Jürgen Klopp gives Thiago Alcantara update after reports he will be back soon

Jürgen Klopp has given the latest update on Thiago Alcantara after the Spanish international returns to training following some time out through injury.

The former Bayern star was pictured in the club's training ground last week and there are reports he might be back during the busy Christmas schedule for the last season Champion.

However, Klopp thinks he might not be available until January when asked if Thiago is eager to ignite his Liverpool career following the injury he picked up during the game against Everton in October.

‘He is, he is. We’ve already made jokes here when we said, “I think we should sign Thiago for January,' Klopp said

‘So it gets closer and closer, and it’s a good way, but we will not rush it.

‘We cannot rush it, and he will not because he’s not allowed to rush it. But of course, it’s nice.

‘Having him on the pitch, training, doing a lot of stuff.

‘But he was not in team training yet and that’s actually the final step.

‘We will see how this weekend looks with him on the [training] pitch and next week can he be in team training? I don’t know in the moment 100%.

‘He has to pass a few tests on the training pitch until we make that decision.

‘Hopefully, that’s not only for him the case, but Milly [James Milner] will be similar, with Shaq [Xherdan Shaqiri] it will be similar.

‘Did I forget anyone? If I forgot someone it’s not because I’m disrespectful it’s just a lot of players are injured at the moment!’
