Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he and his coaching staff are preparing to get creative to help the team prepare for a possible return to Premier League football.
The Reds will be back at their training base Melwood on Wednesday, but will only be allowed to engage in small group training to follow the government protocol with regards to staying safe amid the coronavirus crisis.
There are some worries that players will struggle to adapt to the intensity of the Premier League after such a long time off, but speaking to Liverpool's TV channel Klopp insisted his squad are looking in good shape, and that he and his staff are prepared to adapt to the new form of training.
"When we start, it goes really again for everything," Klopp said. "The competition will make the intensity. You will see, the intensity will go up.
"From a physical point of view, the boys are in a good shape, they could run a marathon probably. But we have to start getting used to the pitch, football boots and balls again; that’s a big challenge these football-specific things, make all the difference.
"The boys are fit but the moment you start playing football, you can see how different it is. That’s what we have to get through and we will get through it."
"We do whatever we have to do to stay safe, also keep other people safe, and still be able to play football."
With the Bundesliga returning behind closed doors at the weekend there is growing optimism that the Premier League could follow suit, and games could start again as early as next month.
Liverpool need just two more wins from their remaining nine games to secure their first ever Premier League title after picking up a staggering 82 points from their 29 matches so far.
