Jurgen Klopp is in absolutely no doubt that Jordan Henderson will be fit to play in Euro 2016 with England.
The Liverpool midfielder suffered knee ligament damage last month when facing Borussia Dortmund and was initially ruled out for six weeks, but he has defied expectations and could even feature in the Europa League final next week.
When asked about Henderson’s prospects of playing in Euro 2016, Klopp said: “Yesterday he trained. He looked good. 100 per cent he will be fit for European Championships.”

Henderson himself has targeted the cup final, telling Sky Sports at the launch of Liverpool’s new kit: “I’m hoping it will be sooner rather than later. I’m doing everything I can to get back fit as quickly as possible.
“I’ve had a good week so far, so hopefully I can have another good week and see where I am at the end of that. I’m being very positive, I’m working very hard and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.
“That [Europa League final] would be the main priority for me. It would be huge just to be involved and I’d love to be a part of that if I could.
“At the same time I’ve got to make sure that my knee is right because I don’t want to do myself further damage.”
