Jurgen Klopp gives update on Jordan Henderson's recovery and fitness

Jurgen Kline says that the skipper was very eager to play today but that was impossible.

He adds that Hendo has trained in bits and will join full training this coming Tuesday as he hopes to be fit for the Premier League opener.

“Obviously Hendo was desperate to play a few minutes today as well, but it makes no real sense because he had to do an important session today for him,” Jurgen Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

“If he would have played today, 10 minutes or so would have probably been OK. But that makes no sense. So that was not possible, but he trained in big parts of this week and will probably join full team training next Tuesday.

“Timing-wise, not perfect that he cannot play today, but can train a few days later fully. But that’s how it is.

“We will see how he develops, [there are] a few days until Leeds, how the boys come back from the national teams. A lot of open questions still, but a few hopefully we can answer today.”

The Reds beat Blackpool 7-2 in what was a magnificent all-round performance and one of the few times when we haven't missed Hendo's influence on the pitch!

We wish the captain a speedy recovery and hope to see him back for our opening game against Leeds United on September 12. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
