Former Wales assistant manager Raymond Verheijen has slammed Jurgen Klopp’s training methods in a Twitter outburst.

Verheijen, who was Gary Speed’s assistant between 2011 and the time of the manager’s passing, said doing too much too soon during pre-season destroys players, adding that he believes the methods used to be “outdated”.

We see this two ways – Klopp needs his players to be incredibly fit in order to comply with his in-game tactics and demands, but there is also a fair argument that says any overworked body will be more injury prone.

In fact, Verheijen himself said last Christmas that Klopp’s players would suffer an injury crisis in the New Year – a prediction that was proved to be correct.

We had 11 players injured in mid-January, with six of them going down with hamstring issues.

Here are his Twitter comments in full – what do you think?
