More than six days from the start of Liverpool’s pre-season, Jurgen Klopp‘s squad has seen the remaining senior figures make their return from their summer break.
After landing in Bangkok, Liverpool were given a heroes’ welcome from a sea of Thai Reds who had congregated hours before the team touched down.
And after a brief stop at the hotel, the 37-man squad made their way to their first training session, one to that will get the body moving after a long journey to the Far East.

It ensured Roberto Firmino was reunited with his national compatriots after their extended break following their international exploits in South Korea and Japan.
The session was not only the first for Alisson, Fabinho and Nunez this summer but also Salah, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita, Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Thiago, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota.
Liverpool will have a busy schedule while in Thailand and Singapore but will be intent on getting the most out of their training time, which Klopp has admitted could see tired legs during their friendlies.
“We brought here 37 players, so we have all generations here and we have to use all of them because the boys who were on international duty in the summer only arrived today pretty much and they cannot play too long,” Klopp told the press after arriving in Bangkok.
“But we will try to give them a few minutes as well, so it will be really exciting.”
