Mane in contact with 'strong' Salah during World Cup

Sat, 23/06/2018 - 18:28

Sadio Mane has revealed he sent a good luck message to Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah ahead of the pair representing their respective countries at this summer's World Cup.

And the Senegal winger also paid tribute to the 'fight' shown by Salah to overcome the shoulder injury that threatened to keep him out of the tournament.

Having been without their talismanic forward for the 1-0 loss to Uruguay that kicked off their World Cup, Egypt's group-stage exit was sealed by defeat to Russia in their second outing, despite Salah scoring upon his return.

Mane, who helped Senegal win their only fixture thus far, expressed sympathy for his club colleague but also took time to hail his mental fortitude.

Speaking at a press conference to preview his country's second match, the Reds No.19 told reporters: "I sent him a message about a week ago. I was wishing him the best. 

"He's a player who really wanted to play during this World Cup but, unfortunately, he arrived suffering from an injury.

"He's a very strong guy, mentally, he did fight hard, he came back to help his country.

"Unfortunately, [Egypt] struggled, but it's football, you have to live with it.

"I wish him all the best for the future. I think that, at the moment, of course it is normal for him to [feel bad] but that's football and he's going to have to prepare for the next [game]."

Liverpool prepare massive Marco Asensio bid

Sat, 23/06/2018 - 14:53

Liverpool are ready to break the bank and pay a staggering British record £158million for Real Madrid play-maker Marco Asensio – with Neymar at the centre of the shock saga.

That's according to reports in Spain which say Liverpool have contacted Madrid officials to open official dialogue after making a “firm offer” for the 22-year-old Spanish international.

That's not been dismissed out of hand by the Spanish giants – with sources saying they have still not given up hope of snatching Brazilian star Neymar from Paris St Germain.

A huge offer for Asensio would give Madrid the financial clout to go big for Neymar who they've identified as the global star to success Cristiano Ronaldo.

Asensio – currently at the World Cup in Russia – has been tipped to become THE player of his generation and a poster-boy star for Spanish football with the world at his feet.

But despite playing in 53 of Madrid's 62 matches last season many of Asensio's outings were off the bench.

One of those was against Liverpool in the Champions League Final 3-1 win over Jürgen Klopp's men in Kiev.

Asensio came on as an 89 minute replacement for Karim Benzema – the last of Zinedine Zidane's substitutions before the French coach left the club days later.

The youngster was known to be becoming frustrated at his lack of starts last season – a vibe it appears have Liverpool picked up on.

But they face huge hurdles to overcome if they're to land Asensio as replacement for Philippe Coutinho who left Anfield for Barcelona in January in £146 million deal.

One of those obstacles is the arrival of new boss Julen Lopetegui who replaces Zidane.

But perhaps the biggest is the mind-blowing €700million release clause Asensio has in his contract which runs out in 2023.

Sources in Spain, however, say that was set merely to protect Madrid in the transfer market if Asensio became a target.

Liverpool stars painted as historical leaders

Sat, 23/06/2018 - 14:00

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp and record-breaking Reds forward Mohamed Salah feature in a new art exhibition 'Like the Gods' that depicts footballers as historical leaders.

The instillation is the work of Italian artist Fabrizio Birimbelli (@pupazzaro) and was launched at the Museum of the Russian Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg to coincide with their hosting of the World Cup finals.

More than 40 portraits of players and coaches in historical military uniform make up the project, which opened on June 20 and runs through to the end of the tournament.

Birimbelli's catalogue of work also includes similar depictions of Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, Kop hero Steven Gerrard and former Reds such as Dirk Kuyt, Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres.

'Firmino is vital to Liverpool's balance'

Sat, 23/06/2018 - 11:00

Roberto Firmino's intelligent movement makes him the perfect foil for fellow Liverpool forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, according to former Reds striker John Aldridge.

The Brazilian enjoyed the most productive season of his Anfield career thus far last time out, scoring 27 of the 91 goals mustered by Jürgen Klopp's first-choice front three.

But Aldridge was most impressed by the regularity with which Liverpool's No.9 created space for his pacier colleagues, a factor he feels brings balance to the forward line as a whole. 

"When you've got three players [up top], you've got to strike a balance - we're very well balanced," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"You've got to get different things from different players and he just balances it. The way he comes off, the other lads can go into a central role, Mane or Salah.

"I think he's the best mover of the three of them; he drags people out of position with his movement, he's very clever, he opens spaces up for the other two to take advantage of.

"Don't forget he scored 25 goals or so last year, which in itself is tremendous, plus his assists are right up there as well.

"The way we play, he's absolutely vital, he's always involved with the other two."

ALL THE GOALS: Firmino, Mane and Salah's sensational season

Although he expects Firmino, Mane and Salah to repeat last season's exploits next time around, Aldridge hopes to see their goal haul supplemented by the midfield and defence.

"If we need more goals it's from midfield," he continued.

"The three [forwards] can't do anymore than they did from a creative point of view, from a scoring point of view but we didn't get enough goals from midfield last year.

"I think we've got to take the weight off the front three players, we depend on them an awful lot.

"We need a few more goals from [midfield] and the centre-halves."

Firmino helps Brazil to late win over Costa Rica

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 17:21

Roberto Firmino made an impact as a second-half substitute to help Brazil to a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica in Saint Petersburg on Friday.

The Liverpool forward came on after 68 minutes of play in the World Cup finals group-stage encounter, with the scoreline locked at 0-0.

Brazil clinched three crucial points, however, with two stoppage-time strikes – and Firmino was crucial in the opener, nodding a ball down for Gabriel Jesus to touch onto ex-Red Philippe Coutinho to score.

Neymar made sure of the win when he struck in the 97th minute.

'Steven Gerrard has left LFC Academy legacy'

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 12:56

Steven Gerrard’s spell as Liverpool’s U18s coach has left behind a legacy, believes Academy director Alex Inglethorpe.

The Anfield legend was in charge of the young Reds side for the 2017-18 season before taking up a role as manager of Rangers this summer.

Inglethorpe feels Gerrard has ‘left his mark’ on everyone at the Academy and is confident he’ll go on to prove a success in first-team management.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Having the opportunity to work with Steven left it's mark, not just on the players but on the staff as well.

"You see the qualities that he brings. I think we've been really lucky to have had Steven here.

"At best, I knew we would get two or possibly three years. We always knew that he would be wanted and having worked with him I can understand why. He's a natural leader.

"He's incredibly dedicated towards achieving what he wants. He's not a man who looks to cut any corners.

"He's not someone who wants to be fast-tracked. He was prepared to come into the Academy and commit in the same way as every other coach.

"I have no doubt that he's on the pathway to becoming a top manager. All he needs is time and a bit of patience from everybody.

"He's in the infancy of his journey but I'm convinced that he will succeed and achieve everything as a manager that he did as a player."

Mario Gotze wants to join Liverpool

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 12:53

Mario Gotze wants to quit Borussia Dortmund to join Liverpool, a Bundesliga expert has revealed.

Lee Price, who has written two books on German football including a biography on Jurgen Klopp, understands Gotze wants to test himself in England.

And Price has revealed Gotze has TWICE considered signing for Liverpool before - only to stay in Germany.

The 26-year-old, who was left out the Germany World Cup squad, is down the pecking order at Dortmund and is keen on linking back up with Jurgen Klopp.

The pair enjoy a good relationship with Klopp the man who gave Gotze his big break in 2009.

Liverpool had targeted Nabil Fakir from Lyon but that move broke down after problems in the attacking midfielder’s medical.

"Liverpool have emerged as the favourites to sign Mario Gotze," Price told Express Sport.

"Their deal for Nabil Fekir collapsed, and the club are scraping around for alternatives - with Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri both being monitored but not convincing Jurgen Klopp.

"One man he has known and liked for a long time - and has considered signing for Liverpool on two occasions - is Mario Gotze.

"The German star is out of favour at Borussia Dortmund, and wants to test himself in England, plus would command a relatively modest fee in today’s hyperactive transfer market.

"Most Premier League clubs would take the star, but Liverpool would be his top choice, largely because of the Klopp factor - who he worked with at Dortmund.

"Klopp thinks he can revitalise the player’s career, unearth a bargain, and add strength in depth to his squad.”

Gotze scored Germany’s World Cup winning goal four years ago - then left Dortmund for Bayern Munich.

But his career hampered by fitness problems and in 2016 he completed an £18million return to Dortmund.

Local youngsters team up with elderly residents for special workshop

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 12:15

A group of local schoolchildren invited their elderly neighbours to a special interactive workshop this week, in a bid to tackle social isolation.

New Park Primary School, in Anfield, teamed up with Red Neighbours to deliver the intergenerational class, where young pupils learnt to make rag rugs and cushions and then passed on their new-found skills to their senior friends.

The project provides important social interaction for older members of the community, for whom loneliness can be a huge issue. Craft activities of this nature can also improve motor functions and slow cognitive decline in the elderly.

Support for the elderly community forms one of the key areas of focus of the Red Neighbours programme, alongside food poverty and education, encouraging a physically active community, and creating memorable experiences for young people.

Alexander-Arnold's World Cup support for Sadio Mane

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 12:00

Trent Alexander-Arnold is hoping Sadio Mane enjoys an excellent World Cup finals with Senegal – but he hasn’t spoken to his Liverpool teammate about a potential clash with England in the tournament’s round of 16.

The Reds defender was on the bench as the Three Lions got their campaign up and running with a 2-1 victory over Tunisia on Monday night.

The following evening, Mane captained Senegal to a 2-1 success against Poland in Group H with Alexander-Arnold watching closely on television at England’s training base.

"I try to watch every one of my club-mates' games out here, I watched their first game and I want to see him do well,” said Liverpool’s No.66.

"It's only right we all support each other in that sense. Whenever I watch Senegal I want to see them win and the same with my other teammates.

"We're just focused on ourselves but if the time comes when we hopefully get out of the group and we play them, that's when we'll focus on it."

England and Senegal could go head-to-head in the last 16 of the World Cup depending on the final standings in their respective groups.

But it’s not something Alexander-Arnold and Mane have discussed so far, as the former explained: "We never spoke about it, there were three games we needed to get past and there's still two now.

"Until we know we might be playing each other, that's when we'll speak."

Merseyside duo chase England star

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 11:24

Everton and Liverpool have emerged as favourites to land Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer.

Loftus-Cheek admits his future at Chelsea is uncertain and that he needs to play regular games.

The England ace spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace after being told he wasn’t part of Antonio Conte’s plans for the campaign.

And with Chelsea’s managerial situation still unresolved Loftus-Cheek’s future is uncertain.

Loftus-Cheek made his Chelsea debut in 2014 but has yet to be given an extended run in the side.

But he made 25 appearances on loan at Crystal Palace last season and Roy Hodgson is keen to get him back.

Reds identify PL centre-back trio as targets

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 11:02

Liverpool are currently keeping tabs on three Premier League defenders in Jamaal Lascelles, Harry Maguire and James Tarkowski.

That’s according to the Guardian.

The Reds splashed out £75million - a world-record fee for a centre-back - on Virgil van Dijk back in January and saw obvious rewards with the Dutchman in the back-line.

And now Liverpool want to recruit another defender to add more strength in depth at the back, with English trio Lascelles, Maguire and Tarkowski among their targets.

Newcastle skipper Lascelles has been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham following a terrific campaign for Rafael Benitez’s side, leading them to a solid 10th-placed finish.

The 24-year-old was even touted for a late England call-up for the World Cup, although the U21 international missed out on the squad. He made 33 Premier League appearances, scoring three goals, for the Magpies last term.

One defender who did make the Three Lions squad for Russia was Leicester City’s Maguire, who enjoyed an excellent season for the Foxes after joining from Hull City.

The towering ball-playing 25-year-old, who cost £17m just 12 months ago, started England’s opening game as they won 2-1 against Tunisia in Volgograd and even set up Harry Kane’s winning goal from a corner.

The Guardian say that Liverpool would face competition from Premier League champions Manchester City for Maguire, who would likely demand a huge transfer fee after playing all 38 league games for Leicester last term.

Another alternative who also enjoyed a strong 2017-18 season was Burnley’s Tarkowski, who made the standby list for England’s World Cup selection but pulled out through injury.

Tarkowski, also 25, excelled for Sean Dyche’s Burnley as they reached the second round of Europa League qualifying courtesy of finishing seventh in the English top-flight.

Only injury and suspension prevented Tarkowski from playing in all of Burnley’s league games last year although he still featured in 31 of 38 games and was rewarded with his international debut back in March.

Reports from the Independent last month also linking Lascelles and Tarkowski, suggested that Liverpool simply want to add extra quality at the back.

The Guardian also say that Liverpool are keen on Jack Butland of Stoke City when they resume their search for a new goalkeeper, while Paris Saint-Germain’s Alphonso Areola is also touted as a possibility.

Henderson backs ‘brilliant’ Oxlade-Chamberlain to come back even better

Fri, 22/06/2018 - 11:00

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s attitude and application will enable him to return from injury stronger.

Liverpool’s No.21 saw his impressive first season at Anfield cruelly cut short when he sustained knee ligament damage during the Reds’ Champions League semi-final tie with AS Roma in April.

But captain Jordan Henderson is certain that Oxlade-Chamberlain has the mental and physical capabilities to pick up where he left off once he is fit again.

“That was disappointing for us as a team because Ox has been brilliant all season,” Henderson says of his teammate's setback on LFC’s official 2017-18 end-of-season DVD.

“He’s came in and I think he’s put in some brilliant performances and you can see how the fans have took to him straight away. [He’s] brilliant to have around in the dressing room, he’s a big character and he’ll be missed over the time that he’s out, definitely. 

“But I know that he’ll be back as soon as he can and as strong as he can, because that’s the type of person he is. He’s always positive, even now when he’s injured he comes in with a smile on his face and he’s always joking around and laughing. 

“It’s amazing to see, really, because of where he is at the minute and he’s got a pretty long journey ahead of him to recover, but I’m sure he’ll attack that. 

“He’s got brilliant people around him and helping him, and the lads will help him as much as they can throughout that journey. I’ve got no doubt he’ll be back as soon as he can and he’ll be even better when he’s back.”

LFC’s official end-of-season DVD includes exclusive interviews with Henderson, Jürgen Klopp and many more.
