Liverpool set to jet off to Spain to train for Champions League final

Liverpool Press Conference and Training Session

Jürgen Klopp will be taking his squad to Marbella in Spain to prepare for the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

With the Premier League season completed, the Reds can finally turn their attention to Kiev and the Champions League final the Ukranian city will be hosting.

Liverpool finished fourth in the league, confirming their European status for the 2018/19 season but before summer transfers are conducted and the World Cup can be enjoyed, there is the small matter of a European Cup final to attend to.

The likes of Mohamed Salah will be salivating at the chance to fell a European stalwart in Real Madrid.

As reported by James Pearce in the Liverpool ECHO on Tuesday, Klopp has organised a training camp in Marbella to prepare for the club’s biggest game in a decade.

They will jet off today after the players were granted two days leave after the close of the Premier League season. The training camp will last for four days and is one that Klopp has used before to great effect.

In February, after a lengthy break between fixtures due to the Reds’ elimination from the FA Cup, Klopp took his players to Spain for a training camp and on their return to action, West Ham were beaten 4-1 in the Premier League.

Pearce writes: “As well as being able to train in the 21-degree sunshine and use the top-class facilities in Marbella, Klopp is keen for the Reds to have a change of scenery as they gear up for the biggest game of their lives.”

As Klopp has said before, team cohesion is massive for the way he has his players operate and the gaffer is keen for the training camp to offer another opportunity for the team to bond.

The chemistry between Liverpool’s front three is a testament to how important it is for your best (and worst) players to be close and part of a tight-knit unit.
