Liverpool hafa staðfest að Mauricio Pellegrino muni verða þjálfari aðalliðsins á næsta tímabili. Pellegrino lék nokkra leiki fyrir Liverpool í lok ferilsins, sem voru ekki góðir (vægast sagt), en hann á að baki glæstan feril hjá Valencia og Vélez Sársfield í Argentínu auk þess sem hann lék fyrir Barcelona og Liverpool.
>”His role will be first-team coach, and he’ll also carry out specialist training sessions. He can also work specifically with the defence, and also the reserves. Pellegrino has a winning mentality. He won the Intercontinental Cup before going to Spain with Barcelona and Valencia.
>”He has a lot of passion. When I asked him to come he was very pleased, but first he wanted to find out if there was a school where his three children could play good football. He is a football man.”
