Mohamed Salah arrived back at Melwood for training with his team-mates today and supporters couldn’t help but point out several large cracks in his car’s windscreen. The Egyptian was pictured arriving at the training ground on Wednesday morning, ready to get back on the pitch.
The forward has not officially kicked a ball since the Reds were last in action against Atletico Madrid on March 12.
Liverpool did train in the days after that match but quickly called an end to all footballing operations at the club following the outbreak of COVID-19.
Jurgen Klopp was delighted to welcome back his players and coaching staff to their West Derby base after a lengthy and frustrating lay-off.
The Reds are just two wins away from being crowned champions, ending a 30-year wait for the Premier League title.
“The sessions were perfectly organised, it is all about football.
“It’s little things, getting used to the pitch, boots and ball, turns, passes, half-passes, softer passes, running, little accelerations and stuff like that.
“Little finishes, not proper shooting but little finishes, all this stuff.
“It looked really, really good, I have to say. If anybody was worried from our fans, you don’t have to – the boys are in good shape.”
Klopp has been making regular checks on his players throughout lockdown and ensuring they have kept fitness levels ticking over.
The players were handed specialist training programmes to follow throughout quarantine from the comfort of their own home.
Yoga sessions via Zoom were central to keeping spirits high, although a WhatsApp group was also set up for all the players and staff at Melwood.
Liverpool are awaiting the chance to return to action next month but all 20 Premier League clubs are now welcoming their players back from their respective breaks.
