Football is back on the pitch but behind closed doors, with its return Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is overjoyed, claimed that it is still a “wonderful game” without even fans.
After the coronavirus suspension, Bundesliga is the first European league to resume with many other leagues in Europe aiming to follow their German example.
Klopp stated each squad would be in the same position after a possible lay-off of three months or more and admitted that players could not be at their peak if football returns to England.
Liverpool manager told BBC’s Football Focus, “Look, football is a game where we have the same situation pretty much. We’re playing against another team,”
“We don’t have to be at our peak all-time, we have to be at our peak because with the other teams this is almost the same scenario,” Klopp added.
“Whenever we start we’re going to have the same time to prepare and our job, as always, is to use the situation you’re in. We’re going to be in as good a shape as we can and that’s what we need to use then.”
“We all began playing football without supporters and we loved this game not because of the stadium atmosphere,” Klopp ended.
