Liverpool have now moved into their new training base and announced on Tuesday that a pair of Jurgen Klopp’s glasses were buried on site.
The Premier League side celebrated the opening of their new £50m AXA Training Centre after bidding farewell to Melwood last week, where the Reds had spent almost 70 years.
A steel time capsule has been installed at the new training centre and it will include a pair of Klopp’s glasses.
The capsule will be opened in 2070 in order to give future generations of players and fans an insight into Liverpool’s past success.
Jurgen Klopp became the first coach in 30 years to lead Liverpool to the league title last campaign and also guided the team them to Champions League victory in 2019.
This capsule will also include a signed pair of Virgil van Dijk boots, signed Alisson Becker gloves and a also tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
“Today is a really special day for the team — it has been a long time coming,” Klopp said in a statement. “There has been a lot of steps, meetings with architects, designers, everybody!
