Liverpool star confirms squad have been told when they will return to training at Melwood

The Liverpool squad have been told they could return to training in mid-May in preparation for their eventual return to action. Jurgen Klopp and his players are just six points away from being crowned champions as the way to end 30 years of hurt rumbles on.

The Premier League have laid on record that they’re committed to finishing the campaign at all costs when it is safe to do so.

It’s a stance that dismisses rumours that the season could be cancelled before starting again in August.

Liverpool do not want that to happen given they’re 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

While no date has been officially confirmed, June 8 is being targeted for when games can return behind closed doors.

Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella has claimed his team-mates have been told they will be back in training in the middle of May.

“We have been told that we will be training separately until the middle of May,” he said.

“Then three or four weeks training with the group and if we can, we could play in June.

“They must take it step by step because until you have a date, you see it far away.”

The Liverpool squad are currently partaking in yoga sessions via Zoom with the fitness coaches.

They have also been handed personalised training programmes to maintain fitness levels.

Klopp is overseeing the sessions and engaging in some banter with his players too.

The club are using a large WhatsApp group to communicate and keep spirits high during difficult times.

The Liverpool boss has been posting some memorable YouTube videos in the group to remind the players of their achievements and ambitions for the future.

“I started with a video about the trophy celebration after the Champions League game,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website. “It came up on my YouTube list and I watched it for three or four minutes, then I put it in the group just with the little phrase ‘still true’.

“So I sent them the Barcelona game, and then I sent the Man City game, the Leicester away game, and the United at home game.

“There were quite a few nice games, just these two-and-a-half, three minute clips, and I told the boys ‘come on, send your favourite videos from the last year, or years’. And there were quite a few nice ones.

“The boys sent a lot of their own videos, which they made when we were driving through the city [after winning the Champions League], and you can see that they really enjoyed that and they are looking forward to something similar.”
