Arsenal target backed to make shock Anfield switch

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 17/01/2018 - 12:11

Bordeaux boss Jocelyn Gourvennec has hinted Liverpool could hijack Arsenal’s move for Malcom.

Arsenal are likely to be busy in the last two weeks of the January transfer window with Alexis Sanchez set to leave for Manchester United.

They are expected to bring in Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal with United while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly handed in a transfer request at Borussia Dortmund.

And one other player linked with a move to the Emirates has been 20-year-old Malcom from Bordeaux.

Arsenal have already held talks with Malcom’s representatives but it seems they aren’t the only team from the Premier League interested in his signature.

“I can’t deny that he’s being followed by a lot of people,” Gourvennec said.

“With Malcom, I go from day-to-day. He’s committed. He’s a bit like he was in the summer - I wouldn’t say he has been disturbed by it, that’s a bit strong, he’s not disturbed, but he is asking questions.

“He’s asking himself what’s the best thing for him, for his future. That’s logical.

"If he’s asking questions and he still manages to make assists or score goals, it’ll be fine.

“If Liverpool want you to work for them tomorrow, you’d go.

“I’m a coach, I’d like to be able to count on Malcom, Malcom has to help us.

“There is one person who decides in this, that’s the majority shareholder.

"He talked about this at the weekend, but football remains football.”

Liverpool eye Roma stopper

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 17/01/2018 - 12:05

With attention turning from a replacement for Philippe Coutinho to a new goalkeeper, Liverpool's potential plans may have already been scuppered by French giants Paris St-Germain.

The Reds are likely to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer.

Alisson and Jan Oblak have been two possible candidates linked with a move recently, and it's the Roma goalkeeper who is supposedly attracting the attention of PSG.

According to reports in Italy, the Ligue 1 leaders want to take the Brazilian stopper to Paris, having moved on from their interest in AC Milan wonderkid Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Calciomercato say PSG have now shifted their attentions to Alisson, in what could be a blow for Jurgen Klopp.

Earlier this month, Alisson admitted he would be open to moving on from the Italian capital in the summer.

“It's always nice to know that great teams are looking for you,” he said. “But I want to do well in Rome, so we'll talk about it in June. But for now, I'm in Rome.”

Roberto Firmino: Liverpool's No.9

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 17/01/2018 - 11:59

As examples of self-evaluation go, Roberto Firmino’s upon signing for Liverpool has proven to be unerringly accurate.

“I’m a player who works hard and who’s constantly looking to support my teammates on the pitch,” the Brazilian pledged, during his first interview as a Red following his transfer from Hoffenheim in June 2015.

“I’m a player with an attitude and who knows how to play a tactical role with the team.”

Two-and-a-half years on, few observers would disagree. Certainly not his manager, anyway.

“What a player! What can I say? If he loses the ball, he fights for it back. If he loses it again, he fights for it,” Jürgen Klopp told this website earlier in the season.

“He looks like the engine of the team. I really like how the crowd appreciate it. It’s really nice to see and he deserves it. He works so hard.”

But while the manner in which Firmino goes about his business on the pitch hasn’t changed since he swapped south-west Germany for north-west England, the starting position from which he does so most definitely has.

Firmino is no longer an attacking midfielder, no longer Liverpool’s No.11.

Firmino is now a striker. Both literally and figuratively, he is now Liverpool’s No.9.

After sitting down with Liverpoolfc.com at Melwood recently to discuss this evolution, the 26-year-old explains: “Since Jürgen Klopp became our manager, this has been my new position.

“I wasn’t a striker before but as I’ve been adapting into this position I’ve liked it more and more. I feel really comfortable and really adapted to it. I’d like to continue playing there for the rest of my career.”

The increased level of familiarity with his role Firmino references can be measured quantitatively, too.

His first season at Anfield yielded 11 goals in 49 appearances. In 2016-17, he scored 12 times in 41 games. 

But, following last Sunday’s deft chip against Manchester City, Firmino has already netted 17 goals in only 31 matches during the current campaign, including seven in eight Champions League outings.

Firmino has a penchant for following Liverpool goals with unusual modes of celebration. In recent weeks, dance moves inspired by his legendary compatriot Ronaldinho have been supplemented by a kung-fu kick.

Most recently, these acrobatics could be witnessed in the aftermath of Mohamed Salah’s long-range strike that put the Reds 4-1 up versus City.

A broad grin breaks out across Firmino’s face as this particular subject is raised.

“Well, when I was a kid, I used to do a goal celebration that was a back-flip,” he reveals.

“I did it a lot when I was younger. It’s something I wanted to do [again], but maybe it’s best not to try! I did it up to four years ago, but not anymore!”

Goals, though, are not the only currency Firmino values highly.

“I’m always very happy to score and to give assists, give passes - that’s also hugely important,” he says.

“I work hard and I want to help my teammates. It’s not always the goal itself, though the goal is the fruit of the work we’ve done which is why of course when I score, it’s always good.”

Watch Bobby's stunning dink v City

While scoring and creating represent two primary aims for any forward, there is also another facet of Firmino’s game that so endears him to Liverpool fans.

The sight of the No.9 tracking back and hustling opponents out of possession is a regular occurrence at Anfield, as well as grounds across the country and beyond.

As Klopp acknowledged, appreciative applause and a chorus of ‘Bobby Firmino!’ from the Reds supporters in attendance generally follows.

The man himself credits his readiness to embrace the less glamorous side of the game to a combination of instinct and the way leaving home to join Hoffenheim at the age of 18 moulded him, both personally and professionally.

“It’s natural, of course - it comes from the cradle almost. I think though that the four years I spent in Germany changed my mentality a great deal. It made me become a lot harder,” Firmino notes.

The manner in which the Brazilian fulfils such tasks - with indefatigable diligence - is testament to his physical fitness.

Firmino's 2017-18 Premier League stats

Of Liverpool’s 33 matches across all competitions so far this season, Firmino started 28 - an impressive ratio for an elite club’s frontline striker.

He smiles and raps the table with his knuckles to gesture ‘touch wood’ when it’s put to him that he rarely seems pick up injuries. But is his robustness down to nature or nurture? 

“I prepare very intensively for all games, physically and mentally,” Firmino asserts.

“I’m always eating the right food, I make sure I eat well, and I believe in God so I pray before all games that I’ll be alright. So I prepare on all levels for games.”

The esteem in which Firmino is held by Liverpool supporters is made clear every time the Reds play, but his popularity among the Hoffenheim faithful has not waned, either.

Last August, when Klopp’s side visited the Rhein-Neckar-Arena for the first leg of their Champions League play-off tie, the home fans chanted Firmino’s name before kick-off and then afforded him a standing ovation when he was substituted late on.

“It’s due to me as a person, I think, my charisma,” Firmino replies, when asked why he believes he is regarded so highly by followers of his clubs past and present.

“I always treat people well. I always stop, it’s never a problem when people want to speak with me, that’s OK with me - I’m never rude to anyone. 

“And then on the field I give absolutely everything, I play with all of my heart and that’s why I think it is.”

Firmino has spoken previously about the positive influence Klopp has had on his development since the boss’ arrival at Anfield in October 2015.

His manager, as detailed in the opening stages of this interview, admires his No.9 greatly and Firmino feels their similar understanding of football is a consequence of his own spell in the Bundesliga.

“When I was 18 and I was in Brazil, the offer came up to go to Germany and I didn’t think twice. It was a big adaptation, a new country, food, culture, but I didn’t go about it with any airs and graces and therefore I adapted,” he recalls.

“For me, it’s certainly helped and the German mentality that I have from my time there, that’s been very important [for his relationship with Klopp]. I’ve learned a huge amount with the manager, it’s a real honour to be with him.

“We have a good relationship, it’s excellent, but he’s a partner not just to me. He’s got a good relationship with all of the players, all of us.”

What does he make of Klopp referring to him as the ‘engine’ of his side?

“I like it. I like to work hard,” Firmino states.

“I like to drop back and help defend because that then turns into attack, turns into goals, so I don’t mind being called the ‘engine’ of the team.”

Just as Firmino didn’t hesitate when the chance to join Hoffenheim arose, nor was the opportunity to move to Liverpool going to pass him by.

“It was over the years that I was seeing the Champions League, the Premier League, I watch all football so it was the same thing - when the proposal came up to join Liverpool, I didn’t think twice,” he says. 

And, as any of Firmino’s 2.8 million Instagram followers would surely attest, the man from the tropical climes of Maceio and his family are well settled into life in a city located nearly 5,000 miles from home.

“I’m always a happy person, I’m always smiling,” Firmino says, with a facial expression to match his words.

“I’m at peace [and] I think it’s important that you are, because if you’re happy at home with your family it means that you go onto the pitch also happy.”

Something that makes Firmino unhappy, though, is the spurning of goalscoring opportunities. 

However, such short-term pain only serves to feed an insatiable hunger for long-term improvement.

“When I miss a chance or I misplace a pass, I always feel that I could’ve done better,” he admits.

“But I work on the basis that I’m never satisfied; I always want to do better and the feeling that I’m never satisfied is my way of motivating myself to be the best I can be.

“It’s never perfect. I always want to work hard and prepare the best for each game. And each goal that comes, that’s a consequence of the preparation we put in to it.”

Local supporters' forum: Empty Anfield seats and LFC's community work

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 16/01/2018 - 21:00

Liverpool have outlined their work in the local community and underlined their desire to eradicate empty seats at Anfield during the first meeting of the local supporters' forum which took place ahead of the Manchester City game on Sunday.

Attended by nine forum members and five representatives from the club, including chief executive Peter Moore, the meeting focused on two key issues – the ability of local supporters to attend home games at Anfield and the work that Liverpool does in the area.

Although the intention is for discussions about ticket availability and ticket pricing to take place in the relevant forums, it was deemed appropriate that given the crossover on those issues with those affecting local supporters that the matter should be given further consideration at this forum.

One of the prime concerns of the forum members was the number of seats which are not used on a matchday, a situation which Phil Dutton, Liverpool’s head of ticketing and hospitality, admitted is one that the club is determined to tackle in the coming months in an attempt to bring about a drastic reduction in the number of unused tickets.

“Our fill rate (ie the number of seats that are used on a matchday) is around 94 per cent but our sales rate (ie the number of seats sold) is around 99.6 per cent with the 0.4 per cent being unsold visitor tickets or changes to segregation etc. Every available home seat is sold,” Phil Dutton said. “This is an obvious problem and, like everyone else, I get incredibly frustrated when I see seats left empty at Anfield because I know there are so many people who would readily fill them.

“We need to improve the platform for supporters to use in relation to this matter but we also need people to talk to us. If someone knows in advance of a game that they aren’t going to make it then if they let us know we can do something about it. If they don’t tell us then the problem doesn’t go away because we can’t give a supporter’s seat to someone else if they’re not in it by 10 past three because there’s a risk that the original ticket holder could turn up at quarter past three.”

Estimating that on average over 2,000 seats can be unused at some home games, Phil Dutton then fielded a series of suggestions from forum members about ways of dealing with the problem. Among them were ideas that local children could turn up at Anfield on a matchday and taken to the seats that are unfilled or that local schools could be placed on a rota that would allow their pupils to fill empty seats.

On both counts, Phil Dutton said that while the ideas are well meaning they are not practical. In terms of children, he said it would be neither pragmatic nor safe to have hundreds of children waiting outside a stadium in the hope that they might get a ticket at an unspecified time. He also said that because the problem involves individual seats being left empty, it would not be suitable for schools who require tickets in groups to allow teachers and pupils to attend together.

Ian Byrne, the Spirit Of Shankly (SOS) delegate, suggested that the club should become more flexible in its approach to ticketing and should be willing to offer fan groups such as SOS and Spion Kop 1906 the opportunity to identify supporters who could take advantage of short notice. Phil Dutton said that while that is an option we would be willing to look at, he would be concern that the risks associated with ticketing would be passed on to those groups and he was not convinced that would be fair on them or the club. 

“We need to work with supporters but the ultimate responsibility for the use of any spare tickets needs to sit with the club,” Phil Dutton said. “Next season we want the fill rate to be 99.9 per cent. But for that to happen we need supporters to talk to us and then we need to find a way to use any tickets that are going spare. This place (Anfield) should be full for every single game.”

Challenged on the local element by forum member Ste Martin who asked whether the club takes it for granted that it could sell out every home game, Phil Dutton insisted that is not the case. “The reality is that we could put tickets on sale globally and they would sell out,” he said. “That is how wide demand is but we cannot lose sight of local fans. This club needs its local core element and I’m not just saying that because I am a local fan.

“In terms of numbers, 84 per cent of our season ticket holders are from the North West and 46 per cent of our members are from the same region and we need to look at what we can do to make that latter figure higher because, as I’ve said, local supporters are absolutely vital to everything we do as a club.”

Among the ideas that Phil Dutton said are currently being considered in order to make ticketing more effective, he indicated that a season ticket amnesty is one option.

On the possibility of an amnesty, Ste Martin said his concern with that approach would be that it could lead to supporters losing season tickets that have been passed on to them by a family member. Phil Dutton said that should the club choose to go down that route, such supporters would not be at risk of losing their season tickets with the prime motivation of such an approach being to ascertain exactly who is in possession of the season ticket and who attends Anfield on matchdays, the latter being a particular concern for health and safety reasons.

Ian Byrne urged the club to do everything in its power to free up tickets for supporters, particularly local youngsters, stressing “Atmosphere is one of our greatest weapons and we need to do everything we can to make the most of it. That’s something that I’m sure everyone would agree is in the club’s best interests.”

A presentation followed from LFC Foundation marketing manager Janine Ross and Red Neighbours manager Forbes Duff in which Liverpool’s work in the community was summarised. Focusing on the LFC Foundation, Janine Ross said the club’s official charity had been relaunched in February 2017 as research indicated fans were unclear about what the Foundation stood for and what its aims and objectives were.

“In simple terms, our primary aim is to help children and young people,” Janine Ross said. “Last season we worked with 11,500 children and young people and we provided 125,000 places on various programmes including Kicks, Football Plus, Respect 4 All and Primary Stars. We also ran free holiday camps in Anfield which were supported by the James Milner Foundation.

“In March this year, we will be starting an open spaces sports programme in local parks which will also be free of charge and we are also working on a new project with Merseyside Police which will help children who are at risk of being dragged into gang culture.

“We target areas of high deprivation across Liverpool City Region and one of the initiatives that we are most excited is the new IntoUniversity North Liverpool programme which will see us support children in North Liverpool and surrounding areas who do not have the support needed to get into higher education.”

Explaining the philosophy behind Red Neighbours, Forbes Duff said the initiative focuses on the L4, L5 and L6 postcodes with the aim of supporting residents who live in the vicinity of Anfield. “We support the elderly community, we support food banks, we encourage people to be more physically active and we look to create memorable experiences for children,” he said. “Those are our four key areas and the idea is that we are a good neighbour to those around us.”

Praising the work of Red Neighbours, Ian Byrne said: “It is a delight working with Forbes. Previously, the club had a terrible reputation in the area but through Forbes and Red Neighbours we can see that they are being a lot more constructive in the local community. It is about working positively and when that happens I will happily shout it from the rooftops as was the case after we got magnificent support for the food banks from Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson.

“If you were to ask me what my gripes are I’d say that Red Neighbours is under-staffed and I would also like to see the pilot scheme which allowed local kids to come to Anfield to watch away games happen more often. That was a brilliant idea and it worked really well but since then the screenings have been sold to supporters and I don’t think that’s the best way forward.”

Forum member Peter Carney then urged the club to do more to support local charities rather than just focusing on their own. “These are small charities which just want a small token from the club,” he said. “They’re not asking for a great deal.” Tony Barrett informed Peter that a high-level meeting regarding that issue had taken place three days earlier and it was hoped that progress would be made imminently.

“The club should also look into the fans’ goodwill,” said forum member Gareth Roberts. “We would all like Liverpool Football Club to have a good name and a good reputation but at times it feels like it goes its own way without consulting us or asking if we would like to get involved and support the work you are doing. And it would be good if we heard more about the kind of work that has been discussed today. We don’t want the club to go too far on the PR front because that would be cynical but there is a balance to be struck.”

“Once again, this was another excellent forum,” Tony Barrett, Liverpool’s head of club and supporter liaison, said. “The input from all of the forum members was constructive and challenging and a number of ideas have been put forward which the club will now consider. Most importantly, all involved engaged with one another even on difficult issues that were never going to be straightforward and found ways of making progress.”

Liverpool placed in the frame for Bordeaux star Malcom

HEAD NEWS - Tue, 16/01/2018 - 19:15

Liverpool have been put into the frame for the signature of Brazilian star Malcom – by his club manager at Bordeaux.

The 20-year-old has been a standout star in Ligue 1 this campaign, scoring seven goals and registering five assists in 19 appearances.

Arsenal are interested in the winger as they prepare to replace Alexis Sanchez, who is set to depart the Emirates this summer.

But with interest in both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Malcom may be forced to wait for his move to the Premier League.

Bordeaux boss Jocelyn Gourvennec, however, has bizarrely referenced Liverpool as a potential destination.

“I can’t deny that he’s being followed by a lot of people,” Gourvennec reportedly said. “With Malcom, I go from day-to-day.

“He’s committed. He’s a bit like he was in the summer - I wouldn’t say he has been disturbed by it, that’s a bit strong, he’s not disturbed, but he is asking questions.

“He’s asking himself what’s the best thing for him, for his future. That’s logical. If he’s asking questions and he still manages to make assists or score goals, it’ll be fine.

“If Liverpool want you to work for them tomorrow, you’d go.

“There is one person who decides in this, that’s the majority shareholder. He talked about this at the weekend, but football remains football.”

Liverpool are not expected to enter the transfer market this January after their attempts to speed up Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leizpig were denied by the Bundesliga club.

Thomas Lemar has been considered but his signature would likely come in the summer, although Monaco's asking price remains high.
