Liverpool are set to submit plans for an Anfield development that will add thousands of seats to the home ground
Supporters have seen Jurgen Klopp’s side record an incredible run of 64 league games unbeaten at their fortress of a ground.
And The Athletic have reported that they are planning to fit even more of the Anfield faithful in the stadium.
Liverpool’s proposed redevelopment will bring the total seating to 61,000 by adding 7,000 seats to the ground.
The allocation would see 5,200 become general admission as the remaining 1,800 are offered with lounge and sports bat hospitality.
Work was meant to start at the ground in April – but Covid-19’s suspension of the 2019/20 season saw the work get pushed back.
This was the planned time to submit planning application, with the construction getting started in December to get Anfield ready for the 2022/23 season.
But the virus' impact on top-flight football has seen plans get delayed by 12 months.
Liverpool’s players have already been getting used to new surroundings as they moved into the £50m Kirkby training facility after the international break.
And Reds boss Klopp could barely contain his excitement at the “perfect” new facilities.
“It is a wonderful building — you have everything you need now and for the future,” said the German. “It’s pretty much perfect!
“The working space is actually what I'm really excited about. The office set up and the new indoor and outdoor is really massive.
“Both the rehab and normal gym are exceptional and state of the art. There are some other things as well like the paddle tennis court and tennis court. We have beach soccer, beach volleyball.”
But Klopp goes into the clash after a heated interview on BT Sport over the Reds’ busy fixture schedule.
