Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has “no worries” about captain Jordan Henderson being added to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, according to the Daily Mail reporter Dominic King.
The reliable journalist claims that there was “a possibility” that Henderson would have been fit for the Chelsea game at the weekend before it was postponed, so Klopp is happy to see him get some minutes under his belt on international duty instead:

Henderson picked up a hamstring injury during the 2-1 win over Newcastle last month, and it was initially assumed that he would need the international break to make a full recovery.
However, it now appears that the 32-year-old will see some action in England’s Nations League matches versus Italy and Germany this week.
Supporters will be hoping that Henderson comes through both games unscathed and that he is available for selection when the Reds take on Brighton at Anfield on October 1st.
