Anfield Road End update & exit talks for Colombian – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool provided another big Anfield Road End redevelopment update on Friday, while a transfer story on a forgotten Colombian defender has emerged in Spain.


Another big Anfield Road End update

With Liverpool not set to play at Anfield again until July 31, when Strasbourg arrive for a pre-season friendly, contractors have been busy at work on the Anfield Road End redevelopment.

This weekend will bring another big milestone for the £80 million expansion as the roof truss will be lifted into place to give the new stand its structure.

Work on the lift, which has seen two 600-tonne cranes arrive outside Anfield, is expected to begin at 8am on Sunday, taking around 12 hours to complete.

It is, obviously, a major task to undergo and when finished will give a better idea of how the finished product will look in 2023.

The Anfield Road End expansion will add around 7,000 extra seats with a new upper tier, with the stand due to hold 15,967 fans, increasing the stadium’s overall capacity to 61,015.
