Liverpool are settling in to their training camp in Boston, enjoying the facilities at the iconic Harvard university – where they will be based for the next two weeks.
Chairman Tom Werner was present as Brendan Rodgers’ squad trained twice on Tuesday. Good news is that Lucas Leiva took a full part in both sessions.
Liverpool Echo reporter James Pearce watched the team train at Harvard on Tuesday and shared some of his thoughts via his twitter;
“Lots of 2 touch games on short/wide pitches.All about keeping possession while other team relentlessly press. I was sweating just watching!”
Meanwhile, it appears that the LFC squad will head to Fenway Park on Thursday for the Boston Red Sox’s match against White Sox – with Jamie Carragher throwing the ‘first-pitch’ – a tradition in baseball.
The squad features many youngsters, with attacker Nathan Eccleston – who looked set to leave the club earlier this summer – taking his chance by impressing in training. He scored a hat-trick, including an overhead kick.
The Reds head north to Toronto on Friday, where they will hold open training (to those with tickets) ahead of their game with MLS side Toronto FC on Saturday.
