Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have fully supported the Premier League’s decision to suspend games, but the players are keen to learn what will happen next.

Melwood has been closed for the next two weeks and players have been told to stay home during a period that was meant to be the highlight of their season.

Each player has their own fitness regime supplied to them by the club and the playing and coaching staff have been warned the shutdown could be extended.

The squad are said to be feeling ‘surreal’ about the shutdown and the sudden halt in their march towards becoming champions.
