The Liverpool manager has warned his players representing their various counties in the Euros and the Copa America that they should be prepared for a demanding pre-season when they get back.
Pre-season is the best time for team bonding, also this will be Klopp’s first Pre-season with his squad and management team.
“The problem with pre-season is that the first three weeks we have 15 players who will have been away at the Euros and we also have to see how the squad is changing,” said Klopp.
“On another planet we would have six weeks together because in this league it is the only time that you can train. In all of the games we will play out full training.
“So if we play our best in pre-season then I’ve done something completely wrong. It’s another session, it’s not about beating our opponents. I don’t care about how big the opponent.
“We have to do a lot to create a base for one year. We have a special plan of what we want to do with the boys. They cannot go home now when they are off.
