Liverpool to play European giants in Dubai during World Cup

Liverpool are set to meet Italian giants AC Milan in a mid-season friendly in Dubai. 

The match will take place during the World Cup period as the Reds and other clubs prepare to take part in a training programme similar to pre-season during the month.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the Merseyside club have other friendlies in the pipeline as clubs look to use their time off from domestic action by keeping their non-internationals sharp.

Dubai will provide Jurgen Klopp’s men with a warm climate to train in whilst also being an easy place to get to from Qatar for those who get knocked out of the World Cup early.

Liverpool to travel to Dubai during World Cup

This is an unprecedented scenario that clubs find themselves in as it is the first time a World Cup has ever been held in the winter.

Liverpool’s season is set to come to a halt on November 12th and recommence on Boxing day with a game against Aston Villa.

How the break will affect teams is uncertain at present but it will surely have an impact on some clubs.
