Latest from the boss

Jurgen Klopp has given an update from Liverpool’s training camp in Austria.

The Reds take on RB Salzburg tomorrow – and the boss has given the latest on injuries and preparations.


“We are coming close to the end, but there are still two very, very important sessions to come. This afternoon we have an 11 versus 11 session, tactical stuff, really important, and then tomorrow night the game against Salzburg.”


“So far, I couldn’t be happier, to be honest, because 10 or 11 days ago we had no idea if we could go to a camp, we had no real solution. But thanks to our guys, with Ray [Haughan] and Phil Holliday – and thanks to OnSide, I have to say, who organised it here – it is unbelievable. It is one of the best camps we ever had – and nobody would have thought that a few days ago. It is absolutely great.”


“It is not cool that in the moment we have one or two injuries; not massive, but enough, and for the players it is always bad and we want to have the pre-season for all of them. But so far, most of the things we could do with the majority of the players, so that helps – but it must do because in five days we will play against Arsenal and that will be a tough one.

“Ki-Jana [Hoever] rolled his ankle here a little bit, but I was told he was involved in parts this morning and will be in the full session this afternoon, so we should have the same squad like the Stuttgart game.”
