It’s always fascinating to watch Liverpool train in length.
Firstly, it shows the intensity at which Jurgen Klopp and his staff demand the players work.
Secondly, you see the skill and technique of players at close-quarters. It sounds stupid, but professional footballers are unbelievably good!
This example we’ve shared is during the warm-weather trip to Tenerife, and features many squad and younger players alongside the likes of Dejan Lovren, James Milner and Joel Matip – automatic starters in our first-XI…
Milner scores a wonderful goal here he blasts into the top corner, but his overall play is faultless, too. He’s an auxiliary left-back, but his dedication in training (remember, he’d likely be on international duty if he hadn’t retired), is exemplary and a great example to our younger players.
