Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made the decision to allow six youngsters to leave their Austrian training base and return to Merseyside.


As half a dozen leave, the Reds are boosted by the arrivals of the Brazilian trio of Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho who all arrived over the weekend after their extended summer breaks.

All three were involved in the Copa America as Brazil reached the final of the competition only to be beaten 1-0 in the final by Argentina.

Klopp's side have just one senior player yet to return to training in the form of skipper Jordan Henderson, with the England international not set to return to club duties until Liverpool return to England.

Liverpool's final leg of their pre-season tour will take place in the French town of Evian, but they will be without a number of young stars who have since already touched back down on English soil.

Due to the number of first-teamers returning, Klopp has opted to send a group of youngsters back to Kirkby to continue their pre-season work ahead of the upcoming campaign.

Goalkeeper Harvey Davies, right-back Conor Bradley, centre-back Billy Koumetio, midfielders Jake Cain and Tyler Morton along with forward Mateusz Musialowski all left the travelling party as the rest made their way to Evian from Austria.

Though a number of prospects have returned to Liverpool, a handful of youngsters have stayed on for the last leg of the tour.

Last season's summer signing Thiago Alcantara is yet to train alongside his teammates, though he is present in the camp, just undergoing a bespoke training programme to reduce injury risk.

Owen Beck, Marcelo Pitaluga, Ben Woodburn, Leighton Clarkson and Kaide Gordon are all still training with a host of first-team regulars.

All three of the Brazilian first-team stars are expected to resume full training on Monday, although their game time is likely to be limited in Thursday's two 60-minute friendlies against Serie A outfit Bologna.
