Liverpool will play one extra pre-season game before new PL season

Jurgen Klopp expects to play one extra pre-season game after the new season begins.

The Reds will be facing Manchester City tomorrow evening at the King Power Stadium for the Community Shield.

They start their 2022/23 Premier League season by traveling to Fulham on August 6th.

Liverpool had a very short pre-season and manager Jurgen Klopp feels his squad are under-prepared.

The German coach intends to play one more friendly after the Fulham game next Saturday.

“It is a very important game (on Saturday) but the situation is we still have to prepare for a season and we cannot ignore that,” said Klopp.

“So we have to extend our pre-season into the season. We play on Saturday against City and we play on Sunday a pre-season friendly against Strasbourg.

“Then we play Fulham and the next day we play another game, just so that we can extend our pre-season.

“That’s what we have to do because from mid-August on I think we play every three days again, so there’s no time for training.”
