Liverpool’s first-team training facility has reopened after a 48-hour closure due to a Coronavirus outbreak among players and staff.
With assistant manager Peter Krawietz in charge of the available players, preparations for Sunday’s FA Cup third-round clash against League One club Shrewsbury will resume.
Krawietz will also handle pre-match media duties, holding a press conference on Saturday at 1 p.m (UK Time).
Because the AXA complex’s first-team portion was unaffected, Liverpool’s youth teams were able to continue practicing, and a number of the U23s are anticipated to play against the Shrews.
By the weekend, manager Jurgen Klopp and players Alisson Becker, Joel Matip, and Roberto Firmino will have completed their isolation periods, though it is unclear whether any of them will be present at Anfield for the match.
In a statement, Liverpool said: “After consultation with the relevant public health authority, operations have now resumed within the first-team set-up at the training ground.”
We can confirm the first-team facilities at AXA Training Centre have now reopened.
