Jurgen Klopp speaks out on rumours Liverpool’s Thiago has been ruled out for the season

Jurgen Klopp has moved to address claims that Thiago Alcantara will be out for the rest of the season due to injury.

Liverpool see off Shrewsbury

Liverpool played host to League One outfit Shrewsbury on Sunday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp made a number of changes for the tie, perhaps handing the away outfit hope of an upset.

And such hopes would only have increased further when Daniel Udoh fired Shrewsbury into the lead after 27 minutes.

However, normal service was resumed shortly after when Kaide Gordon brought Liverpool back on level terms 34 minutes in.

A Fabinho brace and a Roberto Firmino goal then ensured that the Reds came away with a comfortable 4-1 win.

Klopp quizzed on Thiago rumours

Following the game, Jurgen Klopp would be quizzed on rumours that Thiago Alcantara is set to remain out of action until the end of the season owing to an injury.

The German, though, was quick to shut down such suggestions, assuring that Thiago will begin rehab this coming Monday:

“No, neither March or end of the season is in my mind. It’s around the hip, that’s the situation and it needs time. Didn’t train this week but we expect him to be back for rehab from Monday. He’s not out until end of the season. Not at all.”
