JURGEN KLOPP insists Liverpool will stay in their Salzburg training camp “bubble” despite the government adding Austria to its quarantine list.

The FA have exempted the Premier League kings from 14-day isolation rules when they return, meaning they can face FA Cup winners Arsenal in the Community Shield at Wembley next Saturday, August 29.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he has no fears about the safety of their camp and his players need it to prepare quickly

And boss Klopp says the Reds never considered leaving their base early as he has no safety worries and it is more efficient than training back home.

Austria, Croatia and Trinidad and Tobago have been added to the coronavirus at-risk list for UK travellers.

But Klopp told Liverpool‘s website: “Wherever we would be in the moment – England or anywhere else or here in Austria – we would do absolutely everything possible to make sure we create a safe place.

“The big difference for us for the training camp is we have only a short period to prepare. So a training camp makes complete sense for us.

“Since we are here we trained, apart from two days, every day twice, which makes it really intense. We could do that at home but then the boys have to drive home, have to go there.

“A training camp is for us very, very important to focus completely on the preparation. 

“We train a lot, apart from that we speak a lot and we eat the right things, sleep enough and all that stuff, so that’s why we wanted to do it.

“Obviously the world is still in a difficult place in the moment, in Europe as well, so we had to find a solution for the moment when France came on the list. We found that solution.

“We are in our own bubble, do nothing to bring anybody or ourselves in danger and just focus on football.

“In a couple of days, four or five days, we will back in England and finish the preparation and play first really, really important game against Arsenal.”
