This has popped in multiple media sources. Would be a nice tribute.

Liverpool set to face Osasuna in pre-season friendly in honour of former Red Michael Robinson, who passed away last year.

According to Radio Marca Navarra, Liverpool are set to host Spanish side Osasuna this pre-season in a match that will serve as a tribute to former player Michael Robinson.

While no confirmation has arrived from the club's end yet, this game is supposedly one of the two pre-season friendlies at Anfield.

Robinson was a Red for one season back in the 1983-84 season. Reddit user @scifiphichipsi explains his career: "Robinson died in April last year from melanoma.

"He was mainly a sub for Liverpool, having to fight for a place up top with both King Kenny and Ian Rush, but he made enough appearances for a medal for both the League and European Cup Liverpool won in 83-84.

"He moved to QPR at the end of that season, before finishing his career at Osasuna, saying: 'Financially it was the worst offer, but it was romantic'.

"He recalled that he assumed that Osasuna was the name of the club's location and proceeded to look for it on a map. He stayed in Spain after retiring, spoke the language fluently, and enjoyed a long broadcasting career after retirement."

Osasuna, also nicknamed ‘The Reds’, finished last season 11th in La Liga.

The final date for the game hasn't been set yet, but it could take place in August.

As was touched on on TAW this week, it seems a little bit crackers that we're still waiting to confirm this in an ever-evolving COVID environment. If ever there was a season to stay on British shores it's surely this one.

Can't be arsed with PL clubs in pre-season but I guess we may have limited options this summer. Man Utd are playing Brentford and Everton I think.

Spurs are playing Chelsea and Arsena 10 or so days before the season. I know they’re friendlies but least they’ll be competitive and a bit of extra edge.

Saw on the news today that Germany will allow travel from the UK from tomorrow, i'm guessing Switzerland and Austria will follow suit and the team will be doing pre season training in the Alps.

Liverpool's Austria training camp plans - Squad confirmed
« Reply #19 on: July 9, 2021, 09:09:02 am »
Liverpool's pre-season programme will begin on Monday July 12 with a training camp in Austria.

The Reds will start preparations for the 2021-22 campaign in the state of Salzburg, with a number of senior players set to report for duty on day one as part of a 34-man squad.

Jürgen Klopp’s side will also undertake work across Austria at a base in Tyrol later in the camp.

New signing Ibrahima Konate is among the players due to begin training on Monday following his transfer from RB Leipzig.

Details of Liverpool’s warm-up fixtures, and subsequent broadcast details, will be confirmed in due course.

Assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders said: “We look forward to going to Austria again for the start of our pre-season. All the conditions to prepare the team there are just at a very high level.

“We will use this to go back to basics. When you ask a lot from your players you have to give a lot as well – and we find all of this in Austria.”

Players reporting for pre-season training on July 12

James Milner, Adrian, Ben Davies, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip, Nat Phillips, Divock Origi, Ben Woodburn, Rhys Williams, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kostas Tsimikas, Caoimhin Kelleher, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Taiwo Awoniyi, Marko Grujic, Harvey Elliott, Loris Karius, Takumi Minamino, Jake Cain, Leighton Clarkson, Marcelo Pitaluga, Harvey Davies, Billy Koumetio, Owen Beck, Kaide Gordon, Mateusz Musialowski, Tyler Morton, Conor Bradley.

Great to see such a lot of first team players there from the start. I always think it's a shame when new players don't get to start out in Liverpool meeting everyone, before going off to a training camp, but I'm sure Ibou will cope!

Karius on that list though! :-[

A bit light in midfield with no Henderson, Thiago or Fabinho, but we can actually put out a decent 11. Good for the the academy boys to be involved with a strong squad.

Are there any Red Bull players we can tap up?

Always exciting seeing youngsters with the first team for an extended period. Bradley should get plenty of game time with no Neco and TAA coming back from injury. Pitaluga might get some minutes with Alisson at the Copa America. Might even see Kaide Gordon up front with the big boys at some point.

Huge chance for Bradley to impress. If he plays well you’d imagine there’s a great chance of him getting plenty of minutes next season.

Would be great if one of the young forwards were to make a quick breakthrough but I don’t see it happening. I think Koop will be much more careful with them.
