Liverpool FC begin their pre-season training this week, with those players who haven’t been involved in internationals this summer starting back at Melwood on Tuesday.
They’ll be joined by four new signings; Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto and Simon Mignolet.
The Reds kick-off their pre-season matches against Preston in just under two weeks time, before heading to Asia and Australia a week later. They then play friendlies closer to home in Norway and Ireland, with Steven Gerrard’s testimonial at the start of August.
New signing Luis Alberto tweeted his view as he arrived in the city on Sunday afternoon.
