Amid the suspension, Liverpool players, like other clubs, have been training individually at their homes, however, there are some players that attend the Melwood due to having injuries.
One of the players is Alisson Becker, who has a hip injury. He has explained the routine which allows him to continue his rehabilitation at Melwood.
“The club’s guidance is that everyone stays at home,” said the Brazilian. “In my case it’s a little bit different, because I have an injury.
“Thank goodness, it wasn’t a very serious injury, but every injury needs care and I have continued the treatments at the training centre. I don’t have any contact with my teammates, as everyone is in their homes.
“The only contact I have is with the physio and the goalkeeper trainer doing some specific rehabilitation work.
“And within these situations, we also take all the necessary precautions for all recommendations, such as hand hygiene, not touching the face, not touching the mouth, nose, eyes.
“We also try to talk at a distance. Besides them, I have no contact with anyone else.
“My routine is very defined. I leave the house, go to the training centre, finish the treatment, come home and stay at home in this moment of self isolation.”
Other players who have also been attending Melwood are Xherdan Shaqiri, Nathaniel Clyne and Yasser Larouci.
