Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he is looking forward to taking the Reds to a different part of their global fan base once again.
“The supporters came here today and whether it’s a friendly or a competitive game, their support was absolutely fantastic – so thanks to them for their support.
“We’ll now go to the other side of the world and see many more of our great supporters.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction. When I first came here, we went to Boston and had a tour of North America, which went really well. It was my first pre-season and we had great support.
“Two years later, it’ll be interesting to see because the club has moved forward and we’ve moved onto a different level now. I’m sure the supporters will be there in force.
“The most important thing for us is getting to work with the players. We still have a lot of work to do – physical and tactical work to implement. But it’s always nice to see the many great supporters of Liverpool and that’s something I’m looking forward to.”
