Liverpool fans have been reacting in delight after footage emerged of the team’s new training complex in Kirby and that it is on target for completion.
The Anfield club unveiled images of the on-going development that will replace the iconic Melwood training ground during the next pre-season.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has taken the step of merging both the first team and youth teams onto one complex as part of his coaching philosophy, which includes a sports hall, a pool, two gyms, specialist sports rehabilitation suites and a hydrotherapy complex.
Work on our new training facility in Kirkby is gathering pace 👊
Huge progress has been made over recent months 👌

The site is set for completion at the end of the season, which will see the old Melwood training ground turned into a housing development, and is designed to inspire the younger players.
Supporters were gleeful after seeing the progression of the team’s new site and made their feelings clear on social media.
