Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson could be back for the final two games, reports 90min.com. The Kop boss Jurgen Klopp hasn’t yet completely ruled out Henderson’s possibility of playing again this Premier League season.
The ex-Sunderland star damaged his lateral collateral ligament in the Europa League Quarter Finals with Dortmund. There have been reports stating Jordan would miss the remainder of the season but his manager feels Henderson has a slight ‘chance’ of featuring again for the club in this campaign. He can even make a quick recovery to take part in Euro 2016, thinks the Kop boss.
“It’s serious but it’s not that serious that there is not hope for us for maybe the last one or two games.” Said Klopp.
“It’s also clear there is still hope for the European Championships.”
‘Very important’ to the team: that is how Jurgen Klopp described Jordan Henderson. The German believes that the skipper has improved over time and is looking forward to return soon to join the practice sessions.
“For us he is a very important player who has been getting better and better. But he’s an important player for England too, so there is no final judgement that there is no chance.
“There is a chance. It’s isolated, nothing else. It’s not good news but it’s a part of some good news. We will do everything to get him back in the race as soon as possible. Each day we will see what we can do.”
Henderson has everyone’s support, the players the fans and hopefully he will recover soon from injury to make a return to his team, says the ex-Dortmund boss, who watched his side drawing 1-1 at the Signal Iduna Park in the absence of their skipper.
“Of course we have supported him. We heard about it at half-time, that it was more serious, so we fight for him. He was injured in a situation fighting for us.”
