[Pep Lijnders says Liverpool have to earn everything all over again] The period with the small groups was to prepare our boys for a ‘normal’ training week; from the first day, we tried to give them a mental landscape. I never thought you could do so much with only four players, we made it as specific possible. But to be honest, it was all about energy, energy and energy again, because I really think in the end energy wins from each tactical idea. Combining both you become unstoppable! It’s great to have them all back, with their jokes, their attitude and their character. This is one of the most special groups of players we will ever work with. But we will have to prove ourselves again and earn everything again. If we all stay humble, that’s the first step. If we all stay hungry and passionate for the ball, it will be step two till step 20

We have intense sessions … our identity is intensity! Our identity is unpredictability. It’s about dedicated specific team training. We control the timings. This is so, so important. All the training days are connected. The relationship between the training days makes it so that we can play in our way, a quality game of football and at the same time we reduce the injury risk. We train each day in the highest intensity, in the highest concentration and with full freedom to attack. It’s how Einstein said it: logic gets you from A to B, imagination will get you everywhere. That’s hopefully where we stay different. A quality game will stimulate this aspect and that creates development. If we showed one thing in the last seasons, it is that we always made the next step. Let’s try again
