Jordan Henderson is confident Liverpool will reap both physical and psychological benefits from their mid-season training camp in La Manga as they prepare to head into the final 13 games of 2016-17.
The Reds arrived in Spain on Wednesday evening for the four-day trip and began drills the following morning.
Jürgen Klopp has described the camp as a ‘second pre-season’, with his side not back in action until February 27 when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium – and Henderson is confident Liverpool will profit from their brief stay abroad.
He told Liverpoolfc.com in La Manga: “Everything has gone smoothly so far. There was a light session on Thursday morning because we’d had a few days off, so it was to get our legs going again, and then it was a tough session in the afternoon.
“We’re looking forward to the next few days, spending time together as a team properly, training and doing one or two other things as well. It’ll be good for us going into the last part of the season.
“It’s a different environment and you’re with each other non-stop because you’re not going home; you’re with each other 24/7, so I think that’ll only benefit us as a team going into the last part of the season. We can get a lot of work in on the training pitch on what we need to improve on, and everyone is looking forward to it.
