But there is little time for players who featured in Russian Federation to rest and then get back to peak fitness because the Premier League kicks off on August 10.
"I guess the World Cup is over, it's a slow news day, so all of a sudden we're jumping all over this Fabinho tapping up Mbappe story as though it has some legs". Tottenham had nine in the semis.
The Reds finished in fourth place in the Champions League last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League. "Everything is now so important in football and we have to collect their bones afterwards, more or less". Henderson and Dejan Lovren, a World Cup finalist with Croatia, are likely to miss the Premier League opener against West Ham United on 12 August due to their late returns.
Fabinho was then asked if he would also ask Mbappe to come to Liverpool, and he said with a smile: "He has already said for this season he will remain at PSG, but I will try slowly to convince him to come over". I knew it would happen. "Jordan (Henderson) needs a holiday, so that means August 5 he will be back".
"That would mean five days training after three weeks' holiday".
However, Trent Alexander-Arnold is likely to feature in the opening match having only played one game for the Three Lions at the global showpiece.
With Trent I have a special agreement. He wants to be in earlier as well. "If we do see him back, it will be a bonus", Klopp said.
"I watched and followed Liverpool last season because the way they played was very exciting - their quick transitions, the counter-attacking, the way they played from the defence to the opposition net, it was fantastic to watch".
