Thiago Alcantara fitness update – Liverpool FC
Jürgen Klopp has revealed there is ‘a good chance’ Thiago Alcantara can be involved in Saturday’s Champions League final.
The Liverpool midfielder is likely to train with his teammates on Thursday afternoon as he recovers from the injury that forced him off in the first half versus Wolverhampton Wanderers last Sunday.
And Klopp is hopeful Thiago can be ready for this weekend’s European Cup decider against Real Madrid in Paris.
Asked for an update on the No.6’s chances of featuring, the manager said today: “I only met him now inside… a good chance. So he will be training this afternoon.
“He did some stuff this morning, it was not planned that he was doing this session with the players. In the moment, it looks like he can be part of training tomorrow. That would be pretty helpful obviously and then we go from there.
“It’s surprisingly good. After the game [on Sunday] I was not really positive about it but we got news then that night already that it doesn’t look that bad and from there we went. Now we will see.
“I can imagine everybody thinks now, ‘Three days before a game, cannot train…’ But we just have to be sure we do the right stuff in the right moment and that’s what we try.”
