Midland League Division One club Leicester Road had some star guests this week after hosting a training session for Premier League giants Liverpool.


Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff put star players like Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Phillippe Coutinho through their paces at the club’s Leicester Road stadium home.

The session was arranged when representatives of the Anfield club contacted Leicester Road looking for a venue to host a training session ahead of their Premier League clash against Leicester City on Monday night.

The Reds were beaten by the reigning Premier League champions at the King Power Stadium.

The Reds arrived on Monday morning and were given a tour of the stadium before holding a training session on the pitch.

Members of the Leicester Road development squad were also integrated into the session

The Reds left a signed shirt with Leciester Road, which they say “will take pride of place in the new club house for all to see”
