Salah future, Szoboszlai update & transfer imminent – Latest LFC News

With the players beginning their winter break, plenty of Liverpool news has been breaking, including an update on Mo Salah‘s future from a reliable journalist.


Winter break plans

“My English is not good enough to put that in words,” Jurgen Klopp joked after being asked to describe how much he was looking forward to the winter break.

With 10 days until Liverpool play Bournemouth, the squad can now enjoy their mini winter break, that has already been eaten into by the League Cup semi-final first leg.

The players and staff will likely be jetting off around the world for short holidays to refresh ahead of a potentially seismic second half of the season.

Injured players such as Trent Alexander-Arnold, though, are expected to remain on Merseyside to continue their recovery in the hope of returning by the end of January.

Meanwhile, Andy Robertson should be off to Dubai for the next phase of his rehabilitation. Get those details here.

Klopp wrote in his pre-Fulham programme notes: “I will repeat that the potential benefits to the players are clear so now we have to make the most of it.”

Don’t get between Jurgen and his holidays!

Video of the day

Liverpool could do with some new songs for their players, especially if they are to go on to win silverware this season. We think this Luis Diaz one could be a belter.

There are no domestic games of note on UK television this Thursday night, so it could be an evening for a mini winter break, like Liverpool’s players.
