Liverpool will kick off their 2012/13 season with a trip to West Bromwich Albion now managed by former Reds assistant manager Steve Clarke.

New manager Brendan Rodgers’s opening game at Anfield will come a week later when current Champions Manchester City will visit Merseyside. The two local derbies against Everton will be on October 27th and 4th May, with the first fixture being held at Goodison Park.

Liverpool will welcome Sir Alex Ferguson and his Manchester United team to Anfield on the 22nd September before making the trip to Old Trafford on the 12th January.

Rodgers will take his current Liverpool side to his former employees, Swansea City on the 24th November while he will welcome them to Anfield on the 23rd February.

Christmas time is always a busy period of the season and this year Liverpool can look forward to a visit to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke on Boxing Day before starting the New Year with a home clash against Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland.

Liverpool will close the season with a home fixture against QPR where they will hope to be ending a successful first season under the new management of Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool-linked 22-year-old’s current club open to listening to offers for the youngster



Liverpool FC transfer news: Liverpool interested in Dutch sensation Donny van de Beek

The Liverpool Echo (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Donny van de Beek is being seen as an option for Juventus should they fail to sign either Paul Pogba or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The report claims that Juventus are looking for another quality midfielder despite Aaron Ramsey joining the Italian champions on a free.

Van de Beek had an excellent season for Ajax scoring 16 goals in all competitions and providing 12 assists too.

The 22-year-old also played for the national side in their recent 3-1 win over England as they reached the final of the Nations League.

The report claims that Liverpool are interested in the 22-year-old midfield with Tottenham also keeping tabs on Van de Beek.

Ajax are willing to listen to offers for one of their star players, and the report claims that Inter Milan have also been linked with the 22-year-old.

Ajax’s stars shine this season

Van de Beek isn’t the only Ajax player that has done well this season with David Neres, Hakim Ziyech, Dusan Tadic and Matthijs de Ligt all starring.

The Dutch giants reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and were seconds away from facing us in the final.

Ajax could make a decent sum by selling some of their stars, and Van de Beek could be a fantastic signing for Liverpool, even though we have quality midfielders.

The 22-year-old can play in an attacking role or in a deeper position and will only improve further under the right manager.

European giants snubbed by Jurgen Klopp after making an attempt to lure him away from Liverpool



Liverpool FC transfer news: Italian journalist claims Klopp isn’t interested in Juventus role

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri has claimed that Juventus made a move for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp but there was no progress in the negotiations (h/t Daily Mail).

The Daily Mail reports that the Italian giants are looking at a new manager after they confirmed that Max Allegri will be leaving the Serie A giants after five years at the helm.

The Italian failed to win the Champions League despite leading Juve to two finals and saw his side get knocked out by Ajax this season.

Klopp remaining at Liverpool

The German is one of the best managers in the world and has taken the Reds to a second successive Champions League final.

Klopp has built a wonderful team from the ashes of what Brendan Rodgers left and we only lost out on the Premier League title by one point.

The report claims that Klopp has a contract with the Reds till 2022 and will look to win his first piece of silverware at Liverpool.

Liverpool face Tottenham in the final of the Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano and should start as favourites for the tie.

Klopp has taken the team from strength to strength since replacing Rodgers, and we seem set for a bright future under the German.

Former Premier League manager claims Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Barcelona was made possible by this one man



Latest Liverpool news: Jose Mourinho hails Jurgen Klopp’s efforts at Liverpool after stunning 4-0 win over Barcelona

Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League.

The Reds came into the tie after losing 3-0 in the first leg of the semi-final and without Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum scored braces to demolish Barcelona but every player was almost perfect on the pitch.

Jose Mourinho spoke on beIN Sports and claimed that Anfield was one of the places where impossible events could take place (h/t Metro):

“I didn’t expect it, I said impossible is nothing, I said if it’s possible, Anfield is one of the places to make the impossible be possible.”

The Portuguese also hailed Klopp’s role in the team and claimed the win was mostly down to him.

“But I have to say that for me, this has one name – Jurgen.

“I think this is not about tactics, this is not about philosophy, this is about heart and soul, and a fantastic empathy he created with this group of players.”

Klopp deserves the Champions League

Mourinho added that we could have ended the season without a trophy but now are just one game away from lifting the Champions League.

Klopp has lost three European finals, two of them with Liverpool, but Mourinho wanted the German to lift the Champions League.

“Everything I think today is about Jurgen’s mentality.

“I just hope that Jurgen wins the Champions League finally.

“Because he lost already two Champions League finals and also a Europa League final.

“I think he deserves to make it happen. Because the work is fantastic.”

The Portuguese manager further credited Klopp for not moaning about the extra games in the season.

The Reds did an incredible job on Barcelona and we have the chance to fix our mistakes from the Champions League final from last season.

Liverpool have the chance of winning the Premier League but need some help from Brighton at the weekend.
