Liverpool’s return to non-contact training “felt like the first day at school,” says manager, Jurgen Klopp


The government eased restrictions have allowed players to train in small groups in staggered sessions. All clubs apparently agreed to stage one of the return-to-training protocols at Monday’s “Project Restart” meeting.

Training in groups of no more than five, sessions not to last longer than 75 minutes for each player and social distancing to be adhered to are some of the precautions taken while training.

The Premier League leaders worked in small groups at their Melwood training ground on Wednesday for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown.

“I woke up even earlier than usual and then I realized it was my first day”. Said Klopp

“It felt like the first day at school for me, it was 46 years ago. But it must have been similar. I dressed in my uniform again for going to training.”

Klopp said he was “really happy” to see his players again and that they were all in “good spirits” and “good shape”. The manager was glad his players had had a “real rest” during the nine weeks off in lockdown as opposed to two or three weeks of holiday per year.

However, he added, “Of course, you cannot rest when you are worried about the situation in the world. Not in the same way as you do on a proper holiday.”

“We don’t know exactly how long we have. But we have some time to prepare the rest of this season and already the next season because I don’t think there will be a massive break between the two.”

“It’s a pre-season for us. We don’t know how long and we will not have test games or friendlies. Maybe we can organize it between us when we are allowed to. But it will not be the same as in other pre-seasons.”
