Jurgen Klopp lets rip at TNT Sports in rant about Liverpool fixtures

[ad_1] Telegraph Sport has been told a number of stakeholders and factors are taken into consideration when it comes to Premier League fixture scheduling, including fans’ travel arrangements, clubs competing in other competitions, broadcast slots and local authority matters including policing. A ban was also introduced three years ago on TNT picking teams for the Saturday 12.30pm slot if they were playing away in the Champions League the Wednesday night beforehand. TNT is also prohibited from selecting a single club for that slot on more than six occasions. Klopp still furious at VAR howler in Liverpool defeat to Tottenham Klopp says he has ‘500 reasons’ for wanting to beat Tottenham this weekend following the controversial meeting of the sides earlier this season. Liverpool were denied a legal Luis Diaz goal in their 2-1 defeat to Spurs in October, VAR failing to communicate correctly that the Colombian was onside. The PGMOL admitted ‘significant human error’ after the audio revealed a shambolic process which failed to inform referee Simon Cooper to give the goal. Klopp remains livid …

Arne Slot: Liverpool reach agreement in principle with Feyenoord over Jurgen Klopp’s successor | UK News

[ad_1] Liverpool have reached an agreement in principle with Feyenoord for their head coach Arne Slot to become Jurgen Klopp’s successor. Slot featured on Liverpool’s list of candidates to replace the Liverpool boss from the start – and topped it when they finished due diligence on all the key criteria. After days of negotiations, Sky Sports News understands the two clubs have settled on a compensation package for the 45-year-old, who had two years left on his contract. The compensation package is said to be £7.7m, plus £1.7m in add-ons. Dutch newspaper AD reported that Feyenoord and Liverpool held positive discussions and only the final details need to be decided for Slot to join the English club.

[ad_1] Feyenoord boss Arne Slot is set to replace Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager. It comes after the clubs reached an agreement in principle over a compensation package for Slot to move to Merseyside from the Netherlands. The Dutch manager has two years left on his contract and Liverpool are thought to have agreed to pay Feyenoord £7.7m (€9m), plus £1.7m (€2m) in add-ons, Sky Sports News understands. The 45-year-old featured on Liverpool’s list of candidates to replace the Liverpool boss from the start – and topped it when they finished due diligence on all the key criteria.

Conor Bradley at heart of Jürgen Klopp’s last young Liverpool band | Liverpool

Conor Bradley at heart of Jürgen Klopp’s last young Liverpool band | Liverpool

[ad_1] If Roberto De Zerbi wants advice on how to impress the Anfield crowd he should seek Conor Bradley’s counsel. The full-back stepped in for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in late January and has not looked back since his first Premier League home game against Chelsea. Bradley scored once and assisted two in a 4-1 thrashing as he announced himself to Liverpool fans. De Zerbi brings his Brighton side to Anfield on Sunday with his name under consideration to replace the departing Jürgen Klopp. Another fine showing would make a timely statement, although the home fans will be hoping for a valiant defeat for the Italian. Bradley is the type of player who would thrive under De Zerbi’s all-action style. A year ago, the 20-year-old was scoring the winner against Exeter in League One while on loan at Bolton but has quickly become an invaluable cog for Liverpool, flying up and down the right flank. He already has a Carabao Cup-winner’s medal and is aiming to follow it up with the Premier League and Europa …

Jürgen Klopp hails Liverpool triumph as ‘most special, a memory for ever’ | Carabao Cup

Jürgen Klopp hails Liverpool triumph as ‘most special, a memory for ever’ | Carabao Cup

[ad_1] Jürgen Klopp hailed Liverpool’s Carabao Cup triumph as the most special trophy of his 23-year career in manage­ment and proof, to play on the old Alan Hansen quote, that you can win something with kids. Liverpool were depleted going into the final against Chelsea and had further injury torment when Ryan Gravenberch was taken off on a stretcher after 28 minutes after a poor tackle by Moisés Caicedo. Wataru Endo also left Wembley on crutches having sustained an ankle injury in a tackle with the same ­Chelsea midfielder. Klopp finished the final with the ­inexperienced youngsters Jayden Danns, James McConnell, Bobby Clark and Jarell Quansah on the pitch. But Liverpool finished in the ascendency with the captain Virgil van Dijk’s header sealing a record‑extending 10th League Cup triumph late in extra time. The Liverpool manager, who went up to lift the trophy with Van Dijk in his final season in charge, said: “What we see here today is exceptional. We might never see it again. These things don’t happen in football. I got told there’s an …

Liverpool’s fearless youngsters are Jürgen Klopp’s greatest legacy | Carabao Cup

Liverpool’s fearless youngsters are Jürgen Klopp’s greatest legacy | Carabao Cup

[ad_1] Nobody looks overawed. Nobody looks out of place. Nobody looks as if they have school in the morning or are wearing a shirt two sizes too big for them. Conor Bradley walks over towards the Liverpool fans, arms aloft, Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo either side of him, and this doesn’t feel like a dream or a Photoshop job or an artfully shot credit-card advert. James McConnell gets his turn with the trophy, and it doesn’t feel awkward or hefty in his hands. This is Liverpool, this is Wembley, and once you slip on the red shirt – no matter how high the number on the back of it – you know exactly what is expected of you, and what to expect in return. And so even amid their injuries, their relative inexperience, the pummelling of Caoimhín Kelleher’s goal, it felt like the most natural thing in the world that Liverpool should win this final. Chelsea had the better of the chances and the more expensively assembled side, and yet did we ever …
