Klopp drafts Liverpool to-do list as Nunez and Robertson face pre-season challenges

Liverpool have spent the last few weeks on the beach and Jürgen Klopp and his players hope they will benefit from an extended break to rest and recuperate. The Reds finished fifth in the Premier League last season, but it wasn’t enough and they need to improve next season.

The majority of Klopp’s players returned to Merseyside after a break this week, with the exception of two recent European Under-21 champions Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones. Between now and the start of the new season in August, the German coach will have to train and fine-tune his players on the training ground.

With pre-season in full swing behind the scenes at Liverpool, Klopp has plenty of tactical work to do before his side’s Premier League opener against Chelsea. Considering what he has to work on this summer, what are three things he might rank high on Klopp’s to-do list as he advances into preseason camp?

Improve Darwin Nunez’ defense

Darwin Nunez has all the potential in the world and it explains why Liverpool paid a club-record transfer fee for his services just 12 months ago. His debut for Merseyside has been decent, but there is room for improvement, especially in the defensive side of the game.

Late last season, Klopp described the new striker as a ‘racehorse’ on the pitch, but he didn’t mean it as a straight compliment. Nunez is full of intensity and aggression, but he has to learn to capitalize on his tendencies as Liverpool’s famous press leader.

“It’s really important to defend the center against Fulham because Joao Parinha is there and he’s a bridge, but he [Núñez] It was like a racehorse,” said Klopp. “Good luck for everyone, good luck. We were open so we struggled a bit. Other than that, he played a really good game.”
