Life under Klopp, just how good van Dijk is, and unique insight into the power of Anfield

We had the pleasure of chatting to former Liverpool defender, and new QPR signing, Conor Masterson for our latest podcast. Speaking to Jonathan Higgins, the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international tells us his story of how he went from playing for his local side, Lucan United, to joining the Reds, his childhood dream club. Conor spent more than five years with Liverpool with one of the big highlights being the night he was included in the squad for the famous 3-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. The 20-year-old talks in detail about that magical night, the amazing atmosphere, the reception for the Liverpool team bus, and how it led to blowing City away, offering a unique insight into the real power of Anfield's 12th man. Conor also explains the impact Jurgen Klopp had on his career, and just how good Virgil Van Dijk is on the training ground, plus the badly timed injured that impacted his Reds career, but how he can’t wait to get started in the Championship this weekend with his new club QPR. We also hear about Conor’s pride in wearing the green of Ireland, his excitement about compatriot and Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, and his hopes for the future. It's a great listen - enjoy.
