Liverpool announce 25-man travelling squad for post-Porto training camp

A 25-man Liverpool squad will head to Marbella for a training camp following Wednesday night’s Champions League last-16 tie with Porto.

The Reds take on their Portuguese opponents in the first leg of their knockout clash in midweek, with their next fixture coming 10 days later at home to West Ham.

Provided a lengthy break ahead of the Premier League run-in, Jurgen Klopp and his backroom staff are looking to take advantage.

The club announced the squad heading out for warm-weather training on Tuesday afternoon, including Nathaniel Clyne, who is yet to feature this season due to injury.

Youngsters Kamil Grabara and Ben Woodburn are included, while Joe Gomez will also travel as he works his way back from a knee injury.

Emre Can will also fly out to Portugal, but the midfielder is unavailable against Porto as he observes a one-match European suspension.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds will spend four days in Marbella, travelling to Spain on Thursday before heading back to Merseyside on Monday for further preparations.

Klopp has regularly utilised breaks in the season’s schedule to take a break from Melwood, including a short rest period in Dubai last month.

And the hope will be Liverpool return refreshed ahead of another crucial league clash on February 24.
