Klopp’s stand-in revealed as 2 targets emerge – Liverpool FC Roundup

Despite the uncertainty, Liverpool are pushing ahead with preparations for their FA Cup clash with Shrewsbury, which has dominated the news at Anfield on Friday.


Liverpool are back in action

Though a high volume of COVID-19 cases prompted the Reds to postpone their League Cup semi-final clash with Arsenal on Thursday night, it was back to work at Kirkby the following day.

Liverpool reopened their doors at the AXA Training Centre at 11am, with Jurgen Klopp‘s assistant, Peter Krawietz, the man to lead the session.

Krawietz will take press conference duties on Saturday afternoon, and if Klopp cannot attend on Sunday, he will also serve as manager against Shrewsbury.

We’ve taken a look at the 50-year-old who Klopp calls ‘The Eye’ here.
