Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool postpone Schalke friendly clash due to Norwich fixture
Liverpool confirmed that the pre-season friendly against Schalke has been postponed.
The Friday game seems to have come early for the Reds as the release adds that we need adequate preparation time. The release claimed that a new date for the game against Schalke would be shared once the two teams work together.
A big decision taken by the club
This certainly was a tough decision taken by the Reds, but it makes sense as we need to be well-prepared to face Daniel Farke’s men.
Norwich won the Championship last season and cannot be taken lightly. The additional time to prepare is important for the Reds given that several players will be returning from AFCON and Copa America duty.
The news might not be great for some fans making plans to watch the match against Schalke but the team cannot take a risk with injuries too, as the season would start just three days after this game.
