Ebene News – AU – Jurgen Klopp makes Thiago fitness admission ahead of Newcastle clash

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp prevented Thiago Alcantara from returning to action in Wednesday night’s Premier League clash with Newcastle, despite his final return to training

Klopp had to constantly answer questions about the Spaniard’s state of health throughout his frustrating absence and fans were at least supported this week when it was confirmed he would return to the full training with the rest of the team

But the trip to St James ’Park came too early for Thiago to play and Klopp is being cautious

“Of course we look forward to [Thiago] coming back, but I don’t know He’s not really likely to make it [to Newcastle], let me put it like that,” a explained Klopp, via LiverpoolFCcom

“He needs a few sessions He was really gone for a long time after a really tough challenge – it was an appropriate impact Nothing broken, nothing broken, but it obviously took time and it still takes time We can’t rush this, we won’t do So I don’t know “

Thiago has already missed 16 games in all competitions due to the dangerous tackle that saw Richarlison of Everton sent off in the derby He had previously had to miss four games almost upon arriving from Germany after testing positive for coronavirus
