Port Talbot host Liverpool FC training session
A squad worth hundreds of millions descended on Welsh Football League side Port Talbot Town today, as Liverpool FC arrived at the Genquip Stadium for a training session.
Jurgen Klopp’s squad used the stadium, often dubbed the ‘Sand Siro’ in preperation for their English Premier League clash at Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium this evening.
The ground is somewhat a change of scenery compared to the glitz and glamour of the Premier League, but volunteers and staff at the ground were on hand to ensure the session went smoothly.

Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League and chasing Champions League qualification.
Port Talbot cannot share the same goals this season, as they sit eighth in the second tier Welsh Football League.
Talbot are however in their own right a European club, as they featured in the 2010/11 Europa League qualifying first round against Finnish side TPS Turku.
Photos shared on Twitter confirm the likes of recent £75m singing Virgil Van Dijk, Adam Lallana and Mohamed Salah were in attendance.
