RETURN: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp with Naby Keita, during their last visit to Marbella

LIVERPOOL will train in Marbella before their second Champions League final in two years, it has emerged.

On May 20 Jurgen Klopp’s side will jet out for seven days in their third warm weather break on the Costa del Sol this season.

The Liverpool boss had considered Mallorca before settling on Marbella, where the Reds trained a year ago, during their last European cup bid.

That push for the title saw Liverpool lose 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev, with Gareth Bale twice getting on the scoresheet for Los Blancos.

This time the Merseyside club, who finished the Premier League campaign on 97 points, one behind champions Manchester City, meet Tottenham in Madrid on June 1.

Both English teams will compete for their first silverware of the season at the Spanish capital’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

It comes after the sides produced two historic comebacks in the competition’s semi-finals last week, as Spurs beat Ajax 3-2 and Liverpool bounced back to hit Barcelona 4-0.

Liverpool, who claimed their fifth Champions League title in 2005 under Spaniard Rafael Benitez, will be hoping the Marbella break can help them produce the goods once again.

The Marbella Football Center in San Pedro is a favourite for Liverpool, the players previously having been spotted cycling and completing training drills at the ground.

Meanwhile, Klopp’s squad have been known to let their hair down at celebrity haunt, the La Sala restaurant in Puerto Banus.
