The global health crisis has forced changes in all of our daily lives. With the government enforcing shut downs of swathes of our country, only a few people remain at work with most of us working from home – footballers are no exception. According to The Daily Star, Liverpool are set to resume training next week via video link.
The alteration of society has greatly impacted football.
Every major football league around the world has come to a halt as the globe pulls together in order to halt the spread of the deadly virus.
This cancellation of sporting fixtures for a time left Liverpool’s coronation as Premier League champions up in the air.
There were calls from some corners for the season to be declared null and void but the Premier League put paid to these selfish claims when they declared that the season would be extended indefinitely.
As it stands Melwood is a ghost town, with Liverpool players training from home on individual regimes.
However, that is set to change. The Daily Star has reported that Liverpool will begin training via video link next week in order to maintain the high fitness levels which have characterised The Reds’ title charge.
What RTK has to say
This isn’t only a good idea for health reasons but this is essential for squad morale.
The Reds have performed at such a high level this season because of their incredibly chemistry.
Getting the players together, virtual or not, can only be positive for the side.
Fingers crossed this will all blow over soon and we’ll be back to watching Jürgen Klopp’s men batter all and sundry.
