Liverpool’s New Training Centre Almost Complete

One of the Premier League’s most popular teams has been hard at work building a new training complex. Today, it was announced by Liverpool that their new £50 Million Training Facility will be completed before the beginning of the 2020 – 2021 Season. Liverpool’s builders have created a modernized facility with state-of-the-art features, with released images indicating that progress is rushing. Liverpool also provided concept photos for how the training site will look by summer 2020.

Liverpool has located their new training complex in the Kirkby, which is located twenty minutes away from the metropolis city. The football sporting organization revealed that the compound is 9200 Square-Metres, with multiple fields and features to assist footballers with their training. This massive facility won’t only host the Liverpool Premier League Team but will also have all academies operating at the same site. This is the first time that the Academy and Professional teams will engage with each other in the club’s history.

Building progress indicates that the rate of speed has increased significantly, with all the internal and external brickwork being laid. Builders have begun completing the interior portion of the Liverpool Training Complex, while outdoor crews create the new training fields. Landscaping has already started before the winter-season, showing that Liverpool wants to finish all outdoor work before the snow comes down on England. These landscaping crews are using artificial fibre for the fields and surrounding grass, enabling for training to remain active throughout the winter season. Ground maintenance will include pitch irrigation and smaller sites for local children clubs.

Details on the Complex

Liverpool’s new training complex wouldn’t have been built if it wasn’t for Jurgen Klopp, the Head Manager for the Premier League team. He consulted the team’s owners and multiple city officials in regard towards a new complex. Working alongside architects and builders, he made numerous proposals for sites located around Liverpool. It would take two years before Kirkby would accept his bid.

Throughout development, Jurgen Klopp has mentioned multiple times that Liverpool’s longstanding history will be displayed throughout the training complex. Those training at this facility can expect two gyms, an indoor sports hall, hydrotherapy service, heated pool and sports rehabilitation services. There will also be a dedicated media centre with press conference rooms, a television studio and multiple offices. Outside of the facility, there will be two pavilions, stands for season pass holders and community areas to meet the players. However, Liverpool hasn’t announced which days the facility will be publicly open for seasons pass holders.

Liverpool eager for more after cementing Champions League legacy

Liverpool’s success in last season’s Champions League was the culmination of what had been a roller-coaster ride to the final.

The Reds’ 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur was achieved in comfortable fashion, although the road to Madrid had been anything but smooth.

Read on as we look at how Liverpool overcame the odds to lift European club football’s most prestigious trophy and assess their chances of repeating the trick this season.

Epic fightback stuns Barcelona

Liverpool sneaked through the group stage, before comfortably disposing of Bayern Munich and Porto in the first two knockout rounds.

They looked to be on their way out of the competition after losing 3-0 against Barcelona in the first leg of their semi-final tie.

However, they produced a stunning comeback in the reverse fixture to seal a memorable 4-3 aggregate victory.

With Spurs also recovering from a three-goal deficit in their last four tie against Ajax, the final contained two English clubs for the first time since 2008.

Liverpool make it six

The result of the final never looked in doubt from the moment Mohamed Salah put Liverpool ahead from the penalty spot after just two minutes.

Spurs failed to create many chances and on the rare occasions they did break through they found Reds goalkeeper Alisson in fine form.

Divock Origi’s late goal was the icing on the cake for Liverpool in a game that struggled to live up to the drama provided by the semi-finals.

However, with only Real Madrid (13) and AC Milan (7) ahead of them in the list of winners of the competition, Liverpool can rightly claim to be one of Europe’s finest clubs.

Defending the trophy will be tough

Madrid won the Champions League three times in a row between 2016 and 2018, but no other side has retained the trophy since Milan achieved the feat back in 1990.

Liverpool were beaten by Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Napoli during pre-season and will have to play much better when the competition gets underway in September.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has yet to make any major signings this summer and that could hinder their hopes of success this time around.

However, Liverpool proved last season that it is foolish to write them off and they will be eager to make it to through to their third successive Champions League final.
