Liverpool throw-in coach, Thomas Gronnemark, has now clarified his earlier comments about potentially joining Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United next season, reiterating his commitment to the league leaders.

The Reds decided to appoint Gronnemark as their throw-in coach eighteen months ago, something that raised some eyebrows at the time.

Despite working with Jurgen Klopp’s side for almost two full seasons, the Dane hasn’t been offered a permanent contract with the Champions League holders, according to the Express.

The 44-year-old admitted in an interview with Kicker recently that he wasn’t sure what the future held for him and revealed that he could work with Tottenham or Manchester United next season.

However, Gronnemark has now taken to social media to set the record straight by disclosing that he just randomly mentioned Spurs and Man Utd for no particular reason other than to point out that he was a freelancer.

He took to Twitter to post the following message on Friday:

The increasing financial rewards for clubs has meant that teams are looking to maximise every single advantage they can get on the pitch.
