Liverpool announced that it will spend its preparatory camp for the middle of the season, during the period of the World Cup next November, in Dubai, and among the camp will be its players who do not participate in the World Cup in Qatar, most notably Egyptian star Mohamed Salah and Brazilian Luis Diaz.
Only 10 players participate from the Liverpool list in the World Cup, while the rest of their country’s teams are absent from participating in the global football wedding.
“Many of the key players will be with their national teams. The rest need a preparatory camp to be in the best preparation for the resumption of the season after the World Cup,” said club assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders.
Lijnders added: “The last season was a long and continuous marathon. As for the current season, it is in instalments. We pull, then stop and then pull again. The many international stops make it a season that requires a lot of preparation to maintain the pattern. I think that whoever prepares better and takes advantage of the stops. In preparatory and hospital camps, he will be the hero in the end.
