‘Really good’ ex-Newcastle United midfielder trains with Liverpool as Reds could be set for boost.



A former Newcastle United midfielder who was “really good” trains with Liverpool as the Reds may be poised for a boost.On Friday afternoon, Liverpool were subjected to rigorous conditioning in preparation for their Premier League match against Newcastle United.

Two days were granted to the squad by Jurgen Klopp following their 2-0 victory over Burnley on Boxing Day. And the Reds returned to the AXA Training Centre in first place of the Premier League standings, following Arsenal’s 2-0 loss at home to West Ham United.Liverpool now strives to have the ideal start to 2024 on New Year’s Day, when they host Newcastle to Anfield. Although the Magpies have encountered recent difficulties, with a single victory in their last seven games, they demonstrated their quality by eliminating the Reds from Champions League qualification last season.Klopp will be anticipating the return of Alexis Mac Allister from injury. Since early in the month, the Argentine international has been sidelined for the past six matches due to a knee injury he sustained in a 2-0 victory at Sheffield United. Mac Allister resumed training, an encouraging development that could potentially qualify him for the bench contingent upon the medical staff’s approval.During his pre-match press conference, Klopp stated, “We will see what Macca can do today – whether or not he can participate in team training.”


“The decision remains unresolved at this early stage, and the Doc is not present; he may be present, but I have yet to observe him.” Consequently, we shall observe.”In addition, a number of young people, including Bobby Clark, were invited to the session to mingle with Mac Allister, Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk, and company. The 18-year-old reportedly paid £1.5 million to join Liverpool from Newcastle in the summer of 2021.


Clark is held in the highest regard by Klopp and his coaching staff. In August 2022, the England minor international made his Premier League debut off the bench against Bournemouth in a 9-0 rout. He then made his Premier League debut in a Carabao Cup triumph over Derby County.Following a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa the previous season, Jurgen Klopp stated, “We introduced Ben Doak, and the first situation demonstrated how ‘cheeky’ he is; we have others in the background.” “Bobby Clark, an additional well-known name in England, and the youngster is an exceptionally talented player, so the future looks promising.”


Tom Hill, Conor Bradley, Luke Chambers, Calum Scanlon, and James McConnell. Lewis Koumas and Kaide Gordon were two of the other burgeoning talents who received training.
