Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said Roberto Firmino is poised to return to full training.
In what is a big injury boost ahead of the Champions League final against Tottenham, the Reds boss confirmed that the Brazilian has recovered from a groin injury that kept him out of the Premier League run-in:
“Bobby looks really good [and] he is now part of training. It was not too long out, but of course, we are still careful and want to make sure nothing happens.”
The news on Naby Keita is not as good, but Klopp did reveal that the Guinean midfielder is ahead of schedule, but won’t be back for the final as some reports had suggested:
“Naby is, I would say, a bit ahead of schedule, but that doesn’t mean anything for the final. He is now doing straight runs and all of that stuff, he feels comfortable with 50 per cent intensity and these things – but there is still a way to go.”
In terms of other injury news, the only other concern is left-back Andy Robertson who is still feeling the effects of a challenge he sustained in the 4-0 win over Barcelona.
The Scotland captain managed to play in the victory over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season but felt an issue in his calf. He should still be fit to play in the final on June 1st.
