Jurgen Klopp hopes the international break is “long enough” to see Jordan Henderson return to fitness in time for crucial Premier League fixtures.
Henderson hobbled off during the first half of Liverpool’s 3-1 triumph over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening, that saw the Anfield outfit progress to the Champions League quarter-finals.
And although he is unsure on the exact length of Henderson’s injury, he hopes to have him back after the international break – but has ruled him out of their Premier League clash with Fulham at the weekend..
“With Hendo we don’t know – it’s serious enough to rule him out for the weekend,” Klopp said.
“The international break will hopefully be long enough to bring him back.
“It is to do with his ankle. It’s the best it can be but still not good enough, it’s okay though.”
On the fitness of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain“We have to see if Naby can train today, he’ll come in later for checks and it was positive so hopefully it stays positive when he goes outside.
“Ox will be 100% fit after the international break”.
