Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool players might be in for a shock when the Premier League resumes in empty stadiums, because they’ll have nowhere to hide from his shouts.
And the Reds boss says he won’t be going easy on his players – even Mo Salah – despite their close proximity to the title, which they could secure at Everton if Manchester City lose to Arsenal on June 17.
“There will be a few tough games waiting for us, and we will not have the help from the crowd,” Klopp told BBC 5Live.
“But no team will have the help from the crowd, so it is the same situation for all of us, that’s why I’m not worried about it.
“We tried to simulate the situation to get used to it. We tried to train in the stadium, play internal friendlies that we just get used to it.
“Because when I shout usually in a game, ‘Mo, do this or that’, they will probably get a shock because it’s that loud.
“We all need to get used to it, but that’s not a problem. If only we would play without a crowd and all the rest would be like before then massive disadvantage, so it’s completely normal.”
With some suggestions that Liverpool might not be able to play at Anfield, Klopp added that he’s so keen to see his team in action that he’d even like to see them in outer space.
“I hope we have some home games, for us it’s only four and then five away, so we will see where we play,” he added.
“I play wherever you want, if it’s on Mars, I don’t care to be honest. But now we are here, and it looks like everyone will have home and away games, so it will be nice for us as well.”
