Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has opened up about the difficulties of the COVID-19 lockdown.

The Reds have endured a very difficult 2020-2021 season, after winning the Premier League at a canter last term.

When asked by a Brazilian reporter about the difficulties he and the team have faced in the past 12 months, Klopp explained the circumstances.

Klopp told DAZN Brazil: "I don't think about it too often. Because as long as the situation isn't changing, it makes no sense. When you think about it, yes, it's massive, the difference. Could I have imagined one year ago that my life would change like this and our life would change like this? Not at all.

"I had no idea about it and it's really tough for all of us. And for us as well, really hard. Work helps, obviously, when you can go to work, and will do the stuff you love, that helps, obviously.

"But family is at home and all these things. It's months in lockdown, they can't have their normal life as well. And we all get recharged when we go home, usually.

"You go home and you have family you love, friends you love, and if you see them, they all give you energy and these kind of things. And we all don't have that. And it's really tough.

"I'm not sure how it is in Brazil at the moment, but the situation is obviously very difficult as well. So it's not my problem, it's our problem. And we all have to live it in the moment, we all hope for a proper solution.

"So I actually can't wait for it. We have all the same problem. We have to get through that together."
