Liverpool buried Jurgen Klopp glasses, Van Dijk boots and other items in their new training ground

Share This

A pair of Jurgen Klopp's glasses, Virgil van Dijk's match-worn boots and video messages from club legends have been included in a time capsule buried at Liverpool's new training ground.

The steel capsule, which contains dozens of different items and is located outside the visitors' entrance to the AXA Training Centre, will be opened in 2070.


Klopp led Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years last season having won the Champions League the year before.
The state-of-the-art £50million training facility in Kirkby opened its doors this week after the club moved from its base of some 70 years at Melwood.
The time capsule contains a pair of Klopp's iconic spectacles, worn during a match, a pair of boots donated by defender Van Dijk and a signed pair of goalkeeping gloves from Alisson Becker.

To commemorate Liverpool's sixth European Cup success in 2019, there is a shirt and programme signed by the players involved in the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid.

Squad photographs of every age group team within the academy are included as well as a combined squad photo featuring the men's and women's first teams.
Owners Fenway Sports Group have penned a letter to future Liverpool fans, while there is a 'Melwood Through Time' book featuring a collection of photographs of the old training ground from the late 1950s to the present day.
Klopp, captain Jordan Henderson and club legends Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish and John Aldridge, plus women's team manager Vicky Jepson, have all recorded video messages to future fans.


The Reds have also built an altitude chamber, in which the players can train in 40 degree heat, 90% humidity and low oxygen levels.
