Jurgen Klopp to give Liverpool players special drinks designed by former swimming champion
Jurgen Klopp is going all out this season.
With pundits backing Liverpool for a legitimate title challenge this term, Klopp is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to preparation.
First, he hired a specialist throw-in coach on a part-time basis to make his side more threatening from those positions.
Then he gave the green light for the club to bring in another goalkeeping coach who would be tasked with developing the younger 'keepers at the club.
And now he has turned his focus to concerns of fatigue during a hectic run of fixtures for the Reds.
Klopp is doing everything in his power to ensure that his players will be at their fittest as they approach a crucial schedule.
The Liverpool manager has reportedly enlisted the help of a former world swimming champion to produce a recovery drink for his players.
According to a report in SportBild, Mark Warnecke has been tasked with producing two sports drinks - one citron and one orange - in the hope of 'significantly speeding up regeneration after exercise'.
At 35, Warnecke won the world title in the 50 m breaststroke at the 2005 World Aquatics Championships and he is the latest unexpected figure to be drafted in by Liverpool this season.
It's reported that Warnecke has agreed to work alongside the club's nutritionist Mona Nemmer to ensure that Klopp's squad is firing on all cylinders.
Liverpool have won every game so far this season but face a grueling run in the next 12 days as they will play Chelsea twice, Napoli and Manchester City.
Those drinks better be good...
