Jose Enrique included in Liverpool’s 2015/16 Premier League squad

ThisIsAnfield.com - Чт, 03/09/2015 - 23:17

After failing to secure a move away from Liverpool this summer, Jose Enrique has been named in Brendan Rodgers‘ squad for the 2015/16 Premier League season.

Jose Enrique was expected to leave Liverpool this summer but, having chosen to stay and fight for his place in the final year of his contract, the left-back has now been included in the Reds’ Premier League squad for 2015/16.

Forced to train alone amid speculation that he could join West Bromwich Albion, a move for Enrique failed to materialise despite rumours of a deadline-day move.

As the summer transfer window closed, Enrique took to Twitter to declare: “I’m happy to stay and fight for my place.”

Enrique could well get that opportunity, after being included in Rodgers’ 21-man league squad.

Short of the limit of 25, Rodgers’ selection is bolstered by a number of players under the age of 21.

Emre Can, Joe Gomez, Jordon Ibe, Divock Origi and Jordan Rossiter fit into that bracket despite being regular first-team players.

Alongside Enrique in the main squad selection is a full quota of eight homegrown players: Joe Allen, Nathaniel Clyne, Jon Flanagan, Jordan Henderson, Danny Ings, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Daniel Sturridge.

Twenty-two-year-old academy regular Joao Carlos Teixeira is also included, although both he and Enrique miss out on Rodgers’ Europa League squad.

Ibe and Rossiter are also both not included in this European selection, but remain available due to their homegrown and under-21 status.

Internationals: Where each LFC player is playing this weekend

ThisIsAnfield.com - Чт, 03/09/2015 - 18:12

With a long weekend of international football ahead of us, we take a look at which Liverpool player is performing where over the next few days.

We’d be lying if we said the international break was little more than a nuisance, with the new Premier League season frustratingly called to a halt for a fortnight.

There is also the risk of a Liverpool player picking up an injury while in action for their respective country; something we have experienced time and time again with Daniel Sturridge, among others.

Numerous Reds players will be action over the weekend, whether it be in Europe, South America or elsewhere across the globe.

Here is a round-up of who is playing where:

Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner – England

Liverpool’s new signings are both likely to start for the Three Lions, as they face minnows San Marino away on Saturday, before hosting Switzerland at Wembley next Tuesday in their Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Simon Mignolet, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi – Belgium

The Reds’ Belgian trio have all been called up by coach Marc Wilmots, although it is unlikely any will start against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday.

Simon Mignolet is very much back-up to Thibaut Courtois, Christian Benteke has a thigh injury and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku will likely start ahead of Divock Origi.

Belgium also play Cyprus on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho– Brazil

Roberto Firmino is joined by Philippe Coutinho despite Dunga’s original omission of the Liverpool No. 10 for this squad.

Firmino is likely to feature heavily in the Selecao‘s friendlies against Costa Rica and USA, which take place in New York and Boston, respectively.

Martin Skrtel – Slovakia

Martin Skrtel is Slovakia’s captain, and the 30-year-old will lead his side out for a daunting clash away to Spain on Saturday evening.

The Eastern European’s also host Ukraine on Tuesday.

Dejan Lovren – Croatia

The Reds’ much-maligned defender will probably be relived to get away from Melwood for a week or so, after another disappointing performance against West Ham last Saturday.

He may well start for Croatia when they travel to Azerbaijan on Thursday, before visiting Norway three days later.

Emre Can – Germany

Emre Can has received his first call-up to Germany’s senior squad, and will be hoping to make his debut in one of his country’s qualifiers against Poland and Scotland.

The 21-year-old is someone who coach Joachim Low rates highly, and it will be interesting to see how he fares, should he play for the world champions.

Adam Bogdan – Hungary

Liverpool second-choice goalkeeper has joined up with his Hungary teammates ahead of qualifiers at home to Romania on Friday and away to Northern Ireland on Monday.

Jordan Williams – Wales

The youngster received a surprise call-up to the Wales squad for their crucial qualifiers against Cyprus and Israel on Thursday and Sunday, but it seems unlikely that he will feature, given his lack of experience.

Lazar Markovic – Serbia

The 21-year-old, who has surprisingly been loaned out to Turkish side Fenerbahce by Liverpool, could start for Serbia in Friday’s home qualifier against Armenia, and Monday’s friendly away to France.

Joe Gomez and Jordon Ibe – England U21s

Two of Liverpool’s brightest young players, and England’s for that matter, will should play a part in Thursday’s friendly against USA’s U23 side, and in Monday’s clash away to Norway’s U21s.

Tiago Ilori – Portugal U21s

Ilori’s loan move to Aston Villa on Deadline Day came as a surprise to many, but the young centre-back’s attention now turns to Portugal U21s and their European Championship qualifier in Albania on Tuesday.

Jordan Rossiter – England U19s

Jordan Rossiter should play a prominent role for England’s U19s when they face Germany and Croatia’s U19 sides. Sheyi Ojo, on loan at Wolves, may also feature.

Not involved: Mamadou Sakho, Alberto Moreno, Jose Enrique, Jon Flanagan, Kolo Toure, Lucas Leiva, Danny Ings

Injured: Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Joe Allen

Allan Rodrigues de Souza: The lowdown on Liverpool’s new Brazilian youngster

ThisIsAnfield.com - Чт, 03/09/2015 - 18:03

Allan Rodrigues de Souza’s move to Liverpool was completed at the end of the summer transfer window, and here Jack Lusby profiles the youngster.

Football - Liverpool FC Preseason Tour 2015 - HJK Helsinki v Liverpool FC

Allan Rodrigues de Souza made his move from Brasileirao side Internacional to Liverpool permanent at the end of the summer transfer window, with the club confirming his arrival.

The 18-year-old joins the Reds after a summer spent training with Brendan Rodgers‘ side at Melwood.

As part of Allan’s transfer, the midfielder has joined Finnish outfit Seinajoen Jalkapallokerho on loan until January.

But just who is Allan?

Here’s the lowdown on the latest addition to Liverpool’s Brazilian contingent.

Allan Rodrigues de Souza

Even in typically reliable Brazilian circles, Allan is something of an unknown entity.

BBC Sport’s Tim Vickery, an expert in Brazilian football, professed his ignorance as to the midfielder’s ability when questioned prior to his official signing at Liverpool.

The Reds’ own Lucas Leiva also claims to have little knowledge of Allan’s ability.

“I know Allan,” he is said to have told Brazilian radio station Radio Guaiba. “I know he has little professional experience.

“But if Liverpool are signing him, he has quality.”

The Reds have been improving their youth recruitment network over the summer, with Bobby Adekanye and Brooks Lennon being drafted in after the scouting net was cast wide across Europe and North America, and Allan’s arrival is further proof of this.

The 18-year-old came to Liverpool’s attention as Neil Critchley took his under-18s side to Indonesia to take part in the Frenz International Cup in January.

Critchley described the youth cup as “a very prestigious tournament with some top teams,” one of which being Allan’s Inter.

Born in Porto Alegre, Allan rose slowly through the ranks at Inter, but Goal Brazil’s deputy editor Rodrigo Calvozzo claims he “was always treated by Internacional as one of the most important players in the team.”

Still “virtually unknown,” according to Goal’s William Schneider, Allan spent the summer integrating with his new team-mates—aided by the presence of Lucas, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.

Allan was pictured alongside his Brazilian compatriots and fellow first-team players such as Emre Can and Alberto Moreno at a barbecue hosted by Lucas this summer.

The ambassadorial quality of Lucas will help Allan transition into life at Liverpool, but what can he offer Rodgers’ side on the pitch?

Style of Play, Strengths and Weaknesses

Allan Rodrigues de Souza

Allan follows the likes of Leandro Damiao, Fred, Oscar, Alexandre Pato, Nilmar and Luiz Adriano through the Inter ranks, but his playing style is far removed from his more attacking compatriots.

A central midfielder by trade, Allan is primarily left-footed and employs a strong passing range, honed with time spent as a deep-lying playmaker in Brazil.

But given more license to roam by Inter youth coach Ricardo Cobalchini towards the end of his Porto Alegre spell, Allan has proven himself a useful box-to-box midfielder with promising attacking instincts.

His performances for Cobalchini’s side in the Frenz International Cup showed this quality.

Wearing the No. 8 shirt, Allan spearheaded Inter’s tournament-winning run, including a victories over Valencia and Porto and tough test against Argentine rivals Estudiantes in the final, with the midfielder captaining his side to a 3-2 win.

“Internacional and Estudiantes play good football. Our styles are almost the same, aggressive and very physical,” Cobalchini said before the game.

“That is our brand of football.”

As Coutinho and Firmino prove, the Brazilian game has developed in recent years, with a more robust, physical approach allied with that traditional Samba flair.

Throughout the tournament, Allan showcased the aggression and quality that Cobalchini expected.

Calvozzo describes him as “a very calm player [whose] talent belies his teenage years.

“He is very technical, and the left-footed star likes to play long passes that generally seek the fast attackers ahead.”

His passing range was on show as Inter defeated Porto 2-0 in the semi-final, but Allan also showed his tenacity and tackling ability in midfield, as well as his set-piece prowess and the ability to link up play on the edge of the penalty area.

Perhaps his finest moment of that clash came as he lofted a long-range strike over the Porto goalkeeper, after nipping the ball from the opposition in midfield.

It was a captain’s performance that announced Allan as a promising talent, but as testimony from Calvozzo and Paulo Freitas—Football Manager’s head researcher for Brazilian football—suggests, there is a long way to go yet for the midfielder.

Calvozzo highlighted a lack of pace in Allan’s game, with the youngster instead having to rely on his reading on the game to suit the box-to-box role that Freitas envisions.

Interestingly, Freitas also describes Allan as “not regarded among the most promising players” in Brazil, also suggesting that “[his] finishing isn’t anything special.”

Liverpool clearly saw enough in Allan to sanction his £500,000 transfer this summer however, and now Rodgers and his academy staff must plot his route into the first team.

Where Does Allan Fit in at Liverpool?

Rodgers’ midfield is perhaps the only area that can be deemed overstocked.

With Lucas, Coutinho, Firmino, Can, Joe Allen Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Joao Carlos Teixeira and Jordan Rossiter all able to perform in various roles in the middle of the park, Allan joins a group of high-potential academy stars in competition for a role in the future.

Cameron Brannagan, Pedro Chirivella, Adam Phillips and Yan Dhanda can all be considered rivals for a position in Rodgers’ midfield over the coming seasons, too.

But with experienced gained in a harsh footballing environment in Finland at Seinajoen Jalkapallokerho, Allan will be hoping to gain an edge on his fellow youth stars.

Happily, the Brazilian’s skill set suggests he could be moulded into a variety of roles at Liverpool.

His passing range and defensive instinct could project a deep-lying role at the base of a midfield diamond, for example, while his box-to-box performances for Inter hint at the possibility of a more advanced position.

Though his lack of pace may hold him back, his close control and link-up play could even lend themselves to a playmaking role similar to that of Coutinho and Teixeira.

This versatility will give Allan an advantage in moving into Rodgers’ first team in the future. But, with a short spell in Finland to come first, there are many challenges ahead for Allan upon his move to Merseyside.

Far from the finished article, Allan’s ability is abundant but raw, and will need to be nurtured if he is to find a long-term role at Liverpool.
