According to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, the training camp in Evian is very important as the team prepares for the 2019-2020 English Premier League season.

Liverpool’s season is set to start next Sunday, as the team will play against Manchester City for the Community Shield.

And for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp this is the most important week of all season.

“It’s massively important and we are looking forward to it,” he told Sky Sports.

“Good results in the pre-season help to build confidence but that’s not the most important thing.”

“The most important thing is that you build the physical skills for a long, long season because we have to, pretty much, prepare only for the games,” he explained.

“There’s not a lot of time to train.”

The manager continued saying: “We had to do intense sessions in the first three weeks. We played games in different circumstances.”

“It’s always been clear Evian would be the most important week of the season, and we have five days after City before Norwich.”

“Everybody is coming on time on their flights,” he added.

“From this afternoon, (Xherdan) Shaqiri, Naby (Keita), Roberto (Firmino), Mohamed (Salah) and Alisson will be in training.”

“Sadio (Mane) comes in next week. We can talk an hour about [international scheduling] but it changes nothing so it’s a waste of time,” he concluded.
