Liverpool will tour Asia this summer as part of their preparations ahead of next season.

The Reds will play games in China, Malaysia and Korea following a hugely successful tour of Thailand and Singapore in 2009.

Kenny Dalglish's side will travel to the cities of Guangzhou, Kuala Lumpur and then Seoul for the final fixture of their three-match tour in July.

Captain Steven Gerrard said: "Whenever we go to Asia, the fans are always amazing.


"The supporters over there are fanatical about Liverpool and it's great that we can give so many of them a chance to come and watch the team play."

The club's Managing Director Ian Ayre said: "The last tour in 2009 was a real success and we're delighted that we are returning this summer. Nothing beats watching the team live and by visiting China, Malaysia and Korea, we are allowing fans from all three countries to experience just that."

Details of the match and the ticketing options will be released soon.
