No Liverpool player will be forced to train if he does not feel safe to do so, manager Jurgen Klopp said on Wednesday after the Premier League leaders first training session for more than nine weeks. Kloop expected all his players to show up but they were under no pressure said after the first training session to Sky Sports television.
The Premier League has been suspended since March because of Coronavirus pandemic but recently club have started training in ground.
“It’s their choice so that’s clear,” said the German, who had two more training groups later on Wednesday.
“I said before the session ‘You are here on free will. Usually, you sign a contract and then you have to be in when I tell you. In this case, if you don’t feel safe, you don’t have to be here. There are no restrictions, no punishment, nothing. So it’s their own decision and we will respect that 100 percent. The boys are fine. We would never put anybody in danger to do what we want to do. Yes, we love football, and yes, it’s our job but it’s not more important than our lives or the lives of other people.” he added.
Before the suspension the club Liverpool is at top position in points table and they are likely to be a winner and Manchester City is just behind them. When the season return, Liverpool’s ultimate goal is to secure the title.
