COVID-19: Liverpool reopen training centre after shutdown

Liverpool announced Friday they had reopened their first-team training centre after a 48-hour closure following a “significant” coronavirus outbreak among players and staff.

Assistant manager Peter Krawietz is preparing the side for Sunday’s FA Cup third-round tie at home to third-tier Shrewsbury.

As the shutdown affected only the first-team area of the complex, Liverpool’s youth teams have been able to continue training, with a number of the under-23s expected to feature against the League One side.

Manager Jurgen Klopp and players Alisson Becker, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino will have ended their Covid-19 isolation periods by the weekend, although it has yet to be confirmed whether any will be present at Anfield for the match.

Thursday’s League Cup semi-final first leg at Arsenal was postponed after Covid infections left Liverpool short of players.
