Happy Monday and welcome back to another news round-up here at Rush the Kop. As ever on Monday mornings, I'm here to give you the biggest news headlines surrounding Liverpool Football Club from over the weekend.

Various Reds were in action over the weekend for their national teams with some very fine performances being put out.

No more time to waste, let's get into it!

Pep Lijnders wants to sign Bobby Clark at RB Salzburg

Clark had a true first-team breakout in 2023/24 as he was called upon as a result of various injuries throughout the Liverpool squad.

He made some lasting impacts, particularly in the League Cup Final triumph. He is a classy player that can pick out a pass with the best of them. He made 12 appearances in the heart of the Reds midfield as he looked mature and composed when called upon.

One man that saw this growth on the pitch and behind the scenes was new RB Salzburg manager and former Klopp No. 2, Pep Lijnders.

It is reported that Lijnders wants to sign Clark on a loan deal to bring him to Austria and give him a significant role.

This could be a win-win for everyone involved as he would be going to a coach Liverpool is comfortable with while also gaining valuable experience.

Darwin Nunez scores in Copa America opener

Uruguay kicked off their 2024 Copa America campaign on a winning note as they defeated Panama 3-1. One of the men on the scoresheet was our special Captain Chaos.

He got the start up top and was the focal point in the attack as he played well and with confidence. It was not a vintage display, but it continued to build his confidence which can only be good for club and country.

He will look to build on this performance going forward as he continues to be an integral part of the Uruguay outlook in this tournament.

This was a good way to kickstart things and long may it continue.

Adrian finally departs Liverpool

Following a string of one-year contracts, the 37-year old Spaniard is finally going back home. He will be signing with Real Betis in La Liga.

He has not played a competitive match for the Reds in over a year and this move is not a shocking development. Liverpool did offer him a new one-year deal, but Adrian believes the time is right to end his stay in England.

His heroic efforts at the beginning of the Premier League title winning season while Alisson was out injured will never be forgotten.

We wish him all the best and thank him for his services.
