Behind-the-scenes Liverpool coach threatens exit to Man Utd or Tottenham

Date published: Friday 3rd April 2020 4:10

Liverpool throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark has said that he could take his expertise to Manchester United or Tottenham next season, also citing Germany as a potential destination.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp brought the Dane to Anfield on a freelance basis ahead of the current campaign and claimed in August that the coach’s skills had already began to rub off on his players.

Indeed, Klopp highlighted that Gronnemark would come in handy given the high number of throw-ins a team usually has in 90 minutes of football.

Speaking to German publication Kicker (via Sport Witness), Gronnemark highlighted how more clubs are becoming aware of the importance of having a throw-in coach and revealed that he could look to move on if given the chance.

Gronnemark also revealed that he had turned down a “top offer” from an English club this season.

“I don’t know, maybe I’ll be with Tottenham or Manchester United next year, as I’m not tied down as a freelancer,” he said.

“I’m just not allowed to be a direct competitor in any one season, that’s my rule. That’s why I have already turned down a top offer from England this season.

“But I would very much like to prove myself in Germany. I don’t know of anyone who does it professionally like I do.

 

“But of course more and more people are recognising the potential, and now some co-trainers are looking into the subject.”

Liverpool sat top of the Premier League table, two wins from victory, before the season was brought to an abrupt halt last month.
