Jurgen Klopp outlines Liverpool vision in first training session

Published 6 Comments

Jurgen Klopp got his Liverpool reign up and running at their Melwood training complex on Monday morning, but found all but nine first-team stars absent through international duty.

Regardless, the German coach, who arrived on Merseyside on Friday after agreeing a three-year contract, gathered the remaining players to outline his vision for the club.

James Milner, Daniel Sturridge, Lucas, Mamadou Sakho and Philippe Coutinho were just some of the players present at Klopp's first meeting, with – as reported by the Mirror – the German briefly outlining what he will expect from his players.

There were only two coaches present for the training session after Sean O’Driscoll and Gary McAllister left the club. Peter Krawietz arrived alongside Klopp and was also taking his first session with the players while Pep Lijnders, who was part of Brendan Rodgers' backroom staff, also assisted.

Klopp's former right-hand man at Borussia Dortmund, Zeljko Buvac, is expected to join the club in the near future, but has yet to come to an agreement with Anfield officials.

Alberto Moreno, Kolo Toure and Jose Enrique were all included in the hour-long session, but they can expect the real induction to start when a host of players return from international duty later this week.

Klopp will have to brief the likes of Adam Lallana, Simon Mignolet and Martin Skrtel, all of whom are current representing their countries in Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Lallana, Danny Ings and Nathaniel Clyne are expected back on Wednesday after helping England complete a perfect qualifying campaign against Estonia and Lithuania.
