Liverpool: Premier League club to open academy in India

The Anfield club have joined up with Indian side DSK Shivajians to establish a permanent set-up for young players in Pune.

The LFC International Football Academy DSK, which will open in January, will be a purpose-built residential complex.

It will feature a number of full-size pitches, practice areas, classrooms, changing rooms, a gym, canteen, lecture theatre and medical facilities.

It will support players up to the age of 18 and coaches from Liverpool will work on the project.

Academy director Frank McParland told the club's official website: "At the academy in Liverpool we aim to develop outstanding players and good human beings.

"The results speak for themselves, as last season seven academy players made their first-team debuts.

"Education and community work is key to the development of our young players and we look forward to taking our knowledge and experience of developing young footballers to India."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
