Jurgen Klopp gives three-player injury update as one star sent back to UK

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has provided an injury update from the team's pre-season training camp in Austria. The Reds captain Jordan Henderson and defender Joel Matip are making "very positive" progress in their rehabilitation from knee and foot injuries, while Alexa Oxlade-Chamberlain has sustained a problem and will miss the rest of the pre-season. Speaking about Henderson and Matip, Klopp said: "Both are very positive, both are more or less pain-free now. Now they have to adapt just to the intensity and they do that with the fitness coaches and not with us. “In the moment when they give us the green light then they are back in team training. “How I said, we should not rush it in the moment. I would love to have both in the squad obviously but in the moment it's not possible. “So they will be back in the early stages of the new season. Hopefully for the first match already.” "Really unfortunate," the German said of Oxlade-Chamberlain. "An unfortunate situation as well; it was a challenge [in training]. “It looks like it is very similar to what Hendo had, which keeps him out for we don’t know for sure exactly how long, but for sure this pre-season he will not make a game, Arsenal for sure not and then we will see. "The next game is probably two weeks later, but I don’t know. “We have to wait but it is far away from being perfect, of course. It is really hard for him and hard for us, but it is not to change.” The Reds are preparing to play a friendly game against Stuttgart today, August 22. source - Express Join us on Telegram
