Following third-round exits in both domestic cup competitions this season, Liverpool have been able to fully concentrate on their Premier League title challenge  At the end of January, they had an 11-day break and spent part of it enjoying the sun in Dubai  Upon their return, they drew with Leicester and West Ham before a much-needed win against Bournemouth  Now, Jurgen Klopp’s side have 10 days off before the return of the Champions League and the visit of Bayern Munich  And this time, they’re in Marbella.  On Tuesday, clips emerged of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back in first-team training for the first time  This morning, though, it was Jurgen Klopp in action that got Liverpool fans excited  Klopp teamed up with Sadio Mane in a game of head-tennis against Roberto Firmino and assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders  Liverpool’s official Twitter account shared a clip of the head tennis match, with Klopp and Mane winning both the points KLOPP PLAYS HEAD-TENNIS WITH MANE  Take a look:  And Liverpool fans were impressed that Klopp still looks pretty decent – despite admitting he wasn’t ever very good  Klopp played for Mainz in the second-tier of German football for almost his whole career and explained how his love for the game made him continue  “I was very average. I was really quick and a good header but that was it. Unfortunately, the ball spent most of the time on the ground and that was not my biggest strength,” said Klopp  “I loved the game too much to stop playing, which would not have been too bad for most of my teams I played in    “I enjoyed playing very much but I was not very good – that’s how it is.”  Maybe that’s why he impressed during a game of head-tennis – because the ball was never on the ground
