However, after an inspection, the German said: "The locker rooms are in excellent condition, there is no difference with last year.

"The guest one has not been touched."

Goal says Liverpool were interested in signing Laporte prior to his move to City.

The report suggests Jurgen Klopp viewed the Frenchman as the ideal candidate to bolster their defence prior to signing Virgil Van Dijk.

However, City's long-standing interest and Athletic Bilbao demanding payment up front scuppered the deal.

Laporte later signed for the Citizens and became a key player under Pep Guardiola.

The Dutchman gave the visitors the lead before Liverpool stormed back to win 3-1.

But Willems has taken a few positives from how his side played in spells against the champions of Europe.

We need to believe and keep working, trying," he said.

"We are capable. We have had tough games already against Arsenal and lost also because of a mistake. We beat Tottenham and played well. We need to keep believing."

<![CDATA[​Liverpool star Mane worth much more than £100m - Aldridge]]> <p>Liverpool legend John Aldridge believes that Sadio Mane is worth more than 100 million.<br></p><p>The Senegalese winger was always seen as a talented attacker, but he has increased his goal output and improved his consistency in recent months.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/liverpool-star-mane-worth-much-more-than-100m-aldridge-4297036?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BLiverpool'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Liverpool legend John Aldridge believes that Sadio Mane is worth more than 100 million.

The Senegalese winger was always seen as a talented attacker, but he has increased his goal output and improved his consistency in recent months.

Such improvements mean that Aldridge sees Mane as near irreplaceable, hence the high price tag.

Mane has 65 goals in 129 Premier League games for the club.

Aldridge told the Irish Independent: "Mane was something of an unknown quantity when Liverpool signed him from Southampton in the summer of 2016 and while he always had raw pace, Klopp and his coaching staff have turned him into a potent scoring weapon in the last couple of seasons.

"He is there with Salah now as a scoring threat and if either of the pair were put up for sale by Liverpool (which is not happening by the way!) the fee they would command would be well beyond the 100m mark.

"Keeping those three fit is vital to Liverpool and Klopp's hopes of success this season, with the opening few weeks of this season confirming the European champions mean business in the Premier League."

Since arriving at the Reds, Van Dijk has come on leaps and bounds.

He has not only emerged as their best defender, but the de facto leader on the pitch.

And Klopp believes that Van Dijk is a true inspiration to any young player who wants to make it in the game.

Speaking about Van Dijk, Klopp said to the Liverpool Echo: "He's been very good.

"Look, the nice thing about his career is that he was not 16 years old and everyone saw he would be a world-class player.

"And it shows, to not just him, but everyone out there, you need talent - because he obviously had talent - but it is not about the judgement other people make about you when you are 16, 17, 18. It is always about what you make of it.

"Life is like this, we all have a situation, these are different but you have to make the best of it. That is the job in life and I'm really happy for him that he could show all these doubters in his past that they were wrong."

<![CDATA[Liverpool boss Klopp: Van Dijk has fulfilled world-class potential]]> <p>Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Virgil Van Dijk has fulfilled his potential.<br></p><p>The Dutchman was a big money acquisition from Southampton in January 2018.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/liverpool-boss-klopp-van-dijk-has-fulfilled-world-class-potential-4297031?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BLiverpool'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Virgil Van Dijk has fulfilled his potential.

The Dutchman was a big money acquisition from Southampton in January 2018.

Many questioned the massive fee the Reds paid for his signature.

But Klopp believes that Van Dijk has repaid his transfer fee and then some.

"I cannot say that I watched him for the last six years and thought 'ahh I wait a little bit longer and then I get him' but the two years he played at Southampton before he got injured, that was really incredible," Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

"I saw something of him at Celtic, but I didn't see this world-class player, already. I saw a very-good centre-half, but I didn't need one at that time.

"And then when we needed him in the moment, it was clear, he can make the next step with us. The way we play, where everyone is responsible for everything, it gives defenders the chance to improve a lot because it is not like they are alone a lot of times on the pitch and have to sort it for you.

"There are moments but it doesn't happen a lot because we defend really as a unit. That makes life a bit easier but anyway, he has gone from a world-class potential to a world-class player. There's still a step to go but he made this step and he deserves all these awards, that is how it is.

"There was no one really who was better and it is nice."

The Reds begin their defence of the title with a tricky game against the talented Italian outfit.

And Klopp knows that if his side are not at their best, Napoli will be happy to pounce on any weaknesses.

The last time these sides met in Naples, the home side won 1-0 through a Lorenzo Insigne goal.

"We talk a lot about intensity," Klopp said about the game to reporters.

"The Napoli game last season was not intensity. It was an organisation problem.

"We were just not all the things we do, all the things we tell the boys, it is all about intensity and how much we have to invest, but before that it is all about information, what do you have to do in these moments?

"And Napoli plays a specific style. To make it very simple, we played against them in our defending like they had one No.6 but they had two sixes, the cheeky bastards!

"We knew before [the game]. We told them they had two sixes, but then everyone came too late and that was when it started. We tried to change it in the game and nobody listened and nobody could change. In the end they were lucky they scored [a late goal] but we were lucky it was only 1-0. It was really this kind of off day."

The Reds are defending their European crown, which only Real Madrid has managed in recent memory.

While they are still blessed with an incredibly talented squad, Henderson does not see them as being the de facto favourites.

Henderson said the following to the club's official website: "I think it's too early to be saying stuff like that.

"For us, we've started the season really well and we just want to continue that on.

"We still feel we can improve and still get better, so that's what we try to do tomorrow night, try to give everything and start the campaign off really well.

On Tuesday's first Champions League clash of the season against Napoli, the Englishman added: "Maybe [we are favourites], but I feel as though being at Liverpool, everybody wants to beat you anyway. It's the same for us we want to beat everybody we play, they want to beat us.

"For us, it's the same as it always has been to give everything in every single game we play.

"We know that it'll be a tough game tomorrow, they're a great side but we've got to concentrate on what we can do. If we can perform to the level I know we can then we have a good opportunity to win the game."

The talented youngster enjoyed game time for the Reds in pre-season, but he will be hoping to make an impression in competitive games.

Brewster has been named in the squad to face Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday, and Henderson believes he is ready to perform.

He said: "Rhian has been really good. Pre-season he was really strong, in training he's been really good.

"It gives us another option of course, we've got a lot of strength in this squad.

"He's been doing really well and he just needs to continue in that way."

The young striker, who is often the team's go-to option off the bench, is a doubt for their UEFA Champions League game against Napoli.

Origi suffered an ankle problem in the 3-1 win against Newcastle on Sunday in the Premier League.

But Klopp thinks that Origi should be back within the next month.

"The update on Div is that it is not too serious," he said to the club's official website of Origi's fitness.

"We expect him [to be out for] between one and two weeks, but it depends a little bit on when he can deal with the pain.

"It is nothing really; it's a feeling, but it should be fine."
