Ian Ayre

5th February 2016

Ian Ayre today spoke to the media to discuss the announcement of Liverpool FC’s new pricing and ticket structure earlier this week.

The club’s chief executive met with the press at Melwood to talk about the process in reaching the arrangements, which will come into effect for 2016-17, as well as some of the initiatives on offer.

Under the new pricing and ticket structure, 45 per cent of matchday tickets will see a price decrease from next season.

Around 200 tickets will be priced at £77 for Category A games (six per season, 1,200 across the campaign, occupying 0.4 per cent of Anfield’s capacity on matchdays).

In addition, there will be the introduction of £9 tickets, of which there’ll be around 500 per Category C fixture, with over 1,500 being made available in total.

Klopp on Daniel Sturridge, Sunderland and improvement

Jurgen Klopp

5th February 2016

Jürgen Klopp previewed Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash against Sunderland with a press conference at Melwood on Friday afternoon, in which he answered questions about Daniel Sturridge, the Black Cats and improving the Reds’ attacking play. Here’s what he had to say…

On Daniel Sturridge…

If somebody wants to ask me something they have heard about Daniel Sturridge then you can ask me, but not suggestions – I am not interested in this. Absolutely nothing. Daniel is back in training, and that’s great, since two days [ago]. Everything looks good in this moment. Now it is normal football training, which is really good for us and for him. Obviously there were a few problems in the past with injuries, not only since I’ve been here, so that’s a part of the truth. But now, this is [the] past and it would be cool if we could leave it there and can start from now on. I don’t know exactly when it was, but what I said Daniel needs – like each player needs – is consistent training – training, training, training. That’s normal to be fit for Premier League football, that’s all. We tried everything we could to bring [him] into the shape and now we are in the moment where we hopefully can get the benefit of this work, and that’s all. It’s not a story. How can it be a story? You cannot create stories and then ask me. If somebody wants to say something then please write your name under it and don’t suggest something – that’s not too cool. It’s no story, so it’s absolutely not frustrating. It’s not interesting.

On Sunderland…

They have a few changes in the squad, they made a few transfers – and good transfers, to be honest. It will be a different team. They played absolutely OK against Manchester City, that’s not too easy and everybody knows that in the league. They took a good portion of confidence out of this game, so that’s what we will feel I think. But we want – and have – to do better than we did [at] Leicester because we were absolutely not satisfied with our performance. You have to strike back and that’s what we have to do – it’s not too important who is the opponent. We are at home and we need these points, that’s what everybody has to know. Sunderland are maybe better or different than before, but we have to be too.

Jürgen: Joe is getting very close to a starting spot

Joe Allen

5th February 2016

An impressive run of form has Joe Allen knocking on the door for a place in Liverpool’s Barclays Premier League line-up ahead of Saturday’s clash with Sunderland.

The Welsh midfielder made a series of key contributions during January, scoring a late equaliser against Arsenal, finding the target in the FA Cup win over Exeter City and keeping his nerve during the Capital One Cup shootout with Stoke City.

But Allen has only started once in the league so far this season, though Jürgen Klopp admitted at his pre-match press conference that the No.24 is providing food for thought.

Boss explains Flanagan Europa League decision

Jon Flanagan

5th February 2016

Jürgen Klopp has explained the rationale behind the decision not to register Jon Flanagan for the knock-out phase of the Europa League.

The 23-year-old has recently returned to first-team action with appearances against Exeter City and Stoke City after a knee injury had kept him on the sidelines since May 2014.

However, Klopp explained why Flanagan hasn’t been included in the Reds’ European squad, with a decision taken to err on the side of caution with the full-back’s fitness following such a lengthy spell out.

He told journalists at Melwood on Friday: “With Jon, it was 18 months [out injured]? So the best news is that Jon is involved, back in the race and back on the pitch. That’s really good.
