Wheelies, walking and catching a lift – LFC players have

Bikes have been the method of transport for the Reds as they travel to and from training in Germany, with the players displaying a number of different techniques in the process!

Liverpool are a few days into their Baden-Wurttemberg training camp and cycling has been the order of the day to get to and from sessions through the scenery.

The latest footage has seen the squad navigate their way up a tricky hill, which can’t be much fun in the July heat, and there have been a number of different approaches to tackling the terrain.

Having spent two years on Merseyside, Ibrahima Konate is channelling his inner Scouser by skillfully pulling off a ‘wheelie’ on the way back from training on day three.

Despite taking the prestigious lactate test crown from the departed James Milner, new signing Dominik Szoboszlai had no interest in cycling up the steep hill and instead opted to walk it. A solid choice as far as we’re concerned!

Joe Gomez enlisted some help from a buggy to make the climb, with Dutch pair Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo pictured replicating the move in the latest set of training photos.

Meanwhile, reserve goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher put some to shame by breezing up the incline like it wasn’t there, while the likes of Andy Robertson, Alexis Mac Allister and Joel Matip soldiered on with somewhat more difficulty.

It has been warming to see the group back together for the first time since the curtain closer at Saint Mary’s at the end of May, with Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott soon to complete the set upon their returns later this week.

The Reds will face Karlsruher on Wednesday evening in their first of five scheduled friendlies ahead of the new campaign, with a trip to Singapore to follow later this month.

There are less than four weeks to go before Liverpool kick off their Premier League season at Stamford Bridge on August 13 and it appears the manager is putting his players through their paces to ensure their bodies are ready!
