Jurgen Klopp will put Liverpool’s players through an intensive two-week pre-season course ahead of the Champions League final against Tottenham.
There is a three-week gap between Liverpool’s final league game and the final in Madrid on June 1.
But Klopp will grant his players just a few days of rest after a gruelling campaign before they step things up again in the fortnight before the clash with Spurs.

There are three weeks between Liverpool’s final league game and the clash with Spurs
‘We have to do a couple of things in preparation for the Champions League [final], media stuff,’ Klopp told the club’s website of the current plans.
‘We have to do that, then the boys will have a couple of days off and then we have two proper weeks as a pre-season for the Champions League final.
‘We will do that, we will play that, [hopefully] win it, come home and then the people [would] get what they deserve.’
Liverpool overturned a three-goal deficit against Barcelona in the semi-final last week to progress to a second successive European final.

Divock Origi’s winner sent Liverpool into the showpiece against Tottenham on June 1
Their league season ended with victory over Wolves on Sunday but it was not enough to see them pip Manchester City to the title.
City’s 4-1 win over Brighton saw them take the crown by a single point.
But Klopp can finally get his hands on some sliverware when the Reds line up against Spurs next month.
