Liverpool players ‘unhappy with new £50m training ground because it’s too windy’

Liverpool 's stars are reportedly unhappy with their new training ground in Kirkby because it is too windy.

Back in November, Liverpool made the move to Kirkby from their old base at Melwood, with the new facility boasting two gyms, a swimming pool, two full-size pitches and hydrotherapy suites.

However, according to a report from the Sun, the players want to return to Melwood because of the amount of wind they now have to deal with.

The base is located in an area known as 'Windy Harbour' and the report claims that, although there are no complaints about the actual facilities, the wind has made it difficult to train.

Speaking back in 2017 about the prospect of leaving Melwood, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said a change would "only be good for the future of the club".

"I really love Melwood but football changes," Klopp said. "We cannot avoid this. We can't stay like we always were and hope we can cope with the other clubs.

"Sometimes you have to set standards. It's really good that our owners give us the opportunity to make this big step in the future. Twenty five years ago Melwood set the level. In those 25 years a lot of things happened.

"It's fantastic but we have no space for anything. If we want to have one more office, we don't know where to go. That's the situation.

"Bringing the academy and the first team together is one point but it's also about improving a lot of things that we can't improve here.
