14 Reds return, pre-season antics & van de Ven out of running – Latest LFC News

It was a busy day for Liverpool with the return of 14 senior players and there were plenty of laughs and hugs to go around – plus a defensive target ruled out.


We love pre-season content

It was a busy day at the AXA as 14 senior players returned from their holidays, and it made for quite the footage as they reunited!

There were plenty of hugs and handshakes, and if you had any doubt that Andy Robertson was one of the loudest in the dressing room they will quickly vanish – his voice was everywhere!

“Wooow, what a body. It’s all that boxing, innit?” is what greeted Jordan Henderson when he attracted a crowd with his physique, while Salah and Mac Allister both got a warm welcome from the Scot.

Makes you wonder what he had to say about Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s new hairstyle! (You can see his new look here)

Players who returned on Tuesday: Alisson, Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Tsimikas, Konate, Van Dijk, Henderson, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Diaz, Gakpo, Jota, Salah

It was the first day for Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, and they had plenty of new faces to greet – and Klopp hugs – can’t wait to see them in action soon!
