Liverpool reserves boss Gary Ablett has revealed how the Hicks family are looking after his young squad during the Dallas Cup.

The Reds have won their opening two games - 7-1 against FK Slavija and 5-1 against Mexico's Tigres - and Ablett told "It was a fantastic venue and a great pitch. There were about 4,000 or 5,000 people there and they saw a good performance from a good Liverpool team.

"We spoke to Tom Hicks Jr and his brother - they've been magnificent and have really looked after us. They're taking us to see their ice hockey team on Wednesday and possibly the NBA on Thursday. The hospitality has been fantastic."
