Robbo: Training camp can make us stronger for run-in



Robbo: Training camp can make us stronger for run-in

Andy Robertson believes Liverpool’s forthcoming training camp arrives at a good time to re-energise the squad for the season’s run-in.

The Reds returned to winning ways on Saturday with a comprehensive 3-0 defeat of Bournemouth at Anfield but are not in action again until Bayern Munich visit in the Champions League on February 19.

Jürgen Klopp, his staff and the players will use the gap between fixtures for a series of training sessions in warmer conditions abroad this week.

And after a period of troublesome injuries and illnesses, Robertson feels it is a timely opportunity to build up fitness levels for the challenges to come.

He told after the victory over Bournemouth: “We are a bit of a wounded squad at the minute, but the lads are coming back. Trent [Alexander-Arnold] came back, which was fantastic to see.

“Gini has been struggling all week. He came in and was unbelievable for someone who has been unwell all week. And it was nice to see Hendo back on the bench as well.

“We have got a good 10 days now until Bayern Munich. We go off for the training camp and hopefully we will welcome a few more back because the stronger the squad we have got then the better chance we have got of winning games.

“That’s key to it. We have got a nice 10-day break and I’m sure Trent will be up to speed, and Hendo and Gini. And hopefully we have a couple more come back and then we have got an exciting run-in.”

The left-back added: “It’s good to go away. It’s going to be hard week, we already know that – full of training and things like that.

“But it’s what we enjoy doing. Hopefully the weather is nice, it’s always a bit nicer training in the sun than it is the rain.

“It will be good to get away, then we come back fully fired into the Bayern Munich game, which will hopefully be another special night here.”
