Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is delighted to be reunited with five players following a difficult start to pre-season.
Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will join up with their team-mates in Switzerland on Monday after being given extra time off following international duty, and both Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have recovered from injury.
Liverpool have suffered three defeats and a draw in pre-season – the latest friendly a 3-0 loss to Napoli in Edinburgh – and face Lyon on Wednesday before the FA Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday.
When asked about their trip to Switzerland, Klopp said: “It’s massively important. I found out a couple of seconds ago that everybody is fine, the boys are coming in on time with their flights. So this afternoon we will have Shaq, Naby, Bobby, Mo, Alisson in training, which is great.
“We have a game on Wednesday and they can play 10, 20, 30 minutes, 30 probably. Apart from that we have to prepare for the game on Sunday, the first proper game of the new season.”
