Klopp says Liverpool was hit by sickness bug ahead of clash with Manchester City
Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has said that his players had suffered some health challenges ahead of their Premier League trip to Manchester City.
Addressing reporters ahead of the match today, April 1, Klopp said his players suffered “stomach bugs” during the international break, but thankfully they’ve cleared up.
Talking about midfielders Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara, the German tactician said;
“Naby is out. He came back with a muscle injury from the national team. We will see how long it takes.
“Thiago is in a good way, but is not part of team training yet. He will probably be part of next week’s training. Rhys Williams has a little bit of something. We had stomach bugs here and there, but that stopped two days ago.”
It’s going to be a huge week for Liverpool as they will also be facing Chelsea on Tuesday, April 4, and Premier League leaders Arsenal next Sunday.
