Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has rubbished claims his training sessions have been quite intense since he succeeded Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.
The charismatic German claims he has been preparing his team for the busy Christmas schedule and the squad is still under construction but that does not mean he has to force the players to run aimlessly for 100 metres at every training session at Melwood after all, they are not athletes.
“Our game is not that intensive, we are at the start of the development so we
obviously have to do more, but it is not the plan to run 130 kilometres every week,” Klopp said.
“The plan is to run the right moments, play clever so you know which spaces you have to close rather than having to run 100 metres back to your goal.
“We are not here for athletics, we are here to play football. We want to win games, but to start something new you have to invest more which is what we have done until now.”
Liverpool face Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday in the Barclays Premier League.
