'I'm training with the world's best set of defenders - it's great for me'

Rhys Williams will strive to absorb as much as possible from a pool of defenders he considers the world's best during Liverpool's pre-season training camp.

The young centre-back was joined by Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk in the first team session of the stay in Austria on Tuesday morning, as that trio returned to group work following their respective long-term injuries.

New signing Ibrahima Konate was also present – and Williams has detailed his determination to learn plenty as he looks to build on a 2020-21 campaign during which he made 19 first-team appearances for the Reds.
