    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Jürgen Klopp confirms Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain injury Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss the remainder of Liverpool’s pre-season programme after sustaining a knock to his knee during training. The midfielder picked up the injury during a challenge in Austria and has returned to Melwood to begin his rehabilitation with the club’s medical team. https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/406193-alex-oxlade-chamberlain-injury-austria-pre-season
  3. Premier League clubs join forces to call for an end to season by June 30 Several Premier League clubs are keen to propose a formula that would allow the season to be curtailed instead of allowing it to drag on Premier League clubs have joined forces together to call for the season to be finished by June 30. Mirror Sport understands that at least nine clubs have had serious discussions among themselves and will come together to present their case at the next league summit on Friday. They want the campaign curtailed if they cannot squeeze in the remaining games - most clubs have nine left while four have ten - rather than risk the “huge uncertainty and utter chaos” of allowing it to drag on for months beyond the summer. Their proposal is to find a formula to finish the season as they know voiding the campaign is off the table and this way would allow Liverpool to be crowned champions and still settle the Champions League and relegation places. The concerns surround the uncertainty of player contracts expiring on June 30 with many clubs also facing the end of big commercial sponsorship deals on that date. FIFA have been discussing ways round the huge contract issue for players who become free agents but clubs fear it would not stand up to a legal challenge with June 30 written in stone. They also believe that could seriously affect the whole integrity of the League if clubs suddenly lose key players with up to 80 top flight stars believed to be out of contract this summer. The clubs do not want to be seen as making demands but insist it is time for a serious debate to start to allow them to plan with some degree of certainty for next season and this way could allow football to kick off again in August or September. Premier League bosses have made it clear they want to play out the rest of the season and, while they have draft plans to restart with games behind closed doors in June, there is a fear it will just get pushed further back and add to the chaos. Clubs are currently in limbo, cannot make any plans as they could all stand to lose up to £750m worth of TV revenue and still have no idea when football will restart. They may get a further indication from the Government on Thursday as to how long the national lockdown will last but the reality is that even then they will have no guarantees about when players can even return to training let alone games. The uncertainty is causing the biggest concern as the clubs want to start planning for next season in terms of ticket sales, new contracts, sponsorship deals and transfers. They also think there may be little appetite for the last few games of a disrupted campaign with the nation locked in crisis. They believe a deal could be brokered with TV companies to offset the cost of the current contract by showing more games next season or reaching a compromise with key broadcasters Sky and BT Sport. It would allow them to make some concrete plans for the future rather than just play a waiting game and talk about unrealistic dates to return to action which could then be pushed further back. https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/premier-league-clubs-join-forces-21872081
  4. Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association. In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July. But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities. “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable." “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament. “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.” Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule. Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.” Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off. “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski. “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.” https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Timo Werner ‘torn between Liverpool, Manchester United and Man City’ as striker reveals summer transfer window dilemma Speaking ahead of Leipzig’s Champions League last-16 clash with Tottenham, the in-demand frontman said: “At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations. “The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City. They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches. “But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at. “The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. For me, Manchester United is one of these teams.” However, Werner also opened the door to remain at Leipzig and help his current club become ‘something great’. The Red Bull-backed outfit are only competing in their fourth ever season in the Bundesliga but have quickly established themselves as genuine challengers for the title. They currently sit third in the table, just five points adrift of leaders Bayern Munich, while victory over Spurs on Tuesday night will see them through to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in their history. He added: “At this point of my career I’m asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?”
