Liverpool’s Andy Robertson has revealed the intensity of the club’s training sessions under Jurgen Klopp.
The European champions have begun the new season in impressive fashion, maintaining a 100 per cent record over the first four fixtures of the new season to sit top of the Premier League going into the first international break of the campaign.
Liverpool manager Klopp has integrated his famed gegenpressing style since arriving at Anfield nearly four years ago, and Robertson has revealed that high demands each day in training have been key to his side’s success.
“The standard is high and that’s why we get the best out of each other on a Saturday – because every single day we demand more,” he told the Scottish FA.
“The manager is the one that dictates that, and his staff behind him. They don’t let us drop even one per cent in training and that’s why in a game we’re usually ready to go.
“Of course we’ll have bad games and we’ll have off games, that’s only natural. But it’s not from a lack of trying and it’s not from a lack of effort because in training we put in the distances we need and the work we need, the effort and everything that goes along with it.
“Then we’re the best prepared to go into games. That’s what you need to be a top team.”
