‘We had a fantastic ride’ – Liverpool man posts heartfelt Twitter thread in confirming Reds exit

‘We had a fantastic ride’ – Liverpool man posts heartfelt Twitter thread in confirming Reds exit

Thomas Gronnemark has taken to Twitter to post a heartfelt thread in which he confirmed his impending exit from Liverpool and thanked the club, management team and players for a ‘fantastic ride’ during his five-year association with the Reds.

James Pearce reported for The Athletic on Wednesday that the 47-year-old’s contract at Anfield wouldn’t be renewed once it expires this summer, with an ‘amicable’ departure being agreed upon.

The Dane had been contracted as a throw-in coach on Merseyside, with a number of other clubs also availing of his expertise in that regard, considering his status as the world record holder for the distance achieved with a single utilisation of that particular set piece.

Gronnemark posted a series of tweets on Wednesday evening, saying: “All good things come to an end. Liverpool and I have decided not to continue our agreement about the throw-in coaching after five great seasons. I’m proud of being a part of taking LFC from 18th to 1st in the Premier League on throw-ins under pressure.

“Since then, 25 professional clubs have hired me based on the impressive development in Liverpool – and I´ve been part of 14 titles, promotions and teams punching above their weight.

“The last seasons didn´t allow me to work as much with the throw-ins as I wanted – and therefore it is natural and expectable that we say thanks for this time now.

“Thank you for a great time and cooperation, to Liverpool FC and Jürgen Klopp, the staff and players. We had a fantastic ride.

“What now then, Thomas? Well, exciting things ahead. Three new agreements signed for the upcoming season, also one on a new continent. I am open to even more clubs in the upcoming season.”

There may have been a temptation in some cynical quarters to mock Liverpool over hiring Gronnemark as a throw-in coach when he first came on board in 2018, but there is convincing factual evidence to show that his appointment was not only justified but, in fact, a masterstroke.

As per Tifo Football (via The Guardian), the Reds had the third-worst success rate in the Premier League for throw-ins under pressure (45.4%) in the 2017/18 campaign. Within one season, that had shot up to 68.4%, the second-best return in all of Europe.

The 47-year-old has cited Andy Robertson as a case study of a player who’s improved substantially under his watch, going from someone ‘who couldn’t throw past 19 metres when I met him’ to improving the radius of his throw-ins by more than half a square kilometre (The Guardian).

With Klopp deciding not to grant Gronnemark’s request of more time with the Liverpool players on the training ground, and the Dane being a very rare presence at Kirkby in recent months (The Athletic), a parting of the ways comes as no surprise.

He leaves the Reds with his reputation hugely enhanced, and his role in improving the team massively in one important yet much-overlooked regard will be greatly appreciated by those who worked with him on Merseyside over the past five years.
