Liverpool stars left broken by Jurgen Klopp's punishing preseason regime

Preseason is famously the time of year most dreaded by footballers, and Jurgen Klopp's second summer preparation at Liverpool is getting to be too much for his players.

As Liverpool get ready for a season competing on multiple fronts, Klopp is busy getting his players into the correct physical shape to carry out the energetic, high-pressing game that has become the German coach's trademark.

The majority of Liverpool's players have been back at Melwood for preseason training since last Wednesday, and some of them are feeling the effects already.

Indeed, Sheyi Ojo has posted pictures on his Snapchat of Joe Gomez, Divock Origi and Georginio 'Gini' Wijnaldum taking a nap after some testing double training sessions.

It's almost certainly a better way to recover than taking an ice bath.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
