Tierney reunion, Caicedo ‘surprise’ & more Saudi interest – Latest LFC News

Tuesday’s news overview features an interesting selection of Bournemouth officials and links to our goalkeeper that we’d sooner ignore!


Tierney appointed Bournemouth VAR

Paul Tierney has been appointed VAR for the Reds’ first home match of the season against Bournemouth this weekend.

The official will be involved in a Liverpool game for the first time since his touchline clash with Jurgen Klopp in April.

Klopp received a two-match ban for asking “what this man has against us” following a number of contentious decisions during the dramatic 4-3 win over Tottenham.

Tierney (one of many Premier League referees seemingly from Greater Manchester) will be assisted by Constantine Hatzidakis, the linesman who elbowed Andy Robertson during last season’s 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal.

Bournemouth‘s visit will be refereed by Thomas Bramall, a man who has never taken charge of a Liverpool game having only been promoted to the top flight last season.

Nothing to worry about, we’re sure!
