I'm happy and proud to announce that I have signed a new contract with Liverpool FC for the 20/21 season🖋
I'm a freelance throw-in coach, and there is great interest from other clubs at the moment. Looking forward to help more teams with "The Long, Fast and Clever Throw-in"⚽️ pic.twitter.com/va0DBrvoHY

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Pundit Andy Gray could not understand why Liverpool hired a throw-in coach back in 2018. He mocked Liverpool for hiring Gronnemark.
“I know how you can take advantage of a situation, throw it to one of your own players,” Gray told the Mirror.
“That would be No.1. No.2. Keep hold of the ball. Maybe we are going to see Andy Robertson do a headstand and take it.
“Here is a lesson. Pick the ball up, take it behind your head, throw it to a teammate and keep both feet on the ground.
“I have got a new one. I want to be the first kick-off coach.”
However, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has stated that Gronnemark has had a big impact at Liverpool.
If Klopp thought Gronnemark would not improve Liverpool, then he would never have hired him back in 2018.
Klopp also would not have given Gronnemark a contract extension if he was doing a poor job.
Whatever Gronnemark is doing behind the scenes, it must be impressing Klopp and company.
People like Gray can say what they want. The reality is, Klopp is a Champions League and Premier League winner.
Klopp’s opinion matters more.
