Likely date Liverpool will reopen AXA training center after COVID-19 outbreak is revealed – Echo

Liverpool could reopen their AXA training ground on Friday ahead of the club’s next FA Cup meeting with Shrewsbury Town this weekend.

The Reds’ meeting with Arsenal has been postponed following a COVID-19 outbreak that has excluded a host of staff (including deputy boss Pep Lijnders) and players.

‘At lunchtime it was revealed that Liverpool had been forced to temporarily close their £ 50million AXA center due to the rapidly growing number of coronavirus cases,’ the Echo journalist wrote for the publication.

“Liverpool had had discussions with local public health authorities after the outbreak and made the decision to shut down the establishment’s activities for a period of at least 48 hours.

“The club could reopen the base on Friday ahead of the weekend’s FA Cup home game against Shrewsbury, but that’s far from definitive at this point.”

Jurgen Klopp’s men face the Gunners in the Carabao Cup semi-finals on January 13 and 20.

While it’s unfortunate to see another game fall victim to the ongoing pandemic, it’s surprising some of the reactions from rival fans online.

Seeing some question the veracity of our claims, especially after the club confirmed that a youth cup tie would suffer a similar fate to the senior meeting with Mikel Arteta’s men, was disappointing to say the least.

Nonetheless, we hope to see the Reds in action again soon and wish Klopp and co. a speedy recovery.
