Football News

Liverpool fans, hello and welcome to Friday.

To mark the end of the working week - unless you’re amongst those poor souls forced to work at the weekend as well - we’ve compiled the biggest stories from today purely for the purpose of informing.

Tackle the beast below if you want to be updated on all things Liverpool or you can watch the video above if you’d rather use your ears than your eyes. Enjoy.

Moreno's inner rage

The arrival of Jurgen Klopp seems to have rejuvenated many associated with Liverpool Football Club. None, apparently, more so than Alberto Moreno.

The Spanish full-back has admitted that former boss Brendan Rodgers left him with an inner rage, stating that everything is now completely different under Klopp.

Moreno also said he was concerned that Rodgers didn’t have much confidence in his abilities as a player and that he couldn’t see why he wasn’t given a chance.

Thankfully, he confirmed he wants to stay forever.

"It has been a 100 per cent change. Everything is totally different," the Spain international said, as per Sky Sports.

"I perhaps felt that Brendan didn't have quite so much confidence in me, certainly at the start of this season. He told me I was training hard but then I didn't feature for those first five or six games.

"Brendan said to me that it was still early in the season and that my opportunity would come, but after the first game against Stoke City, when we kept a clean sheet, he said he wasn't going to change anything defensively at that point.

"It never entered my head that I was going to leave, I want to stay forever, but I had this inner anger; a rage almost. I couldn't see why I wasn't getting a chance."

Gerrard 'hurting'

Next we move across the pond, where Steven Gerrard has conceded he’s hurting after LA Galaxy's failure to secure qualification for the MLS Cup playoffs.

A 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Seattle Sounders provided the final nail in the coffin for Gerrard and his teammates meaning the wait goes on with regards to him winning a career-first league title.

Klopp's medical endeavours

Lastly, no one can accuse Klopp of not taking a hands-on approach - especially not when they’ve read the latest rumour doing the rounds.

It’s said the German boss has been taking a keen interest in his club’s medical team as he seeks to find a way of coming out on top of the current injury crisis.

Not in his job detail, that’s for sure, but since more than one big player is on the sidelines it’s positively proactive.
