Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is jealous at Bundesliga players already back in training

The Bundesliga is set to resume behind closed doors later this month, but LaLiga’s hopes of returning soon took a blow yesterday.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp said: “I get envious when I see and hear how players are training in Germany.

“I look at the time when they began again, and how long ago since when they were allowed to train – in groups of two at the very least.

“It is only human for me  to think: ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if we could now do the same?’

“England is a couple of weeks behind Germany. We are still in a real lockdown.

“That is why we are sitting at home despite the sensational weather – which is not normal for England!”

Bundesliga are set for a decision on Wednesday over a possible date to finish the season, which needs to be completed by June 30 because of deals with sponsors and broadcasters.

Players are already back in training and last week the German league body DFL said the clubs would be ready to return on  May 9 — but May 16 or 23 are more realistic.

Spain’s hopes of an early resumption of LaLiga appear to have been ended as the head of the country’s sports body said it is “impossible” to give a return date.

La Liga bosses have already been forced to back away from initial plans for a return to action at some point this month.

And while players have been given the green light to return to some form of training from Monday, that does not mean a restart is in sight.

Irene Lozano, secretary of state for sport and President of Spain’s Higher Sports Council, said: “On May 4, players can resume what we have called basic, individual training.

“We have specified that medical examinations and tests will have to be carried out before training and the club doctors will be responsible for those.

“But in terms of playing matches, we have to see how training can be evolved.

“There will be different phases and at this time it is impossible to set a date on the return of the competition.”
