While some Liverpool players will be representing their countries at the upcoming Qatar World Cup in November and December, the rest of the Reds squad will travel to Dubai for a mid-season training camp. Because their respective countries failed to qualify for the tournament, Mo Salah and Luis Diaz will not be traveling to Qatar, but will instead remain in peak condition with the rest of Jurgen Klopp’s squad. Following the conclusion of the tournament, Premier League action will resume on Boxing Day, and Pep Lijnders explained why this season will be very different from the last. “A lot of our players will go to the World Cup, so we will go to Dubai with the players who stay,” assistant coach Pep Lijnders confirmed (as quoted by The Athletic). “The season is disrupted. The team that handles this well will undoubtedly have a better chance. “With 63 games, last season felt like a marathon.” This season feels like a sprint, a break, and then another sprint. So it’s critical to get off to a fast start, which Dubai must do — we’ll get back on track after the World Cup.” (Video) Carragher slams Manchester United with a quick retort to Neville’s x-rated remark. Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted It will be strange for the season to be disrupted by a major International tournament, but the club is eager to work around it. It is believed that Dubai was chosen as the best location for the camp because it is close to Qatar, which means that once the players competing in the World Cup are knocked out, they can easily rejoin the Reds to continue their club season. It is expected that eight to ten Liverpool players will compete in this year’s World Cup. Let’s hope they all have a good time in Qatar and return healthy and ready to attack the second half of the season in late December. The Empire of the Kop Podcast #56: Nunez silences his detractors!
