Jurgen Klopp has had not problem laying down the law with his new players in his first week at Liverpool.

According to the Telegraph the German  has put an end to the wives and girlfriends of footballers coming to training, and also players will now have to ‘earn’ days off rather than have them built into their working week.

Reports suggest the German is unhappy with players having too many distractions at the club’s training facility and is keen to bring back a working culture to the club that has, in his eyes, been diluted over the last number of years,

“The German has informed his players they must see Melwood solely as their ‘headquarters of football’. It will not be a place where an assortment of hanger-ons delivering the latest smartphones can stroll in or out at a whim.”

It seems the fun is over for the Liverpool players.
