Liverpool are aiming to set up their first youth academy outside Europe, with the training centre to be run in Indonesia.

The club announced that they would be working with the British Chamber of Commerce to build the academy in Indonesia; a fitting destination as the football obsessed country has the fourth highest population in the world.


Liverpool legend Phil Neal attended the announcement, and will meet with Indonesian foreign minister Marty Natalegawa to discuss the Anfield club’s plans.

The news comes as Kenny Dalglish signed a three-year deal with Liverpool, and the club look to fight for a Europa League place as they take on Tottenham on Sunday.

Liverpool are already planning an Asian tour, which will include China, Malaysia and South Korea, and their presence in Indonesia is proof that the club highly rates Asian players as stars of the future.

On Saturday night, Liverpool sponsor Standard Chartered is holding a dinner in Indonesia for Neal and guests to celebrate their move into the country.
