Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told The Guardian that Emre Can’s performance against Chelsea proved that his training method works.
Klopp, who was appointed the Liverpool manager in October 2015, works his players hard in training sessions, which are quite intense.
The German has used Can as an example to prove that his training methods work perfectly.
The 22-year-old midfielder started the Premier League game against Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday and played for the entire 90 minutes.
“On the one side we play a little bit too often and it’s too intense training but usually we are in a good shape and you saw against Chelsea that Emre [Can] played again after three weeks off,” Klopp told The Guardian.
“It was hard for him but it was very important for him to get through it. That shows the right training works. That is how it is and that’s why we will train a lot.”
Against Chelsea, Can took three shots, had a pass accuracy of 84%, attempted two dribbles, won 33% of his tackles, and made four interceptions and two blocks.
Klopp has done a remarkable job with the players he inherited from his predecessor Brendan Rodgers, and things can only get better for Liverpool.
A good pre-season, a few good signings, and Liverpool would be in a good position to at least challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League during the 2016-17 campaign.
