Liverpool are installing a time capsule at the new training centre in Kirkby, which is scheduled to be recovered and opened up in 50 years’ time.
It’s a nice touch from the Reds, who will be giving a slice of history to the next generation.
A frightening thought is that Trent Alexander-Arnold will be 72-years-old when it’s pulled from the ground in 2070.
Details have emerged of the contents of the capsule, with the image below showing off the goodies inside.
It will contain: a note from owners FSG, a 2020/21 shirt, a signed 2019 Champions League shirt, a tribute to Hillsborough, messages from Jurgen Klopp and Jordan Henderson on a USB drive, boots signed by Virgil van Dijk and a pair of Alisson’s gloves, a match programme from the day the Reds won the Premier League title and a pair of the boss’ glasses.

It’s maddening to think Jordan Henderson will be an 80-year-old man (11 years old than Sir Kenny Dalglish is right now) when the time capsule gets cracked open.
But that’s the point, really – these items are for the next generation of Liverpool fans, players and staff. The world will be an unrecognisable place, but future Reds will be well-aware of this current crop of stars and what they achieve.
