On Saturday, Liverpool players and support staff took the plane to Germany and a very important training camp. There is a month until the start of the season, and Jurgen Klopp sees this summer as very important.
This will be very important. Super, very important. We will have many sessions there, and there will not be much free time. Two matches will be played. one in the middle and one at the end, and it becomes very important, he told Liverpoolfc.com.
Liverpool will play against Karlsruher on Wednesday, before there will be new sessions and a match against Greuther Furth on Monday 24 July. The team will then return to Liverpool two days before embarking on a new journey with Singapore as the destination.
The way the pre-season is prepared, most of the work will have to be done in Germany, in a period of ten days. Klopp understands that this is an opportunity for youngsters to show themselves.
– There are not many new players, but we have many young players, of course, and the door is open for young players, and they can play a different role next season. Everyone is a year old and looks very good. Connor Bradley looks really good, so does Ben Doak, and Bobby Clarke grew up, which is natural. They could play a little differently if they wanted to, and like I said, the door is open for that, he says.
– That we can get everything together and train as much as possible, with a short walk back to the family, canteen or restaurant is fine. We’ve got two games, and they’re the first two we’re going to play, so of course it’s going to be fun, he says.
At the same time, there is a huge buzz around Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, who are both wanted by clubs in Saudi Arabia. Unless something big happens soon, they are both going to Germany for training camp.
