  • Liverpool throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark 'has the weirdest job in football'

    homas Gronnemark was perhaps the most surprising arrival at Liverpool this season after a summer of big spending on the likes of Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita.

    Jurgen Klopp said he had never heard of a throw-in coach before employing the Dane.

    The appointment of the 42-year-old, who also holds the world record for the longest throw-in at 51.33m.

    "I know it is totally the weirdest job in the world," Gronnemark, who thinks he is the world's first throw-in specialist, told BBC Sport.

    Former Stoke midfielder Rory Delap may be the best known exponent of the long throw-in in the Premier League era, but Gronnemark says his brief at Anfield is "not to turn Liverpool into the second Stoke".
