A trio of Reds – Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Ben Woodburn – have been out in Los Angeles this week training with football fitness coach Nicky Holender.
Posing for a photo with Jürgen Klopp’s British contingent, Holender published a post on Instagram with a caption thanking the Reds for the session, which included a quick five-a-side game afterwards.
Klopp will likely be heartened to see his boys working hard to keep fit despite being granted leave before pre-season starts in July.
Holender also put former Reds striker Danny Ings through his paces this week, while he has also conducted sessions with Barcelona slayer and Champions League winner Divock Origi.
A glance at the coach’s Instagram shows that he is a massive Tottenham Hotspur fan – pictured alongside Spurs players, he even has a tattoo of White Hart Lane emblazoned on his chest.
Despite suffering defeat in Madrid at the hands of Origi, Holender honourably took to Instagram to congratulate his client: “More than anything I’m extremely proud of how hard this guy has worked the past year!
“This is no overnight success, this has been a hard fought battle which has been won through blood, sweat and tears! Well done @divockorigi.”
Origi, Trent, Ox, and Woodburn, will all be ready to get started with pre-season once the Tranmere Rovers friendly rolls round on 11th July.
After that, the Reds will begin the 2019/20 season with the Community Shield clash against Manchester City on the 4th August.
A Friday night kick-off against Norwich on the 9th August gets our Premier League campaign underway at Anfield, while Spurs will play us for the first time since Madrid on the 26th October.
