Like millions of Reds fans all over the world, it was back down to earth for our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce when he returned to work at the office after a historic weekend in Madrid. But such is the nature of following the Reds, there is very rarely a quiet day, and late last Tuesday afternoon it was confirmed that Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno are leaving the club. And, in his last podcast before he has some very well-deserved time off, James Pearce speaks to Paul Wheelock to give his reaction to the news and look back on Sturridge's rollercoaster Anfield career, which started in a blaze of goals and ultimately ended on a glorious high. Paul asks James whether Jurgen Klopp will be targeting replacements at left-back and up front, with the answer to the latter question particularly interesting. Our man in the know at Anfield also talks the future of Champions League final goalscoring hero Divock Origi as well as key men James Milner and Joel Matip before James gives us the latest on Liverpool's pre-season plans and what is still to come.

  • And if you'd like to hear more from James, Ian Doyle, Neil Fitzmaurice and Peter Hooton about the Champions League win, there are still tickets available for our latest Blood Red Live event, taking place at the Baltic Market in Liverpool on Wednesday (June 5). Click HERE to buy your tickets.
