Jürgen Klopp has explained why Liverpool have travelled to Marbella for a training camp ahead of the Champions League final.
The Reds have returned to the venue they first visited back in February, this time for a four-day workout in Spain as they gear up for the clash with Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com after the first session, Klopp said: “It’s about being together, having nothing else to do and not thinking about anything else – and then having a little rest.
“We have a few things to do. We have time to prepare for the game, which we want to do. We have time to recharge our batteries, and that’s what we’ll do. We’re in a very nice surrounding, but we’re not here because of the weather – it was not the reason to say we don’t go to the south because the weather in England has been good as well – but too many things; too many people want too many things from us in the moment.
“Here, we can close the door when we are in the hotel or on the training ground – and that’s the reason we’re here.
“After one little session, which was mainly a recovery, I know already it was the right decision again.”
