Breaking News ! Being told that you have no long-term future as a Liverpool player is never easy to hear - but leaving just as a global pandemic begins certainly adds another layer of complications. That is what goalkeeper Dan Atherton, a lifelong Liverpool fan, has found over the last year or so since leaving the Reds last summer. Atherton was offered the chance to stick around and be a training goalkeeper, but wanted to move on and try to further his career elsewhere. He was on loan at Marine for a spell during the second half of last season and the now-21-year-old had been training with the Liverpool first team, on and off, for over five years. Finding a new club has not been easy during lockdown, with Atherton now in the US where he exploring his possible next steps while training and coaching over there.

Atherton performs tricks with his feet, posts training videos and saves, and a smattering of other types of videos too, and has racked up millions of views. But is that to try and impress coaches and clubs he could potentially sign for, or is it just something that can be done to pass the time? "It's a little bit of both," he told the ECHO in an exclusive Blood Red podcast interview. "If you speak to anyone in football, it is about making connections and who you know. Listen to the full Dan Atherton exclusive interview as a podcast by clicking HERE "It is a very opinionated sport and one reason for the social media, especially Instagram and LinkedIn, to try and make connections with goalkeeping coaches all over the world. "The stuff on TikTok is more for my mental health than anything else, because let's be honest, me doing a double round-the-world and a couple of tricks is not going to get me a contract as a goalkeeper! "But it just gives me something [to do]. My personality is that if I'm not doing something, I feel like I'm wasting time, so if I'm not in the gym, or running, or working hard, or playing or coaching, I feel like I'm wasting time.

"The TikTok stuff is a bit of fun but it is getting a bit bigger as it goes on and I've ended up with around 15,000 followers and one of the videos has 8.1m views. "It is doing well but it is mainly just because it is not hard on the legs, it doesn't take a lot out of me, but it is something I enjoy doing. "It is just over a year now since I made the decision to leave Liverpool and it is difficult, so that is mainly for mental health to keep myself sane." The search for what next continues but while he didn't ultimately make the grade at Anfield, the goalkeeper could not have a better experience to put forward to potential suitors.

"The period of football they were enjoying during that spell as well - that pre-season and season, I was training with them and we won the league and the Champions League. "It was a very successful year and to be in and around that is something I have always dreamed of as a Liverpool fan. "There is no real words you can use to describe it."
