Former Wales coach Raymond Verheijen has taken to Twitter to criticise the training methods of Chelsea and Liverpool managers Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp.

The two sides are currently in the midst of their pre-season routine as they look to build up their fitness ahead of the new campaign.

Both managers are known to favour a focus on intense physical conditioning in pre-season as it helps the style they want their teams to play.

So far there have been no major injuries for either side, but Verheijen has taken to Twitter to criticise both managers, claiming they are destroying players with their out-dated methods.

Verheijen’s views are certainly interesting given that Liverpool’s players have largely praised the high intensity method employed by Klopp.

They have openly admitted that it is tough but the improvement in their conditioning was notable across last season because it was embraced. 

Of course, this is not the first time the former Wales coach has criticised the Reds manager, having done so last season, and it will be interesting to see if he is proved right in the next two weeks.
