Linking Liverpool FC to Clove’s Most Sought After Devices
The regular season comes to it’s spectacular climax on Saturday evening, as Liverpool take on Spanish galactico’s Real Madrid in the Champions League Final. But if each Liverpool man were one of Clove Technology’s most sought after devices, which would they be and why?
Karius: CAT B25
Much like the CAT B25, Liverpool’s shot stopper survives everything thrown at him with little nonsense or fuss. Endurance is everything for both, and the CAT B25 is dust resistant, drop proof and waterproof. Karius will face similar challenges on Saturday evening, however much like the CAT device, will be ready when needed.
Alexander-Arnold: OnePlus 6
OnePlus’ newest starlet and Liverpool’s latest prodigy. Marketed with the slogan ‘The Speed You Need’, the OnePlus 6 utilises a custom OxygenOS system that is optimised to create a smooth, slick and fast experience. Alexander-Arnold has taken Anfield pressures in his stride and races up the wing time and time again. Final product is everything, and both the young red and the OnePlus 6 never disappoint.
Van Dijk: Archos Sense 50x
A rugged smartphone and an international centre-back. What do both have in common? Protection. However, both the Archos 50x and Virgil Van Dijk offer that little bit more. Alongside extensive protection and solid construction, key to both, the Archos smartphone has an impressive specification. Van Dijk similarly has further strings to his bow, cool, calm and collected, unbeatable in the air and even boasts an impressive set piece!
Lovren: Moto Z2 Force
Dejan Lovren boasts a wealth of experience, however tends to go under the radar playing alongside his £75million defensive partner. Motorola have utilised over 50 years of experience to produce the Moto Z2 Force; a very impressive Moto flagship that perhaps doesn’t get the praise it deserves. The Z2 Force offers top of the range hardware alongside a five-layered ShatterShield display that refuses to shatter. Similarly, Lovren stands tall time and time again in the face of adversity; both on and off the pitch.
Robertson: Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact
The XZ2 Compact has a bit of everything without unnecessary flash; a 19MP camera, an HDR certified display and speakers powered by Sony’s S-Force surround system. A ‘proper footballer’, Andy Robertson has taken life at Liverpool in his stride, offering defensive stability and attacking prowess week in-week out.
Henderson: BlackBerry KeyONE
Communication is key. The BlackBerry KeyONE prides itself on communication; using the BlackBerry Hub to consolidate all messages in one place. In the face of Real Madrid, captain Henderson will have to ensure his players understand instructions, share tactics and boost morale.
Wijnaldum: iPhone 8
Strong, practical and popular. You know what you’re getting from both Apple’s iPhone 8 and Liverpool’s Wijnaldum. Wijnaldum will need to ensure that he keeps the ball ticking over with speed and efficiency on Saturday evening, much like the iPhone’s A11 Bionic processor.
Milner: CAT S61
Tough yet stylish, the CAT S61 is a thoroughly rugged smartphone with useful features beyond the norm. Much like the CAT device, Milner is a tough-tackling, no-nonsense utility player whose performance, skill and doggedness can never be questioned.
Mane: Honor 10
A Kirin 970 chipset makes the Honor 10 incredibly fast and capable, whilst a bold mirror finish shifts colours at each 5-degree angle. Sadio Mane boasts exceptional pace, talent and technique. He is undoubtedly up there with the best, however much like the Honor 10, just hasn’t quite got enough to match the very elite.
Salah: Huawei Mate RS Porsche
The cream of the crop. The Huawei Mate Porsche design comes with all the best features of Huawei’s critically acclaimed and industry-leading P20 Pro, with an eye-catching design. Salah has been untouchable for Liverpool this season; Premier League top scorer and record breaker. The comparisons are endless.
Firmino: Samsung Galaxy S9
Everything that you could ask from a striker. Everything that you could ask from a smartphone. The attractive features of the S9 are endless; an infinity display, dual-aperture lens, AR, high-res fingerprint sensor and fast charging. So too, Firmino has it all; pace, vision, technique, work rate.
