Liverpool’s Andy Robertson believes The Reds’ 10-day break before facing Bayern Munich came at just the right time as the squad headed to Marbella for a warm-weather training camp.
Robertson gave his thoughts to the official LFC site and said:
“We are a bit of a wounded squad at the minute, but the lads are coming back. Trent [Alexander-Arnold] came back, which was fantastic to see.
“Gini has been struggling all week. He came in [against Bournemouth] and was unbelievable for someone who has been unwell all week. And it was nice to see Hendo back on the bench as well.
“Hopefully, we will welcome a few more back [during training camp] because the stronger the squad we have got then the better chance we have got of winning games.
“I’m sure Trent will be up to speed, and Hendo and Gini. And hopefully we have a couple more come back and then we have got an exciting run-in.”
The Scottish international captain admitted that the Marbella trip was never going to be an easy-going holiday. The Reds went to Spain to get in even better shape and build up endurance levels that may well stand to them as the season enters its final weeks.
“It’s good to go away. It’s going to be a hard week, we already know that – full of training and things like that.
“But it’s what we enjoy doing. Hopefully, the weather is nice, it’s always a bit nicer training in the sun than it is the rain.
“It will be good to get away, then we come back fully fired into the Bayern Munich game, which will hopefully be another special night here.”
