Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that the side is preparing for a short break between this season and the next.

Premier League clubs returned to training this Tuesday with the league hoping to end this season next month after the prolonged break enforced by the coronavirus pandemic.

"Today we started with training, good things, not the highest intensity but the boys look in good shape," Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"We don't know exactly how long we have, but we have some time to prepare the rest of this season and already the next season because I don't think there will be a massive break between the two. We don't know exactly but we should prepare for a rather shorter break between the two seasons."

Klopp said that the rest of this season would be like a pre-season for Liverpool. They are 25 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City and the next season is scheduled to start on August 8.

"It's a pre-season for us. We don't know how long and we will not have test games or friendlies," he said.

There were as many as six positive tests for coronavirus across three Premier League clubs on Sunday and Monday, the league had earlier said in a statement on their official website.

The Premier League plans to restart in June after games were stopped due to the global pandemic.
