Basketball superstar LeBron James has posted a message to Jürgen Klopp and his Liverpool squad ahead of this summer’s trip to the United States.

Fresh from recently being crowned NBA Finals champion with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the 31-year-old took to his official Facebook account to express his excitement at the Reds’ visit to America with the status update and photo at the foot of this page.

Klopp and his team will cross the Atlantic next week, where they’ll take on Chelsea in Pasadena and AC Milan in Santa Clara as part of the International Champions Cup series. There’s also a date with AS Roma in St Louis too, before Liverpool head back to the UK.

Tickets are still on sale for those matches – for details on how to purchase, click here.
