Jurgen Klopp has the entire squad available in Austria and on August 29 he will face the Gunners.
Jurgen Klopp insists that Liverpool, winner of the last Premier League, you must be prepared in the best way for the end of the Community Shield, who will play next Saturday, August 29 against Arsenal, champion of the FA Cup.
The German coach is in Austria with the entire Reds squad for a preseason set-up, in which he will play two friendly matches, against Stuttgart and Salzburg, before traveling to Wembley.
“We try to train as often as possible and we do not worry about friendlies, they are simply so that we are ready. We try everything to be prepared for the game against Arsenal, but even after that there are another two weeks,” Klopp said in dialogue with Liverpool’s official site, referring to the start of the new Premier League season.
Liverpool will begin their English league title defense on 12 September, when they face Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United at Anfield.
On the preparatory game against Stuttgart, a team that Klopp was a sympathizer of in his childhood, the coach said: “It’s the team from the area where I grew up. There were a lot of people who supported Bayern Munich and things like that … (but yes) there was only one club, so it was Stuttgart “.
“I loved the shirt, the traditional shirt was always white with a red stripe, a large one. I love the badge and all that. When I was a kid, I was a huge fan. A lot has happened since then, but it is undoubtedly one of my favorite German clubs, of course, “he concluded.
