Jurgen Klopp has “no doubt Mo Salah’s best years are still to come”

1 hour 27 sec ago

Jurgen Klopp has lauded the news of Mohamed Salah‘s new three-year contract, tipping the forward to enjoy his “best years” as he enters his 30s with Liverpool.

One of the main points of contention among fans when it came to talks over a new deal for Salah was that, having turned 30 in June, he would be breaking the club’s wage salary in the latter years of his career.

But the Egyptian firmly believes that he can thrive at the top level well into his 30s, similar to the likes of Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo.

And speaking on the confirmation of Salah’s new contract – which ties him down beyond his 33rd birthday in 2025 – Klopp agreed with his leading goalscorer.

“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come,” he told the club’s official website.

“And that’s saying something, because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend.

“Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it and he gets his rewards.

“His ability and his skill level gets higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also.

“He is adored by his team-mates. As coaches we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool.

“It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer and it means we can achieve more together.”

Salah’s new contract is the latest in a string of impressive deals in the early weeks of Julian Ward’s time at sporting director, having taken over from the long-serving Michael Edwards.

While Sadio Mane pushed through his exit to Bayern Munich, Ward has also secured the signings of Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay already this summer.

Though negotiations were protracted, Klopp paid tribute to the new sporting director for his role in tying down the club’s ninth-highest goalscorer of all time.

“It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now,” the manager added.

“Of course it has taken a little time but that’s absolutely OK and the best things are always worth waiting for anyway.

“Mo is one of the best players in the world; it’s only normal there are things to sort when you are at his level.

“So big credit to Julian Ward and Mike Gordon for guiding us to this destination.”

Liverpool fans relish “best summer signing” after “Oscar-worthy” Mo Salah contract twist

1 hour 3 min ago

It’s fair to say fans were given the best Friday feeling as Mohamed Salah‘s contract extension was announced, with the No. 11 delivering the “best news of the summer.”

Salah is now the club’s highest-paid player in history after agreeing to a new three-year deal worth in excess of £350,000 a week.

It comes following months of trepidation regarding his future and the prospect of heading into the new season with question marks over what comes next.

But those fears have now been allayed with his deal that runs until 2025, all signed, sealed and delivered in the most brilliant of ways, which included Salah, his agent and the club stirring the pot.

It created plenty of excitement for Reds with the news they had longed to hear finally coming to be, and there were plenty of brilliant reactions across social media.

There could be no hiding the joy…

Great news about Salah! 3 years sounds about right, hopefully his new salary won't lead to a cascade of requests by others, and other players happy at what he's being given. But being committed to LFC = great. Also avoids circus of his final year, distractions, rumours, etc.

Salah, Van Dijk, Klopp, Alisson and Fabinho all re-signed for the next 3 year at least. An elite spine that isn’t slowing down while refreshing players around them, ie, Mane, to keep things fresh and rejuvenated. Opportunities for youngsters to come in.

Good shape.

At some point Liverpool were going to have to update the wage structure to reflect the level they’re at now. If you have several of the best players in the world, you need to reward them as such, or accept the fact they won’t hang about. Salah 100% justifies this shift.

Mo Salah “so excited” to link up with Darwin Nunez after new Liverpool contract

1 hour 13 min ago

Mohamed Salah has reflected on signing a new three-year contract with Liverpool, with the Egyptian “so excited” to link up with £85 million striker Darwin Nunez.

For a long time, it seemed as though Salah would end his time with the Reds a year from now, with no progress reported in talks between the club and his agent.

But Liverpool pulled a surprise on Friday afternoon as they announced a new long-term contract for their No. 11, who has now committed until 2025 on terms upwards of £350,000 a week.

It is a significant deal for the club that comes at a time of great change at Anfield, with Sadio Mane‘s departure paving the way for the record signing of Nunez from Benfica.

Salah’s presence will be a constant during this evolution, and speaking to LFCTV on the announcement of his contract extension the 30-year-old expressed his desire to play alongside his new team-mate.

“I’m so excited, I want to play with him,” Salah said of Nunez.

“He had a good season last season and he played good against us, home and away.

“Also, Sadio is leaving. We’re going to miss him, we had good seasons with the club, so I wish him all the best.

“I wish Darwin all the best, to score many goals for us.”

With 156 goals in just 254 games, Salah stands as the ninth-highest goalscorer in Liverpool history, having leapfrogged Jack Parkinson, Sam Raybould and Harry Chambers in the campaign just gone.

He can overtake Michael Owen with another three goals, but it is clear that the Egyptian is aiming higher, with these personal accolades motivating him to stay and propel the Reds to further success.

“It’s great to see yourself at No. 9 in the highest goalscorers for the club, especially when you do it in a short time,” he continued.

“It’s something great.

“I said it many times before, the most important thing is to win trophies, but I think when you score goals and help the team to win games, that’s also what brings trophies.

“It’s something I’m proud of.”

Salah added: “Especially when you do it in a short time, as a winger, with many assists, it’s something great.”

14 former Liverpool players catching the eye in the Football League

Thu, 06/30/2022 - 18:00

The pathway to the Liverpool first team comes in a variety of forms, from the academy to the transfer window – but careers may also blossom in the leagues below.

Jurgen Klopp has created an environment that sees the doors to the first team open wide for those ready to make their mark.

But as we’ve all seen before, it does not always go to plan and Liverpool is not always to be the final destination, even if a player wishes it so.

That does not mean their career comes to a halt, but rather a redirection, and for many young talents that means looking to the wider English football pyramid to forge their careers.

Many have thrived and are now back in the English top flight, including Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth) and Harry Wilson (Fulham), while a move to America has benefited Tom Brewitt (Hartford) and Brad Smith (DC United).

But how are former Reds now plying their trade in the Football League coming along? Here is a look at who is thriving.

Leading the way

There are plenty of ex-Reds currently forging their path in the Championship and below, and for a number of them it has proved successful.

Cameron Brannagan – Oxford United

The 26-year-old is a regular for Oxford and has attracted plenty of interest outside of League One after a campaign that saw him named as the club’s Supporters’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.

The midfielder, who made nine appearances for Liverpool, now has 188 to his name for Oxford – and last season made history by scoring four penalties in a single game!

A success story.

Jack Robinson – Sheffield United

Once Liverpool’s youngest-ever player, Robinson is now a regular in defence for Sheffield United after making the move from Nottingham Forest in 2020.

At 28, he has established himself as a reliable Championship player but will be eager to help the Blades make their return to the Premier League.

A veteran by the standards of those above when he left Liverpool in 2016, Allen showed his commitment to Stoke despite their relegation and is only now seeking a move after 220 games.

A total of 140 of those came in the Championship, where he has been a mainstay in Stoke’s midfield alongside his international exploits with Wales.

Jordan Williams – Bolton

Back to League One and you will find Jordan ‘MJ’ Williams, a former youth player who made a single senior appearance for the Reds and has since found his groove elsewhere.

The defensive midfielder is a regular for Bolton and has promotion experience as a result from League Two to League One, taking his total tally of Football League appearances to 156.

Fellow Bolton player and Liverpool academy graduate, Johnston has found his home with the Wanderers and played the most minutes (3,938) of any player at the club in 2021/22.

The 23-year-old featured primarily in his favoured centre-back role but still chipped in with two goals and two assists.

Another consistent season could put other clubs on notice.

Lloyd Jones – Cambridge United

Another player who has had his fair share of moves, Jones’ first season with Cambridge in League One was a successful one at centre-back, playing 28 games for his highest season return.

Jones has played the majority of his career in League One and League Two since leaving Liverpool.

The former Liverpool youth has bounced around from one club to the next but, despite that, he has taken it in his stride and last season impressed alongside Brannagan at Oxford.

The midfielder, still only 23, made 38 appearances in 2021/22, laying on six assists, for his second-highest career return to date.

Lawrence Vigouroux – Leyton Orient

The goalkeeper shifted between leagues following his Liverpool exit in 2016, even heading to Chile, but has now found his place at League Two’s Leyton Orient, becoming an ever-present over the last two seasons.

Fellow ‘keeper George was released by the Reds at the end of 2019/20 and landed at League Two club Colchester United, earning plaudits for his role.

Named Colchester’s Player of the Year for 2021/22, the 24-year-old also earned a contract extension having been handed the chance to show his credentials.

Conor Masterson – QPR

The 23-year-old centre-back was on loan at Cambridge and then Gillingham last season, and finally found the consistent game time he’d have been after with a total of 39 appearances across the two League One clubs.

His parent club, QPR, reside in the Championship, and the hope will be that he can now make that step up in the coming season.

A mixed bag

Ex-Liverpool academy coach Neil Critchley brought Stewart to Blackpool in 2021, but injuries proved troublesome during a season that saw him earn his first two caps for Jamaica.

It’s not been a huge success, but Stewart’s Football League journey did reap its rewards during his time with Hull – and he faces a decisive summer after Critchley’s move to Aston Villa.

Ryan McLaughlin – Morecambe

There’s been plenty of bouncing around for McLaughlin in recent years, featuring for Oldham, Rochdale, Blackpool, Barnsley and most recently Morecambe.

Primarily deployed at right-back, the 27-year-old has been at home in League One but, having been made available for another summer move, there could yet be more highs and lows to come.

Ovie Ejaria, Reading (Mike Egerton/PA Archive/PA Images) Ovie Ejaria – Reading

The playmaker started his Reading career, on loan, with plenty of excitement surrounding his name and while a consistent presence in his side, he hit a dry spell with injury playing its part.

At 24, there is plenty more to come, but Ejaria is currently going through what can best be described as growing pains in the Championship.

Daniel Ayala – Blackburn

We’re talking veteran territory now with Ayala, who recently bounced back from an injury-interrupted 2020/21 to become an option at the back once more for Blackburn.

Ayala has been a mainstay in the Championship throughout his career, but a move away from the Football League could now be in the works after a turbulent two years with Rovers.

Liverpool duo up for award & left-back set for move abroad – Latest LFC News

Thu, 06/30/2022 - 17:27

Two Liverpool stars have been nominated for an award in their homeland and Owen Beck looks set to move overseas. Thursday’s roundup is here!

Salah and Keita up for African Men’s Player of the Year

The Confederation of African Football has confirmed the 30-man shortlist for the 2022 African Men’s Player of the Year award, with Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita both included.

Salah, who won the award in 2017 and 2018, will be one of the favourites to secure it again, having notched 31 goals in 51 matches for Liverpool last season.

He also won the Premier League‘s Golden Boot and Playmaker of the Year awards and was named Professional Footballers’ Association Men’s Players’ Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.

Guinea midfielder Keita enjoyed one of his best seasons for the Reds and remains one of the best midfielders from his continent.

However, ex-Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, who left for Bayern Munich earlier this month, will be the bookies’ favourite, having scored the winning penalties as Senegal beat Salah’s Egypt to the AFCON trophy and World Cup qualification earlier this year.

Mane won the award in 2019 and who could argue against him winning it again?

The winner will be announced alongside the other CAF Awards on July 21.

3 things today: Beck in line for move abroad & Lijnders’ pre-season hint

Anfield Road End expansion gets ‘wow’ moment – and new pitch for 2022/23

Thu, 06/30/2022 - 17:05

Back in March, Anfield Road End expansion contractors the Buckingham Group told This Is Anfield to expect a ‘wow’ moment in the summer, which is now evident.

At the six-month mark in construction, project director Colin Roddy explained how progress on redeveloping the Anfield Road End will hit a milestone at the end of June.

“You’ll really get a feeling for the height of the structure at about the end of June, start of July,” he said.

“We hope to see the first grandstand steel go up and we can appreciate what we’re building here.”

With June now turning to July, exclusive footage provided for This Is Anfield shows that ‘wow’ moment in effect, as the framework for the new upper tier is put in place.

[embedded content]

Two mammoth cranes have now arrived on site, dwarfing the existing machinery, ready to lift the roof truss in place.

At that point, the full height of the new Anfield Road End will be able to be appreciated, but for now, there is a stark indication of how high it will be.

The new stand is being built outside of the current structure, to eventually be joined on, with there having been no disruption to the normal matchday process.

And with the upper tier under construction, new footage starts to outline how the Anfield Road End will look upon its completion.

The site now dominates the surrounding area, with redevelopment work progressing swiftly during an extended break between games.

Liverpool last played at Anfield on May 22 and will not be back until July 31, though there have been three major concerts held at the stadium over the summer, too – the Rolling Stones (June 9), Elton John (June 17) and Eagles (June 20).

That gives contractors an uninterrupted month to work, while the club have also used the opportunity post-season to lay a new pitch ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Anfield Road End redevelopment will add around 7,000 extra seats at a cost of £80 million, raising the stand’s capacity to 15,967 and the stadium’s to 61,015.

It is on schedule for completion next summer.

Harvey Elliott reunites with old coach for training – and shows off his finishing

Thu, 06/30/2022 - 14:08

Harvey Elliott has returned to England following his post-season holiday in the US, and reunited with his former QPR youth coach for a finishing session this week.

With Liverpool’s pre-season training due to begin on Monday, Elliott is now back on home soil and ramping up his preparations for the return to Kirkby.

On Thursday morning, that saw the teenager link up with striker coach Scott Chickelday at the 1878 Stadium in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, for a session focused on finishing.

It was not the first time Elliott and Chickelday have worked together, with the coach previously his manager at under-10s level with QPR.

Elliott initially came through the ranks at QPR before his switch to Fulham, and it was Chickelday who prompted him to move from his position at left-back into a more forward role.

Nowadays, Chickelday operates as an elite performance attacking coach under the banner SC9 Striker Coach, which saw him back working with his former protege for a series of drills.

In a post shared on the SC9 Striker Coach Instagram, the pair can be seen posing alongside each other along with a video of Elliott showing quick movement and an outstanding finish with his left foot into the far top-right corner.

“Top session this morning with young Liverpool attacker Harvey Elliott,” Chickelday wrote.

“Seems so long ago I was his manager at U10s at QPR, what a player this boy is becoming!”

Chickelday, who is also in place as Billericay Town Women manager, has been working with Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins this summer as well, along with a number of youngsters from Premier League clubs.

6 reasons why Liverpool may not need a new midfielder – yet!

Wed, 06/29/2022 - 18:00

Many Liverpool supporters want to see a new midfielder added to the ranks this summer – so why, if reports are to be believed, is Jurgen Klopp not so desperate?

“Announce midfielder.”

You’ve probably seen that plea on your timeline at some stage within the last month.

As it stands, Liverpool will go into the new season with their senior midfield options consisting of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

New signing Fabio Carvalho can also play in a number of roles in the centre of the park and further forward.

On paper, that looks to be plenty, with eight or nine players battling it out for three, or even two, positions.

Delve a bit deeper, though, and you can understand why some fans have concerns.

Henderson is now 32. Thiago, 31, can be prone to injury, as can Keita, while Jones and Elliott are still learning. Milner will be 37 next year and Oxlade-Chamberlain was out of favour towards the end of 2021/22.

The Reds were interested in acquiring Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco, but after the Frenchman opted for Real Madrid, plans to sign a new midfielder have reportedly been shelved until next year.

Here, we assess several reasons why Klopp and the club’s recruitment team may feel they already have enough cover in the centre of the park.

Is Carvalho already the forgotten man?

 PA Images / Alamy Stock Photo)

Portugal under-21s midfielder Carvalho is yet to have even been officially unveiled as a Liverpool player, but some are already overlooking the part he could play under Klopp this season.

At 19, Carvalho is a player for the future, but it would be naive to write off his chances of making an impact straightaway.

It remains to be seen where Klopp will feel the Fulham academy product is best utilised, with reports stating he may initially be used as part of the forward line or as a No. 10.

There are claims, though, that the club eventually see Carvalho establishing himself in midfield.

With 10 goals and eight assists in Fulham’s emphatic rise to promotion last season, this isn’t just a young player with a lot of potential, this is one who has the talent to feature now.

Don’t bet against him being this year’s surprise package of pre-season – and possibly the season as a whole.

More to come from Jones and Elliott

Jones is 21 years of age. Elliott is 19 years of age. That is often forgotten.

Many have labelled the pair as squad options for the upcoming campaign.

That may have been the case last season, but both will rightly have aspirations to eventually become first-team regulars. They certainly have the talent to do so.

Elliott in particular threatened to establish himself as a starter in the early stages of last season, before the nasty ankle injury he sustained at Leeds.

There is a reason that both were ahead of Oxlade-Chamberlain in the pecking order for the majority of last season.

Klopp is investing in them for the future. Jones and Elliott are at stages where game time is essential for their development. Oxlade-Chamberlain less so, with just one year remaining on his contract.

At youth level, Jones looked every bit the ultimate attacking midfield player, bursting past players for fun and scoring some ridiculously good goals.

We’re yet to see that at first-team level, but Klopp will know there is still a lot of unfulfilled potential in his No. 17.

Elliott, too, clearly has the talent to become a star of the future in this Liverpool team.

If we’re ever to see Jones and Elliott at their very best, both need games. Signing another elite midfielder would limit those opportunities even further.

One more year of Ox?

As the 2021/22 campaign drew to a close, Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of the players reported to be on his way out of the club this summer.

In recent weeks, though, the club have indicated a willingness to see him stick around until his contract expires next year.

That may be because Liverpool were unable to secure the services of Tchouameni and have now decided to target a midfielder next year instead.

Despite not playing a single minute for Liverpool since the FA Cup victory at Nottingham Forest in March, Oxlade-Chamberlain made some significant contributions earlier in the campaign – particularly in January, when Keita, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane were away for the Africa Cup of Nations.

There was his all-action display against Atletico Madrid at Anfield last November, key contributions in the cups and important league goals against Brentford and Crystal Palace.

Last December, Klopp even claimed that we were seeing “the best Ox” since his arrival at the club in 2017.

Those contributions make him a valuable squad option and, although he may find himself at the bottom of the midfield pecking order at the start of the season, Klopp can continue to trust him to do a job when called upon.

The Bellingham waiting game

Virgil van Dijk. Alisson. Ibrahima Konate.

Three examples of Liverpool happily waiting until they got exactly who they wanted.

Could Jude Bellingham be the next?

Borussia Dortmund are very unlikely to sell this summer, having already offloaded their other star, Erling Haaland, to Man City earlier this month.

It wouldn’t be at all surprising, though, if the Liverpool recruitment team were putting most, if not all, of their eggs in the Bellingham basket for next summer. Who could blame them?

The Birmingham-born midfielder surely ticks all of the boxes Klopp will want for his next midfield addition.

Having only just turned 19, he would be the leading figure in Liverpool’s midfield for years to come and a natural successor to Henderson.

Work may well already be going on behind the scenes to ensure Anfield is his destination of choice next summer.

If that’s the case, surely no Liverpool fan would begrudge the decision to wait until he’s available.

A change in system?

Some believe Liverpool’s summer transfer business, particularly the signings of Carvalho and Darwin Nunez, points to a change to a 4-2-3-1 formation this season.

That would, of course, mean Klopp would only have to select two midfielders, as opposed to three, which would further justify his decision to stick with the options currently at his disposal.

There is an argument to suggest that Nunez would benefit from being the focal point in Liverpool’s attack, in front of three other offensive players.

Carvalho would be ideal for role behind him, given his experience as a No. 10, with the likes of Salah, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota all capable of performing in any of the front four positions.

It would also mean that the likes of Jones and Elliott would be likely to get more opportunities in more attacking positions, where they are arguably most comfortable.

It is not the first summer a change to a 4-2-3-1 has been theorised among supporters, but could this be the year it really comes to fruition?

Wildcard: a surprise role for Calvin Ramsay?

When it emerged that Liverpool wanted to lure Ramsay away from Aberdeen, the general consensus was that he was being recruited as a right-back option.

He is seen as a player who can ease the load on Trent Alexander-Arnold, similar to Kostas Tsimikas for Andy Robertson on the other side.

That may well be the case, but in his first interview with the club it was intriguing to hear Ramsay himself say that he was also comfortable playing in midfield, having done so as a youth player in Scotland.

There were also external reports that claimed the club viewed Ramsay as a player who could fill a number of roles on the right-hand side.

Could it be that Klopp and his recruitment team have identified him as a player who can be a reliable midfield option?

Ramsay: "I can play a few positions, I think I’m quite composed on the ball, can find a pass, get shots away.

“I can play centre-mid, right-back, right wing. Anywhere really."

— This Is Anfield (@thisisanfield) June 19, 2022

Alexander-Arnold could also be useful further forward, but that seems highly unlikely after Klopp questioned Gareth Southgate’s decision to use his No. 66 in that position at international level last year.

“Why make the best right-back in the world a midfielder?” Good question, Jurgen.

There’s no doubt that a new midfield addition will now be high Julian Ward’s list of priorities.

If it’s not this summer, though, then don’t be surprised if Klopp has something unexpected up his sleeve for the new season.

Trust him, why wouldn’t you?

€120m Bellingham price tag and exclusive Anfield Road End update – Latest Liverpool FC News

Wed, 06/29/2022 - 17:30

Jude Bellingham’s price has been set at €120 million, while This Is Anfield can exclusively reveal new photos of the Anfield Road End expansion.

€120m for Bellingham, you say?

Borussia Dortmund will not entertain offers below €120 million for reported Liverpool Jude Bellingham this summer, according to Sport Bild.

Is €120 million really that much for a player of Bellingham’s potential? And would he cost even more than that next summer?

Those are the questions some Liverpool supporters are asking.

Bellingham turns 19 today and is still scarily young when you consider his achievements in the game so far.

He registered six goals and 14 assists from midfield for Dortmund last season and already has 15 England caps to his name.

Providing he stays fit, you’d imagine his stock is only going to rise in 2022/23 and Liverpool certainly won’t be the only interested party this time next year.

While Bundesliga runners-up Dortmund are unlikely to let Bellingham leave in the same summer Man City swooped in for Erling Haaland, if they really would consider an offer around €120 million, should Liverpool be testing the water?

How much do Liverpool want Bellingham and how much does Bellingham want Liverpool?

10 new photos of Anfield Road End expansion – UPPER tier begins!

Wed, 06/29/2022 - 15:32

Expansion of the Anfield Road End is now really taking shape, with major progress since the end of the season seeing work on the upper tier now beginning.

With Liverpool’s season at Anfield having come to a close on May 23, construction has had weeks of uninterrupted work to take the expansion to another eye-catching level.

At the start of April, foundations had been laid and were in place for the new upper tier to be constructed before joining on to the existing stand.

And now, at the end of June, they have pushed on with speed as the ‘wow’ moment described by Colin Roddy of the contractors, The Buckingham Group, has been delivered as you can now start to appreciate the sheer size of the new stand.

It now towers over the landscape in Stanley Park, which is where the roof is starting to be assembled with cranes at the ready to then put the roof trusses in place.

It ensures the project remains on schedule with Roddy having told This Is Anfield back in March that “you’ll really get a feeling for the height of the structure at about the end of June start of July.

“We hope to see the first grandstand steel go up and we can appreciate what we’re building here.”

And what they are building is a structure that will see “the eventual roof be approximately 40 metres, which is nine metres shorter than the Main Stand, to give you some perspective.”

It makes for an exciting new development for the £80 million project, which will add 7,000 extra seats and take the Anfield Road End capacity to 15,967 fans, boosting the stadium to 61,015.

The existing roof will be removed during one of two possible windows – during the Qatar World Cup or the end of the 2022/23 season – with the expansion due for completion in summer 2023.

Mo Salah links up with Gini Wijnaldum in surprise Liverpool reunion

Wed, 06/29/2022 - 14:05

Mohamed Salah has been spending his off-season on holiday with his family, but found time for a reunion with old Liverpool team-mate Gini Wijnaldum in Dubai.

Salah and Wijnaldum spent four years together at Anfield, making 182 appearances alongside each other as key cogs in Jurgen Klopp‘s successful side.

But the Dutchman opted to depart Liverpool on a free transfer at the end of the 2020/21 campaign, joining Paris Saint-Germain in a lucrative deal that, it is fair to say, has not panned out as hoped.

However, Wijnaldum did end his first season in Paris as a Ligue 1 champion, playing 31 times in the French top flight as PSG finished 15 points clear of second-placed Marseille.

The 31-year-old has headed into the summer with question marks over his future, and tentative links with a return to the Premier League.

Before that, though, he has been enjoying his post-season holiday in Dubai, where he was joined by Salah this week:

Reminiscing pic.twitter.com/rZHCLa1G4T

Mohamed Salah (@MoSalah) June 29, 2022

In a short and sharp post on Twitter, the Egyptian shared a photo of the pair sat down for dinner, with the caption “reminiscing.”

Salah and Wijnaldum have a lot of fond memories from their time together at Liverpool, of course, having won the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup as part of one of the most dominant sides in the club’s history.

It is unfortunate how it has unfolded for Wijnaldum so far at PSG, but hopefully he can find his feet either in Paris or at another club for the campaign ahead.

There is very little chance of a return to Liverpool, of course, with Klopp’s midfield already well-stocked and plans in place for a high-profile addition next summer.

How Harvey Elliott could play a key role in next Liverpool evolution

Tue, 06/28/2022 - 18:00
Harvey Elliott‘s ankle dislocation curtailed what had been a promising rise at Liverpool – now fully fit, he could star for the Reds this coming season.

Last summer, there was some anticipation surrounding the ever-growing reputation of Elliott, returning from an impressive loan spell at Blackburn.

Still, not many predicted him to not only start three of the opening four Premier League games, including against Chelsea, but start them in central midfield.

He shone with a brave display in the 2-0 win over Burnley, and was even better in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield, slotting in seamlessly.

Keeping Thiago on the bench, the Englishman provided guile and courage in midfield as part of the new-look triangle on the right-hand side with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah.

Sadly, Elliott’s progress was cut short by a horror left ankle fracture-dislocation at Leeds and it was almost five months before he returned, scoring his first-ever Reds goal with a swivelling half-volley against Cardiff.

From that game onwards, though, he started just three times – only once in the league – and he was ineffective when thrown into the lineup away to Inter Milan.

The magnitude of the games post-Christmas required experienced heads, so it was invariably any three from Fabinho, Thiago, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita used by Klopp.

Elliott himself accepted that his lack of intensity in training played a part in amassing just 336 minutes on the pitch following his injury return.

“It’s been tough, there have been a few downfalls and I don’t think I’ve played as much as wanted to since I’ve been back, but hopefully there are many years to come of me playing football,” Elliott admitted to This Is Anfield in May.

[embedded content]

“There were a couple of weeks where I wasn’t training at my best, I wasn’t performing to the best of my ability and I knew that in myself.”

Because of that, the short attention span of modern football means Elliott’s stock has fallen and he isn’t considered a regular starter next season by some.

Those early-season appearances are proof that he can be, though.

Liverpool’s Foden?

There are clear similarities between Elliott and Phil Foden, in terms of their playing style and pedigree.

Both short in stature but supreme in natural ability, they possess stereotypically wand-like left feet, thriving with a low centre of gravity.

They play for their respective boyhood teams and have both been earmarked as future superstars since secondary school age, so the comparisons are understandable.

In fact, Elliott should be looking at Foden as the perfect role model – someone who is three years his senior and who similarly had to bide his time before becoming a fixture in City’s team.

When Foden was 19, he was about to embark on a season that still only rendered nine league starts, but also 38 appearances in all competitions.

He wasn’t the main man under Pep Guardiola, but in the two seasons since, he has won back-to-back PFA Young Player of the Year awards and become a leading player for club and country.

Elliott’s career may not mirror Foden’s by 22, but it is easy to envisage his 2022/23 campaign being similar to the latter’s 2019/20, in terms of impact and playing time.

Somewhere close to 40 appearances in all competitions would be considered a success, as long as his creative numbers are healthy.

Elliott has the ability to open up defences and add a new dimension to the midfield, while his pass completion rate in the league last season (84.3%) was superior to Jordan Henderson (83.8%), James Milner (83.2%) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (78.9%).

Consistency will come with time, but Klopp has called him a “fearless boy” and will know he has a jewel up his sleeve – someone with that healthy dose of arrogance that is required in elite footballers.

One year older and even more comfortable in his surroundings, this could be Elliott’s moment to go up a gear.

New gear, competition & system tweaks

Liverpool fans love a transfer soap opera and the current talking point is the Reds not signing another midfielder this summer.

While that is causing plenty of ire, especially with Milner, Thiago and Henderson now in their 30s – Fabinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain turn 29 this year, too – Elliott could feel like a new signing.

He will be well-rested after enjoying a summer holiday, while a full pre-season can only bode well.

Now expected to take the No. 19 shirt, this suggests that Elliott’s squad status is naturally enhanced and that he is considered a regular part of Klopp’s plans.

Away from his No. 8 role in a 4-3-3 system, there is also the potential for him to be used in a 4-2-3-1, should Klopp opt to switch his formation.

Elliott has the guile to thrive as a No. 10 in front of a double pivot, allowing him more freedom, providing chances for the front three.

His fruitful spell at Blackburn saw him score seven goals and register 11 assists in the Championship – a superb effort in a tough league, especially as a teenager.

Elliott’s versatility means he is also capable of doing a job in a right-sided attacking berth, as was predominantly the case at Ewood Park.

He lacks Salah’s electric pace and dynamism, which is a drawback, but that natural ability to drift inside and create space for Alexander-Arnold can make him a good option there.

The signing of Fabio Carvalho will immediately make midfield competition greater, with the 19-year-old starting 32 of his 33 appearances in the No. 10 position last season.

But their shared experience coming through the youth ranks at Fulham could see an exciting tandem form at Liverpool.

Greg Cruttwell, the founder of Carvalho’s youth club Balham FC, believes that he suits Klopp “down to the bone,” and Elliott himself told This Is Anfield that he is a “great kid as well as a great player.”

It is easy to forget about Curtis Jones, too, and he is another who should be expected to take another positive leap in the right direction.

Elliott is a raw player who is still learning, and while moments of magic are to be expected, so are learning curves along the way.

Frustrating displays are to be expected, as was the case with a teenage Steven Gerrard, but Liverpool have a special young player who would already be a more cemented figure had injury not occurred.

Expectations and excitement surrounding him should be great, given his talent.

And while a new midfielder still wouldn’t go amiss, the Reds may already have a secret weapon ready to explode.

Klopp’s ‘super’ message for Minamino & Neco ‘next to leave’ – Latest LFC News

Tue, 06/28/2022 - 17:06

Takumi Minamino‘s departure from Liverpool has been confirmed and that has seen fans and Jurgen Klopp heap praise on his contributions, while Neco Williams‘ exit is expected to be next.

Klopp lauds a ‘manager’s dream’

With Minamino’s move to Monaco now confirmed, in a deal worth £15.4 million, Klopp took the time to celebrate a forward who made a lasting contribution to the club.

The 27-year-old was the top goalscorer in both the League Cup (4) and FA Cup (3) last season and set the Reds on course to do a domestic cup double, a feat that is not lost on any Red.

And while his game time was limited, the manager knows Minamino “made us better” and had plenty to say as he wish his No. 18 well on the next chapter of his career.

“It’s hard to see Taki go, but it’s a great move for him and one he thoroughly deserves,” Klopp told the club’s official website.

“An amazing professional; super, talented player. As a person, he is full of warmth and makes everyone feel positive. A manager’s dream, to be honest.

“I’m sure there will be those who think it didn’t quite work out. Those who think this are wrong. I don’t accept that.

“His contribution far outweighs the opportunities we were able to give, in terms of starting matches. He made us better each and every day he was with us – not just in the games he played in but every single session in training. Perfect attitude, winner’s mentality.

“His performances and his goals are the reason we have had to redecorate the Champions Wall so often. His achievements here will stand the test of time.”

Well said, boss.

Liverpool fans show gratitude for Takumi Minamino’s “vital role” after Monaco move

Tue, 06/28/2022 - 16:14

After two-and-a-half years with Liverpool, Takumi Minamino‘s time at Anfield has come to an end with a move to Monaco now confirmed, leaving fans to show appreciation for his contributions.

The Ligue 1 side have secured his signature on a four-year contract in a deal worth £15.4 million, with a new chapter now ahead for the Japan international.

The 27-year-old joined the Reds at the most ideal and simultaneously unfortunate time, with a Premier League title on the cusp of being secured and a pandemic grinding the world to a halt.

It left little time to settle with his new teammates after joining from Salzburg in January 2020, and he never quite broke into Jurgen Klopp‘s first team.

But that does not mean he was without vital contributions, his efforts in the League Cup and FA Cup last season were key to Jordan Henderson giving us a trophy shuffle in each.

And fans were quick to show their appreciation to Minamino after his move was confirmed on Tuesday.

CONFIRMED – Takumi Minamino joins Monaco on permanent deal

Tue, 06/28/2022 - 16:00

Takumi Minamino has left Liverpool after two-and-a-half years, with the versatile forward joining Monaco in a deal worth over two times the fee he arrived for.

The club has now confirmed the transfer, with the Japanese swapping Liverpool for Monaco for £12.9 million rising to £15.5 million.

That represents an £8 million profit on the fee paid to sign him from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020.

It was often a thankless task for Minamino at Anfield, filling in when required but never cementing himself as a regular starter.

His arrival on Merseyside came in lockdown, bringing a unique challenge for a player who barely spoke English, and understandably he spent the second half of 2020/21 on loan with Southampton.

But the 27-year-old returned to play a key role in the remarkable campaign just gone, scoring 10 and assisting one in only 22 appearances.

Only Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino netted more than Minamino, who averaged a goal or assist every 81.3 minutes in all competitions.

 Terry/Sportimage Credit: Sportimage/Alamy Live News)

He was vital on the road to the FA Cup and League Cup finals but featured in neither of the victories over Chelsea at Wembley, which was clearly a blow for the No. 18.

In a recent interview, Minamino claimed that most of the games he played in “weren’t of interest to anyone,” and it is no surprise, then, that he sought a permanent exit this summer.

The forward departs having made 55 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 14 goals, and will be remembered fondly for his contribution at Anfield.

All the best, Taki!

Aston Villa midfielder “highly thought of” at Liverpool – contract expires in 2023

Tue, 06/28/2022 - 14:35

As Liverpool consider midfield targets for next summer, Aston Villa youngster Carney Chukwuemeka has emerged as an alternative to Jude Bellingham.

Despite calls for another signing in the middle of the park during the current transfer window, the Reds are expected to wait until 2023 to do so.

According to The Athletic‘s James Pearce, the plan, as ever, is “finding the right midfielder at the right price rather than settling for second-best or a stop-gap.”

Pearce adds: “They are prepared to wait until 2023 unless an attractive proposition emerges in the coming weeks.”

The lead candidate in this respect is Borussia Dortmund midfielder Bellingham, who is tipped to leave the Westfalenstadion next summer.

With Dortmund having already sold Erling Haaland to Man City, it is unlikely they will part ways with Bellingham in the same summer, but if they do change their mind late in the window he would certainly fit into the “attractive proposition” category.

Liverpool will never put all of their eggs in the same basket, of course, despite their respectable stance in not “settling for a stop-gap.”

GOAL‘s Neil Jones has detailed other names that are considered on the club’s radar as, according to sources within Liverpool, a “‘Bellingham-type’.”

West Ham‘s Declan Rice is admired but “seen as expensive,” while Jurgen Klopp “rates [Inter Milan’s Nicolo] Barella in particular” and Red Bull Salzburg’s Luka Sucic is “viewed as a potentially-elite prospect.”

Perhaps most intriguing, however, are links with Chukwuemeka.

Chukwuemeka, who is only 18, was born in Austria to Nigerian parents but represents England at youth level having been raised in Northampton, where he moved as a young boy.

So far at this summer’s U19 Euros, the six-foot teenager has scored twice in three games, deployed in a two-man midfield in a 4-2-3-1 formation and wearing the captain’s armband in the 1-0 win over Israel.

For his club, Chukwuemeka has already played 16 times at senior level, including 11 outings under current Villa manager Steven Gerrard, who rates him highly.

Gerrard said in May: “I think again me and my staff have shown huge trust putting an 18-year-old in, but we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t think he was ready or had the ability to cope.”

But despite the legendary midfielder’s praise, there is no indication yet that Chukwuemeka will extend his stay at Villa Park beyond the end of his contract in 2023.

That could be where Liverpool come in, whose interest dates back to 2020, with a cut-price compensation deal following a trend seen with the likes of Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho.

In November, the Guardian reported that Chukwuemeka had no intention of signing a new deal, though his plans may have changed since then.

While Jones suggests that the youngster “might join Dortmund,” SPORT1 journalist Patrick Berger claims “there is no agreement” and he “will not join” the Bundesliga club.

With Bellingham expected to be valued at over £100 million next summer, perhaps Liverpool could instead cut out the middle man and go straight for Chukwuemeka.

5 things we’re looking forward to from Liverpool’s 2022 pre-season

Mon, 06/27/2022 - 18:03

The break between last season and the next was a needed one, but with Jurgen Klopp‘s side on the cusp of their return, there is plenty to look forward to during pre-season.

Five weeks after Liverpool’s season came to a close in Paris, they will reconvene at Kirkby to commence their preparations for 2022/23.

It is to be a busy schedule for the Reds with just 33 days between the pre-season start on July 4 and their opening Premier League game at Fulham on August 6.

In that time, they will take trips to Thailand, Singapore, Austria, Germany and then make a return to England for two further games, making for another busy summer ahead.

With six friendlies confirmed, three new signings and a fresh start to go on a trophy charge once more, we’re not short of things to be excited about.

First sighting of the new trio

Liverpool love to get their business done early when they can, and we love it.

Fabio Carvalho, Darwin Nunez and Calvin Ramsay have all been added to the fold as the Reds acted proactively to land their targets, leaving fans to only be excited about what they will offer.

They each arrive with different expectations but all being on the younger end of the age spectrum ensures Klopp is not to expect the world from them straight away.

What will be interesting to see is where Carvalho starts initially, it is to be as part of the forward contingent so how will he gel with those around him and will we see a link-up with former Fulham teammate Harvey Elliott?

Then there is Ramsay, he’s likened himself to Trent Alexander-Arnold in the attacking aspect of his game and it is to be intriguing to see what he can offer and how soon we could potentially see him in competitive games.

And the soon-to-be club-record transfer Nunez, he’s more of a traditional forward that we’ve not turned to often but he looks to offer a new dynamic and the capacity for a system change…

A formation change?

Speaking of system changes, we look set to get a glimpse at what Klopp has in store for us this season with tweaks certainly to come as a team can never stay stagnate.

Last season it was the “flexible right triangle” that was the obvious shift from the coaches and this time we could be headed for a look at a 4-2-3-1 formation.

We’ve seen it before throughout Klopp’s tenure but not with any consistency, but Nunez’s arrival could trigger a change as the Reds push for more unpredictability.

This could then answer our Carvalho question with the No. 10 role opening up, a position Roberto Firmino could also fill, as we’ve seen on occasion.

It’s a time for experimentation and with a host of players to be involved, Klopp will not be short on options to see his new plans come to life.

A young gem to shine

There’s always at least one academy player that rises to the fore every summer, taking the chances provided and thriving as a result.

Last year, the likes of Tyler Morton, Owen Beck, Conor Bradley and Kaide Gordon worked shoulder to shoulder with the first team and they all then went on to make their debut during the season.

There is always the ethos at Anfield that if you’re good enough, you’re old enough and pre-season offers us that chance to see who could be next in line to give Klopp something to think about.

Could it be prolific under-18s forward Oakley Cannonier, Isaac Mabaya, Mateusz Musialowski, Stefan Bajcetic or a new youth recruit in Ben Doak?

Not long until we find out!

Steps for Jones and Elliott

The 2021/22 campaign was interrupted for both Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott.

The former saw an eye injury force him to sit out for 12 games, while Elliott’s horror ankle injury sidelined him for nearly five months, offering a chance to start anew this coming season.

With another midfielder not expected to be added this summer, the pair will be asked to take another step up in their development and each has their own points to prove throughout pre-season.

Competition for places is fierce but both are more than worthy of a regular spot in Klopp’s XI, but Elliott will be eager to showcase his game-changing ability while Jones the continuation of his maturing game.

It’s far from make-or-break for either, but there is a real opportunity in pre-season for both to showcase that they can be readily turned to by the manager from the off.

The Reds back travelling the globe

With the pandemic having forced Liverpool to remain closer to home in recent years, they finally have the chance to travel beyond Europe this summer.

It is to see the club enjoy their first pre-season tour in three years and their first trip to the Far East since 2017, with Thailand and Singapore on the agenda this time around.

Man United await in the former on July 12 and Crystal Palace in the latter on July 15.

It is also a chance for a lot of the Liverpool players to have arrived since the start of the pandemic to feel how far support for the club travels, and it will be some sight.

For overseas supporters, it’s an incredible feeling to have your team come to where you are in the world and while it may only be a short trip, it is to be a memorable one for all involved.

A return to more normalcy is always welcome and this is just the ticket. Up the global Reds!

Bellingham ‘more than interested’ in Reds move – Latest Liverpool FC News

Mon, 06/27/2022 - 16:49

Jude Bellingham is a name readily linked to Liverpool and he is ‘more than interested’ in a future move, while Neco Williams‘ price tag has Fulham holding back.

Bellingham’s ‘interest’ in a Liverpool move…

Liverpool’s search for a midfielder has been widely reported to be on the agenda for 2023, with Jude Bellingham’s name prominently featuring in that discussion.

The Reds do not want to settle and the 18-year-old would represent a long-term investment with Borussia Dortmund not to let him go on the cheap, not to mention wages.

But while Liverpool are one of many suitors for the young midfielder, would Bellingham himself be interested?

Well, Goal’s Neil Jones has reported that “it is understood the player would be more than interested in a move to Merseyside,” with only the figures behind the deal perhaps proving prohibitive for the Reds.

It’s a transfer that is on the wishlist of many Liverpool fans but a fee could be in the region of £100 million, with that only to rise with a successful season and World Cup campaign.

With Man United, Chelsea and Man City also among the suitors, it’s looking like a potential bidding war but having the player onside is always helpful.

As for other targets of interest, Jones namechecks Aston Villa‘s Carney Chukwuemeka, Inter’s Nicola Barella, PSV’s Ibrahim Sangare and Salzburg’s Luka Sucic as those also on the radar.

From that, it is clear that a young midfielder who can make an impact in the short and long term is on the agenda – but we can cross our fingers that it will, in fact, be Bellingham.

Liverpool academy players return for pre-season – with new coach starting first day

Mon, 06/27/2022 - 14:53

While Jurgen Klopp‘s first team will not start their preparations for the new season until next week, the academy players returned on Monday – and a new coach got his first day in the job.

After a relentless 2021/22 campaign, a summer break was much deserved by all but the new season is now nearly upon us and that makes for pre-season training.

The first team schedule is to see Liverpool contest at least six games before they travel to Fulham for the season opener, with Klopp expected to turn to a number of academy players.

Last year, the likes of Leighton Clarkson, Kaide Gordon, Owen Beck, Tyler Morton, Jake Cain and Conor Bradley seized their chance and others will hope to do the same this time around.

And the academy players have a head start, returning to Kirkby on Monday with their own pre-season friendlies to be on the billing ahead of both the under-21s and under-18s seeing their season get underway.

Former midfielder Jay Spearing is also to play his role this summer having joined the club in a dual player/coach role, combining game time with the U21s with full-time coaching for the U18s.

The 33-year-old welcomed a “new chapter” – that started in typical English rain despite it being summer, offering a cool start to the new season for all at the academy.

Harvey Blair, one of seven academy debutants last season, was one of the young Reds to post his return to Kirkby on Instagram, ready to get “back to business.”

Barry Lewtas and Marc Bridge-Wilkinson oversee the U21s and U18s respectively and were also said to be joined by Pep Lijnders on Monday, with the assistant manager always keeping a close eye on the emerging talent.

And his keen eye could see a handful drafted into first-team training next week.

Liverpool’s youngest-ever goalscorer on trial at Preston after summer release

Mon, 06/27/2022 - 12:24

After being released by Liverpool, Ben Woodburn is now on the search for a new home and it has taken him to the Championship’s Preston North End.

The 22-year-old was one of seven players released by the club at the conclusion of last season, leaving the academy graduate with a permanent home to find.

Woodburn has spent the last few years on four different loan spells, including Sheffield United, Oxford, Blackpool and most recently Hearts, with the latter being the only remotely successful one.

It has seen his development take a hit, after being on the periphery of Jurgen Klopp‘s squad in 2016/17 and becoming the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer at 17 years and 45 days.

It makes for a pivotal summer for Woodburn and according to the Daily Mail, he is training with Preston as part of a two-week trial to “maintain his fitness” and “try and impress manager Ryan Lowe.”

 Sunday September 12, 2021.

 Sunday September 12, 2021.

Woodburn leaves Liverpool with 11 career appearances to his name, the last of which came in 2018, but it is with Hearts where he found the most consistency with 30 appearances across 2021/22.

And now another opportunity is before him at a club that saw Sepp van den Berg thrive over the course of his two loan spells.

Lancashire Live states that “there is scope for another attacking midfielder with creativity” for Preston this summer, but midfield is not “a priority position.”

Manager Lowe is a product of Liverpool’s academy and has readily provided opportunities for players to train with his team since arriving at Preston, with Woodburn now the latest.

And the hope is he soon finds somewhere he can settle and thrive.
