The Reds head into this weekend’s clash with Southampton having scored 10 and conceded just once in their last three matches.

An improved level of defensive solidity has been evident since last month’s 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, and Klavan thinks a collective effort is the main reason for that.

“I think we’ve been defending with the whole team. I think everybody is giving their all, their best, to defend and after that when we get the ball we are ready to go forward. I think, at least in my opinion, everybody is doing their defensive work really good,” he said.

Back-to-back 3-0 victories over Huddersfield Town and Maribor saw Liverpool score all six of their goals after half-time, and Klavan thinks patience could again be required against a Saints side he describes as ‘really good’.

“For sure, always you have to be patient even if in the first half you maybe have more ball possession but you’re not scoring, you still need to do the defensive work to keep the zero [clean sheet] behind,” he noted.

“We know we’re going to have at least a couple of chances in every game, so be patient and give it your best.”
