Jurgen Klopp says he was like a child on the "first day of school" when Liverpool returned to non-contact training on Wednesday.
The frontline teams voted unanimously to accelerate their return to action at Monday's general assembly, allowing players to train in limited capacity as part of phase one of the "Project Restart".
Klopp was delighted to return to work in Liverpool's uniform.

"I woke up even earlier than usual and then realized it was my first day," said Klopp Liverpool website.
“It felt like the first day at school – for me, it was 46 years ago, but it must have been similar.
"I put on my uniform again – and for the right reason, to go to training."

Klopp added: "We don't know exactly how much time we have, but we have time to prepare for the remainder of this season and the next one, because I think there will not be a big break between the two.
"It is a pre-season for us. We do not know for how long and we will not have test or friendly matches.
"Maybe we can organize it between us when we can, but it won't be the same as other pre-seasons."
