Klopp Confirms Firmino and Alisson Will Return in Late July
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Alisson and Roberto Firmino will return for pre-season later this month when the team undergoes a training camp in France.
The Reds are currently on tour in the US at the moment, but Alisson and Firmino are on their holidays after their Copa América exploits.
Both were part of Brazil’s winning squad and only finished their seasons on July 7 th . Mo Salah will return with them after playing in the African Cup of Nations for Egypt.
“Mo and the Brazilians will come for Evian," Klopp told the club's website. "It means then we have nearly a week until City [in the Community Shield], a strong 12 days until Norwich and then 15 or 16 days until Chelsea [in the Super Cup].
“The good thing is, when you have a short break you don't lose a lot. They needed three weeks and so we told them [to take it], but they train now again already.
"I would have preferred it if they had come back after a week, but that would make absolutely no sense! So, [they have] these three weeks and then we will have them here for pre-season."
