Klopp hopeful on Henderson

Skipper may play again this season

Jurgen Klopp says it is too early to rule Jordan Henderson out of the Euro 2016 finals and that the midfielder may even play for Liverpool again this season.

Club captain Henderson suffered a knee ligament injury in the Europa League quarter-final first leg draw against Borussia Dortmund in midweek, with Reds boss Klopp initially fearing the worst.

A scan on Friday revealed that, although he wouldn't require surgery, the 25-year-old could be out for up to eight weeks.

That would rule him out of Liverpool's run-in and the start of the Euro 2016 finals in France.

However, Klopp says it is too early to make any such assumptions and he is hopeful that Henderson may even play for the Anfield club this season.

"It is serious, but it's not that serious that there's no hope for us for maybe the last one or two games, and of course there's hope for the European Championships," he said.

"For us he's a very, very important player, getting better and better and better, and obviously he's been playing for England too.

"So that's not a final judgement or whatever that you can say, 'No, there's no chance'. There is a chance.

"We will do everything for him, for us, that he's back in the race as soon as possible.

"That's it, I can't say more. We also have to wait for how each day and see how he does."
