Liverpool squad get their Spanish training camp underway

Liverpool landed in the La Manga resort just off the coast of south-eastern Spain yesterday evening and have begun their 4 day training camp this morning.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his staff has taken 27 members of the Liverpool squad away from Melwood.  As well as the long term injured players - both Dejan Lovren and Marko Grujic were also left back in Liverpool to continue their rehabiliation.

The team are commuting from the team hotel to La Manga club via bike - the sports complex is a popular destination for Premier League clubs and also the England international side in recent years.

This morning the reds held a closed session away from the prying eyes of the media but did release some images to their social media accounts.

The club have taken the trip to deal with the 16 day absence of football games following the win over Spurs.  The next game will be on Monday 27th February when the reds travel to the home of the current champions Leicester City.

Former striker John Aldridge told LFC that the trip could be the perfect tonic

"They'll have a few days off, regroup, it's great for morale and team spirit.

"He can work on some finer things that maybe we've fallen short of, especially in the last month or two, some fresh ideas.

"I think it's a really good idea."

LFC 27 man squad in La Manga: Jordan Henderson, Sheyi Ojo, James Milner, Sadio Mane, Kevin Stewart, Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Manninger, Adam Lallana, Ragnar Klavan, Divock Origi, Conor Masterson, Simon Mignolet, Georginio Wijnaldum, Alberto Moreno, Nathaniel Clyne, Harry Wilson, Emre Can, Connor Randall, Joe Gomez, Lucas Leiva, Yan Dhanda, Ben Woodburn, Loris Karius, Roberto Firmino.
