Did the players need to meet him?
I was listening to The Athletics podcast on Liverpool yesterday and seemingly LFC are being quite strict around who the players can interact with at the moment. At least in an official capacity.
Public appearances are cancelled for first team, acadamy and womens teams. Less players are going to the mix zone post match. James Milner wasnt allowed to go do some usual post match stuff around the Man of the Match award on Saturday.
I kinda thought that would just be standard practice for all teams but seemingly not.
