The German manager will have special preparations for his team with two weeks to be ready for the match against Tottenham Hotspur.

On June 1st, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will play in the UEFA Champions League Final in Madrid, Spain.

And with two weeks to go, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is preparing a special “pre-season” program for his footballers to be ready for their second Champions League Final in a row.

“We have to do a couple of things in preparation for the Champions League [final], media stuff,” Klopp told the club’s official website.

“We have to do that, then the boys will have a couple of days off and then we have two proper weeks as a pre-season for the Champions League final.”

“We will do that, we will play that, [hopefully] win it, come home and then the people [would] get what they deserve,” he added.

“Div showed up in a brilliant way, obviously, I’m very happy for him. Ox is coming back, Naby will then finally be there, Rhian Brewster will come, all the young boys if they want to go for it.”

“And the established boys can make next steps as well – imagine Trent and Robbo last year [compared to] this year. They were already good last year but it’s another level. Millie is still making steps,” he continued.

“So it’s really cool to work with this group. And we will go again, I’m pretty sure.”
