Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock has said that Jurgen Klopp needs to offer rest to the trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino with some rest during the course of the current campaign. The trio managed at least 50 appearances each during the previous season and they have since participated for their respective nations in summer tournaments.
As such, there is the risk of potential burnout as the current season proceeds and Warnock has sent a warning over the same to the Reds boss, he told Sky Sports: “I think Jurgen probably knows that it is going to be a big ask, being in seven competitions at the start of the season. More games again, coming off the back of Copa America and the Africa Cup of Nations. He knows that the players are going to need a rest at some point. He’s spoken openly about finding time during the season to give Mane, Salah, and Firmino more rest because they’re going to need it.”
