August 15th, 2022. According to Klopp, the club will not buy any player but a player that will fit in perfectly with the 

formation of that team.

It has to be the right player, not just a player. If we had the right solution then we would have done it already. We are 

not stubborn. We have had a lot of conversations already and it doesn’t look like anything will happen.

EPL: What Liverpool, Man United fans did for Ronaldo over son's death

Liverpool and Manchester United fans united on Tuesday in support of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The two clubs’ fans came together during tonight’s crunch league clash following news of the Portugal international’s baby son’s death.

Ronaldo had on Monday night announced that he and his partner Georgina Rodriguez’s baby son had died.

The baby died during childbirth and for this reason, he was excused from the Manchester United game against Liverpool.

However, both club’s fans paid their respects to the football icon and his family and rose to their feet to clap during the seventh minute of the match.

Liverpool are already leading United with a 3rd-minute effort from Luis Diaz and fans still took time to clap for Ronaldo.

Liverpool fans also sang their popular ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ song for the Portugal international and his family.

Also, both sets of players wore black armbands in respect of the 37-year-old former Real Madrid and Juventus star. Dailypost

EPL: Liverpool identify player to sign as Salah’s replacement

Liverpool have reportedly identified Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah in the future.

Salah is out of contract with Liverpool next year.

The Egyptian captain declined a contract offer from the Premier League giants last December.

Salah and Liverpool are both eager to sign a new contract, but the Reds are yet to accede to the player’s demands.

According to Fichajes (via The Hard Tackle), Liverpool will turn to Dembele if Salah does not sign a new deal.

Dembele has endured an injury-ridden stint at Barcelona since joining the Catalan club from Borussia Dortmund for £126 million in 2017.

The report added that Liverpool are also interested in Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria, Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio and Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry. Dailypost

Champions League: Klopp names 6 Liverpool captains

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has named six captains in his squad.

The players have voted for three more captains in addition to the three Klopp initially appointed.

This follows the departure of Gini Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Wijnaldium was Liverpool’s fourth-choice captain behind senior skipper Jordan Henderson, vice-captain James Milner and third-choice Virgil van Dijk.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Porto in the Champions League, Klopp has confirmed that a new vote has recently taken place and three players have now stepped up.

“We had the three who stayed, and then the players voted for another three.
“The three [who stayed] are obviously Hendo, Millie and Virg, and then the next most votes were Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Robbo [Andy Robertson] and Alisson Becker.

“Obviously we had a problem last year from time to time that so many players couldn’t play that we had no-one in the players’ committee available [to captain], so I thought it made sense to increase this group a little bit, and that’s what we did,” Klopp said. Dailypost

Liverpool approve £9.5m Shaqiri sale to Lyon

Liverpool midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is joining Lyon in a £9.5 million ($13m) deal, Goal understands.

The clubs have agreed a fee for the 29-year-old and Lyon confirmed on Sunday that he will have a medical on Monday before finalising the transfer.

Personal terms are already agreed and it is understood Shaqiri will sign a four-year contract with the Ligue 1 club.

What’s the deal?

Liverpool had rejected Lyon’s initial offer, thought to be worth only £4m, earlier this month, with sources describing that particular bid as “ridiculous.”

But the determination of Lyon’s sporting director, Juninho Pernambucano, and manager Peter Bosz to land their top summer target has meant, after lengthy negotiations, a deal could be agreed.

"Olympique Lyonnais is pleased to have finally reached an agreement in principle with Liverpool for the transfer of the Swiss international midfielder, Xherdan Shaqiri," a statement on Lyon's website read.

"Shaqiri, who is encouraged by the OL project, will arrive in Lyon tonight where he will be welcomed by Juninho. The finalisation of the transfer remains conditional on the result of the medical examination that the player will pass this Monday morning and the finalisation of the last administrative formalities."

Shaqiri had informed the Reds of his desire to leave this summer in search of regular game time. He will leave having made 63 appearances for the club since joining from Stoke in 2018, and as a Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League winner.

Will Liverpool look to replace him?

That seems unlikely, in terms of a direct replacement. Harvey Elliott, the gifted 18-year-old, looks to have already filled Shaqiri’s squad position, as a player who can play either as part of a midfield three or wide on the right of the attack.

Elliott made his first Premier League start in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Burnley, while Liverpool are also enthused by the progress of another teenager, 16-year-old Kaide Gordon, whose development will be watched closely.

Jurgen Klopp has hinted that it is unlikely there will be any further midfield additions before the transfer window closes, though it remains to be seen whether Liverpool look to add an attacker. They are still open to offers for Divock Origi, who was not in the squad against Burnley, while defenders Nat Phillips and Neco Williams may also attract bids in the coming days. (Goal)

'It's not up to me' - Mohamed Salah says Liverpool future out of his control as transfer rumours swirl

Mohamed Salah has declined to pledge his future to Liverpool, saying a potential move elsewhere as soon as this summer is "not up to me".

The 29-year-old, though still prolific in front of net, has endured his most difficult stretch with the Reds as the club has dropped to seventh in the Premier League. Perceived friction stemming from the recent slump has led to speculation about a possible Anfield exit.

Salah has at times appeared at odds with Jurgen Klopp, most recently showing disdain at being subbed off against Chelsea three weeks ago. The Egyptian, who has netted 17 league goals this year, described his relationship with the manager as "professional" but stopped short of a full endorsement.

What has been said?

Salah spoke to Marca ahead of Liverpool's Champions League clash with Real Madrid and answered questions related to his future with the Reds.
"It's not up to me [whether I stay]," Salah told the publication. "We'll see what happens but I prefer not to talk about that now.

"[My relationship with Klopp] is a normal relationship between two professionals. That's how I'd describe it."

Near the end of the interview, Salah left the door open to a potential Spain move, however he didn't suggest such a switch was imminent.
"I hope to be able to play for many more years," Salah said. "Why not? No one knows what's going to happen in the future, so... maybe one day [I will play in in Spain], yes." (Goal)

EPL: Klopp points out what Liverpool players want after 1-0 defeat to Fulham

Liverpool boss manager, has revealed that all that his boys want is just to win matches at the moment.

The Reds were beaten by Fulham, a bottom 3 team at Anfield on Sunday making their chance of finishing in the top four slimmer.

Mario Lemina’s first half strike was Scott Parker’s relegation battling side need to give the title holders their 6th straight defeat.

“My boys want to win football games, I know that. We got enough knocks to make it clear that we really want it with all we have. We couldn’t do it, that’s the problem. But when he says that, the winner is always right,” Klopp told Liverpool official website.

“Believe me, these boys want [it] but it doesn’t work in the moment and there are some reasons for it: we don’t score goals and we concede at least one, which in the moment looks like it is enough against us.

“They wanted to win this game today. I saw that. We made mistakes still, that’s the problem, but that’s not about you don’t want it – the boys don’t want to make mistakes, we just made them.

“We have to make sure the mistakes we make are not accountable anymore, so like you can concede a goal – we conceded goals in our best phases, the best periods of our lives, but the only thing is then you are not bothered about it. That’s where we have to come. “ Dailypost

UEFA pick preferred venue for Liverpool Champions League tie as Reds barred from Germany

Liverpool's Champions League visit to Leipzig has been switched to a neutral venue.

After lengthy talks with UEFA, the German government refused to allow any exemptions for elite athletes, to a mandate banning entry on all arrivals into the country, from areas affected by Covid-19 mutations until at least February 17.

That means the English club will be banned from entering Germany on the original date scheduled for the first leg, which is February 16.

UEFA responded by naming Buadpest’s Puskas Arena as their mandated alternative venue, but have given Leipzig dispensation to find an alternative acceptable to the governing body and the German government.

That means Liverpool will have to wait to learn where they will be travelling for the game, with the Reds due to fly in just 11 days time.

It is understood discussions also took place over a possible switch for the tie, allowing the first leg to be staged at Anfield on February 16, with the return in Germany on March 10.

But there are no guarantees the current German restrictions will be lifted by March, and could even be tightened.

Leipzig will now be given time to look at alternative venues, in countries which have no recorded cases of the UK Covid mutation.

A statement from the German government confirming their decision to ban Liverpool’s entry read: "The Corona Protection Ordinance passed by the German government last Friday provides for only a few exceptions and no special regulations for professional athletes.

"The Federal Police informed the club RB Leipzig today that the described case constellation does not fall under the exceptions."

UEFA could still decide that the tie is played in a single game in a neutral venue, but the indications from Europe’s governing body so far suggest that they want to maintain the two leg format for as long as possible, and will push ahead on a two legged tie. (

EPL: Why Man Utd’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool will not be good result – Ole Solskjaer

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said the team’s 0-0 draw at Liverpool will only be a good result if they win their next game.

The Red Devils played out a goalless draw at Anfield.

The result ensures United remain at the top of the table, two points ahead of Leicester City with 18 fixtures played.

“It is only a good result if we win the next game. It was an opportunity missed with the chances we had. But again we were playing a very good side.

“I’m disappointed, but still a point is okay if you win the next one.

“We were stronger towards the end. We didn’t start at all in the first half. We didn’t have any composure or try to impose ourselves,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport.

United travel to Fulham next on Wednesday, January 20. Dailypost

FA Cup draw: Manchester United face Liverpool in round four cracker

Holders Arsenal face a trip to either Southampton or Shrewsbury, while minnows Chorley face Premier League big guns Wolves
Manchester United have been pulled out alongside Liverpool in the undoubted glamour tie of the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The two sides will meet in the Premier League on January 17, before meeting in the FA Cup a week later.

The FA took the decision to have the fourth and fifth round draws on the same day in order to aid with fixture scheduling on account of the condensed, coronavirus-affected season.

The fourth round ties will take place over the weekend of January 23, with the fifth round in the week of February 8.

Holders Arsenal required extra time before seeing off Newcastle to reach the fourth round and they will take on Southampton or Shrewsbury.

Manchester City lifted the trophy in 2019, and eased into the fourth round courtesy of a comfortable win over Birmingham and they face a trip to Cheltenham.

Liverpool lead the way in the Premier League, but have not won the FA Cup since 2006. They eased past a depleted Aston Villa side in round three to set up a clash with big rivals Manchester United who have started 2021 in style.

Chelsea snapped a poor run of form over the Christmas and New Year period by seeing off Morecambe to set up a meeting with Luton.

Crawley caused a huge shock to dump out Premier League side Leeds and their reward is a clash against Bournemouth - with the carrot of a meeting with Fulham or Burnley in the fifth round.

National League North side Chorley dumped Derby out of the competition and will meet Wolves in round four. Should they progres there is a potential meeting with holders Arsenal in round five. (Goal)

Southampton vs Liverpool: Why we lost 1-0 in EPL clash – Liverpool boss Klopp

Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has said that his team was defeated 1-0 against Southampton in the Premier League on Monday night because the Reds had a bad start in the game.

Klopp said that Liverpool played completely into Southampton’s hands and gave the game away to the hosts.

Southampton defeated Liverpool at St Mary’s Stadium, thanks to Danny Ings’s first-half goal.

“A big one, to be honest. Very frustrating, just because it’s so unnecessary, but it still happens,” Klopp said at his post-match press conference.

“We had a bad start in the game, we played completely into Southampton’s hands and gave the game away, we’ve to admit now, in the first few minutes because after that we weren’t calm enough to create the opportunities to turn it around.

“The first half was massively influenced by the start, but with the break, it meant we could settle it a little bit.

“Then we were dominant in the right areas, had the moments, but then the decision-making was not that good. The last pass, we missed the last pass.”

Liverpool’s next match is against Aston Villa in the FA Cup third-round tie on Friday. Dailypost
