Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is insisting the England stars in his squad are over their flop in the Euro 2016.
Jordan Henderson, Nathaniel Clyne, Daniel Sturridge, James Milner and Adam Lallana, were involved in the Euro 2016 for England. The three lions did not make it past the round of 16.
However, Klopp did not have to motivate his players or boost their morale, as they reported fresh to training.
“They had three weeks’ holiday and they came back pretty well recovered,” the Liverpool boss said.
“Of course we spoke about the European Championship but I told them my view. When we spoke in general about English football in this tournament I thought it was really good.
“Until England left the tournament they didn’t play worse than Portugal, for example, but they didn’t have the time for development Portugal had.
“So it was not that I had to give them back the optimism. They came back [after] three weeks, it’s how national players have to do it, and it was not that disappointing.”
Liverpool play Barcelona on Saturday in their final pre-season friendly, before they get their campaign underway away against Arsenal on August 14.
