Kiwis train with Liverpool

It seems it's not just Liverpool's footballers who've turned to Jurgen Klopp for inspiration.

The whole New Zealand rugby league squad turned up for a training session at Melwood to help them prepare for the deciding test match against England in Wigan this weekend.

Jurgen was on hand to share coaching tips, while the Kiwis showed him they're pretty comfortable with the round ball too.

Italy midfielder Claudio Marchisio is not interested in moving to Liverpool and wants to finish his career with Juventus, according to the Turin club's chief executive Giuseppe Marotta.

Marchisio has been linked with a move to Anfield to work under new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp but Marotta says the 29-year-old is going nowhere - despite the Italian club having received "several offers".

"We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying - not selling. We have renewed [our contract] with him, our focus is strong and I think Claudio's first thought is to finish his career here. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers."

Marchisio, a Juventus youth product, signed a new five-year contract in July. The midfielder played in last season's Champions League final and scored in Italy's 2-1 win over England in their first game of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
