Liverpool confirm intention to bring in goalkeeper Andy Lonergan


"At the moment when Caoimhin is back then obviously Adrian is No.1, Caoimhin probably No.2 but we have to see how then he can have some games with the U23s or U21s so that he gets match practice as well", Klopp told the Liverpool website.

With Alisson now ruled out due to a calf injury and the Premier League transfer window shut, Liverpool have swooped for free agent Lonergan, who is set to put pen to paper to a short-term contract.

Gomez is aware that Liverpool's status as Champions League winners has left them with a target on their backs, but he feels there is still "so much more" for the team to achieve in the next 12 months. "Do we really want to see goals disallowed for an offside that's an armpit ahead of another armpit by four millimetres?"

In general, Klopp seemed happy with his side's performance, after a summer with no signings and a turbulent pre-season.

Despite picking up a sixth European Cup last term, there was a still a lingering sense of what might have been for Liverpool in the Premier League, as their 29-year wait for the title continued.

"I don't think we can just rely on what we faced in the past".

"I don't want to make now an exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see".

"We don't know exactly but it doesn't look too good".

"Obviously it's a label that's given now that we achieved what we did last season", he added.

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan is likely to be on the bench in Turkey on Wednesday when Liverpool play Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup.

VAR was used in the FA Cup and League Cup last season before being given the green light by the Premier League for the new campaign.

"His experience is the main thing, he knows what he is doing".

"I think that's going to be our aim this year, just to get as much silverware as possible".
