The club gave more details through its official channels, after a conference given by the German coach. “I can’t reveal names, because we still have to go through all the processes, get a proper PCR, and all that sort of thing. Everything will be reflected in our template”, Assured the DT.
“So far, we have three new COVID-19 cases on the team and more on the staff. The situation is not good at the moment”Added Jürgen Klopp, who will have to continue working with the athletes available to face Chelsea, for the 21st date of the Premier League.
Precisely, the coach was also consulted about the possibility that Liverpool present a request for postponement of the match, at the beginning of 2022. “We haven’t thought about that yet, but we don’t know. We have never had an outbreak like this with 10; 15 or 20 players, and every day they increase”, He highlighted.
“Testing is being done more and more often, and like I said before, this feels like a lottery. In the morning you stop there and just wait for the result.
