Klopp hopeful over Matip injury


Jurgen Klopp is confident Joel Matip will return to training this week despite being forced off in the pre-season victory over Wigan Athletic with an ankle injury.

The summer signing from Schalke started alongside Dejan Lovren in defence but limped off in the final stages of Liverpool's 2-0 win at the DW Stadium.

Although it is a problem he has encounter before, Klopp expects the 24-year-old to train as normal on Tuesday.

“I hope it’s only a minor problem. He said he’s had it one or two times already," Klopp explained.

“It’s the foot he had problems with in the past and then he had a little bit of pain when pre-season started because of the intensity. He’s used to it. Hopefully it is like this because everyone can see he’s in a real good way.

“I think tomorrow he’ll rest, then he can go again.”

“It’s not too serious, hopefully. We had to make the decision of Joel or Dejan, who has to play the whole 90 minutes?

“We decided on Joel. For him it was a little bit too much today, but he is in a good way, as you can see.”
