Liverpool returned to training today as Government approves players to resume training.
Liverpool returned to a non-contact training in their Melwood ground earlier today for the first time since the deadly outbreak.
Klopp and his men hope to secure the Premier League title soon as hopes embed on the resumption date forecast.
With 92 fixtures all together left to officially end the 2019/2020 English Premier League season, Liverpool aren’t yet invincible as they still need to secure 6 points from their remaining 9 games.
Lifting of the limitations set by the Government have allowed these players come back in small groups to train after all 20 clubs unanimously voted to a return-to training protocols on Monday’s “Project Restart” meeting.
Clubs are expected to expose each player to no more than 75 minutes of training and no more than 5 players should be in a group as the UK government works to combat the spread.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp disclosed that he has been really happy since the start of this day, knowing that he would be getting to see his boys again.
According to the former Dortmund manager, he had even woken earlier than he did on other days since the lock-down as he felt like it was the first day at a new school.
“I woke up even earlier than usual and then I realised it was my first day,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.
“It felt like the first day at school – for me, it was 46 years ago, but it must have been similar.
“I dressed myself in my uniform again – and for the right reason, for going to training.”
“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,” Klopp continued.
“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 organise it between us when we are allowed to, but it will not be the same like in other pre-seasons.”
The manager added that in as much as he is happy his boys got a real rest during the 9-weeks off, he is clearly aware of the worries associated to this particular rest unlike the others.
“Of course, you cannot rest when you are worried about the situation in the world, not in the same way like you do on a proper holiday.”
Several protocols have been put in place to as well help combat the spread while the men train, such included disinfecting surfaces after each session among the others.
Klopp added that protocols adopted are of a brilliant starndard as it will assure his side train in a very safe enviroment.
“Then hopefully for all of us we will get good news because that always would mean the development was in the right direction for the whole country and then for the league as well,” he added.
