Jurgen Klopp says midfielder is sure to make Euro 2016
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp gave good news regarding the fitness of Jordan Henderson.
Henderson was feared to be ruled out for the remainder of the season after he was injured against Borussia Dortmund.
Although Klopp was not sure whether he would make next week’s Europa League final, he was adamant that he would be fit for England’s European Championship campaign.
“Hendo first, really good news,” he said.
“With his injury we had to rest him for a long time, we couldn’t really do a lot.
“We met a possible surgeon and he said ‘no [he doesn’t need surgery]’. So it’s good.
“Yesterday he was on the pitch, not with the team, but the rehab department.
“It’s not sure [whether he can play vs. Sevilla], because it’s only nine days now before the final.
“But 100 percent he will be fit for the Euros in France. That’s how it is. For our game, we have to see what happens.”
Klopp also said that he would name a fully fit squad for the midweek game at Chelsea after rotating against Watford on Sunday.
However he will still adhere to his squad rotation policy ahead of the final next week.
“We’ll bring the fittest players,” he continued.
“We had a few changes in the last game now most of the players who play tomorrow had a normal week.
“Then we’ll make a squad for Sunday, then make a squad for Basel. We do it all the time like this.
“What I’ve learned is to rotate! When you’re a young manager it’s not easy to do this. We’ve used our experience.
“We’ll have fresh legs for tomorrow and fresh legs for Sunday [vs. West Bromwich Albion].
“For the final you don’t have to think about fresh legs—we’ll be ready!”
