Too many miles? How far Liverpool will travel this summer

Too many miles? How far Liverpool will travel this summer

Jurgen Klopp will put his players through their paces this summer when his squad take to the air for the gruelling pre-season ahead.

Liverpool rank second in the fewest miles gathered over the past three years, and registered around 2,000 miles over last season.

You can clearly see the number of miles has been reduced since Klopp has arrived at Anfield, compared to when Brendan Rodgers was in charge.

Klopp prefers not travel far during pre-season and this was evident during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

2014-15 season – 18,180 miles

2015-16 season – 21,788 miles

2016-17 season – 12,625 miles

2017-18 season – 14,612 miles

Liverpool have already travelled to Australia for a post-season friendly, beating Sydney FC 3-0 on May 24.

The German boss had previously made a decision not to travel as much, and instead remain in Europe for most of summer.

They will soon embark on more travelling when they face six more opponents this summer.

The Reds will travel to Klopp’s native Germany to face Hertha Berlin on July 29, before participating in the Premier League Asia Trophy Tour, where they will face Crystal Palace in Hong Kong.

If Liverpool overcome the Eagles, they will then play either the winners of Leicester or West Brom in the final.

Klopp will again take his squad back to Germany as they play in the Audi Cup against Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan.

The semi-finals will take place on August 1 and the final and third and fourth place play-off on August 2.
