Jurgen Klopp Says Mane, Clyne And Lallana Close To Return

Mane Loss a Huge Blow for Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp indicated in his press conference that the rehabilitation programmes of longer-term absentees Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Nathaniel Clyne are progressing nicely.

Klopp is hopeful that Mane and Lallana would be ready for action after the forthcoming international break in November. When asked about the recovery of the trio, the manager said in his pre-match press conference that they are still a few games from first-team football.

In his press conference Klopp said “Very good, but no option for tomorrow, no option for Wednesday and no option for West Ham.

“After the international break, I think Adam and Sadio are back. It will be close, so hopefully, they can train during the international break and be part of the normal training.

“Adam was this week, for the first time, part of the warming up. His face showed how happy he was about this!

“I saw in the last hour them both with the fitness coaches on the pitch doing technical things and stuff like this, so it all looks good.

“In the end, they all need to be at 100 percent and they aren’t at the moment, so that’s it – but they’re on a good way.”
