WHAT THEY SAID: Klopp told reporters: "That [plan for next season] is the only thing we do [during the break], apart from have a few days off. We do not plan training sessions or things like this. On the player side, I'm positive, I would say. But there are talks, not decisions. We are busy, as you can imagine."
