Jurgen Klopp confirms Thiago Alcantara is back on the sidelines

Thiago Alcantara is back in his rehabilitation programme with hip injury.

The Spaniard was left out of the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury yesterday after he suffered a hip injury back in December against Newcastle United.

Many feared that the attacking midfielder would have a lengthy spell on the sidelines and Klopp ensured that.

There’s still a question-mark over his possible return date who is expected to begin his rehab on Monday.

Klopp’s midfield options are currently limited with Naby Keita participating in AFCON and Harvey Elliott still in the infirmary.

The Reds are pleased to welcome Curtis Jones back in the squad who missed the last 13 fixtures due to eye injury and COVID-19.

“Neither March nor the end of the season is in my mind,” Klopp told reporters of his No. 6. “It’s something around the hip. That’s the situation. It needs time.

“We expect him to be back to do rehab stuff tomorrow. He’s not out until the end of the season, not at all.”
