Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken about his players ahead of pre-season, and noted that Sadio Mane and Mo Salah will work their way into the season.
He noted that the Liverpool players who have been at the World Cup have of course got holidays and time off before they’re expected to come back to the club, ready for next season, after recharging their batteries and becoming ready for the fight ahead next season.
“That’s the start for them,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.
“They had their holiday and then they’ll come with us to the USA. They only had three weeks’ holiday so it means they didn’t lose too much.
“We have to see how they present and then we’ll see if they can play in the games. They will be there.
“And then the last group [of World Cup players] comes much later.”
Ahead of the new season, Liverpool will certainly have high objectives, with the Champions League final loss something they want to build on this season and go one step further, along with targeting the Premier League as well.
Mo Salah himself had a stunning season last time out, and will want to personally build on his achievements, with his goal tally something everyone is curious to see if it can be repeated and may happen again – something Liverpool fans will be hoping for and certainly something the player expects.
