Pre-season footage galore!

Liverpool have reached day three of their Baden-Wurttemberg camp and spirits appear to be high throughout the squad as they prepare for a first ball to be kicked on Wednesday night.

The latest training photos have shown the Reds cycling through the town of Donaueschingen and include another appearance from new sporting director Jorg Schmadtke.

Captain Jordan Henderson was also among the group despite having agreed terms to join Steven Gerrard‘s Al-Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League, your guess is as good as ours regarding how that situation is all going to play out.
