Welcome to our weekly round-up of news and events on the site, matters relating to LFC and the world of football generally.

Liverpool Football Club News:

Monday 23rd:

Jordan Henderson is determined to ‘get back to my best’ after what the Liverpool captain admits was the hardest season of his career to date. (

The skipper told the Liverpool Echo:

“The team at Liverpool have progressed very well this season. But for me personally, it’s been the hardest season of my career so far.

“But you have to go through them at times. You’re going to have injuries. Before that, I was quite lucky in that I didn’t really have any bad ones, and this season they’ve all come at once.

“But hopefully I’ll be stronger for it. I’ve come through it, and hopefully I can stay injury-free and get back to my best.

“It’s been a difficult season, but hopefully – touch wood – I can concentrate on playing football now, stay injury-free and just get back to playing the way I know I can.”

The credentials of Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool’s run to the Europa League final will help the club build on its base this summer, according to Dietmar Hamann. (

“This summer Jürgen Klopp will be working hard to make sure he adds to his squad,” explains former midfielder Hamann in the latest official Liverpool FC magazine.

“The run in the Europa League and the nature of the victories, with some fabulous nights at home, will have made many players take notice.

“They’ll realise that Liverpool seem to be improving and being part of that is an attractive proposition. The same applies to Klopp: players will want to work under him because he is such an impressive manager.”
