Liverpool’s new left back Andy Robertson will join Emre Can in starting pre-season for the Reds today as the pair join their teammates at Melwood.

Robertson was announced as a Liverpool player on Friday and will start training today under Jürgen Klopp.

The Scottish fullback will play understudy to James Milner and is raring to go.

According to Liverpool’s official website, Robertson will participate in a double session with his teammates at Melwood as the Reds prepare for the Audi Cup set to take place in Germany in a week’s time.

The former Hull City defender, despite flying from the Championship club’s pre-season tour to join Liverpool, will need to work hard to reach the fitness standards required of players by Klopp and co.

Emre Can is also due back at Melwood to resume training with his teammates after arriving back on Sunday for medical assessment.

The German midfielder’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent days but Klopp has appeared confident when quizzed on his future at the club.

With Can’s contract situation yet to be resolved, Liverpool are holding onto a player that has entered the final 12 months of his contract. The no.23 is a very important player to Liverpool as his form in the latter stages of last season would suggest.

Although it was no doubt a team effort, Can’s late season resurgence meant that Klopp didn’t need to worry too much about Jordan Henderson’s injury enforced absence and achieving Champions League qualification had a lot to do with Can’s brilliant form.

Liverpool train at Melwood today and tomorrow before flying to Munich on Wednesday for their training programme in Germany, of which the Audi Cup is a large feature.

Jürgen Klopp will travel with a full squad after Sadio Mané recovered from his knee injury suffered in April.

Liverpool will play Hertha Berlin and then Bayern Munich who should be a real indicator of whether or not the Reds can handle the big boys in Europe this season.
