Klopp speaks on Jordan Henderson injury
The Liverpool gaffer has come out and given a statement regarding the injury. He said :
“Hendo will be part of parts of the training today. He will start with warming up, maybe some passing, maybe some rondos, we will see as a first step.
“He has absolutely no muscle issues. It is all fine, he is not injured anymore, so now we have to make sure he can make the next step. What that means for the weekend, I don’t know.
“I was in close contact with Gareth Southgate and it is clear he will use the time with the national team for getting match fit because Hendo had four or five days of normal pre-season before he played the first game for us because of the situation we were in. Then played against Chelsea and got this little injury, which was really not serious.
