Jurgen Klopp issues Curtis Jones injury update ahead of Atletico Madrid and Manchester United clashes

Jurgen Klopp issues Curtis Jones injury update ahead of Atletico Madrid and Manchester United clashes

Curtis Jones spotted in training

Curtis Jones returned to Liverpool from international duty carrying an injury, sustained with the England U21s in their 1-0 over Andorra.

This led Jurgen Klopp to question his game-time for the Young Lions, saying:

When we talk about federations, Curtis Jones came back from England U-21s injured. Great! It’s hard to get in touch with them. They played Andorra, really important he played there…..”

As per the reliable Anfield watch, however, Jones’ injury should not keep him sidelined for too much longer, as he was spotted in first-team training ahead of the club’s clash with Atletico Madrid.

With fit midfield options thin on the ground at Liverpool, in the form of just Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Naby Keita, Jones’ return will come as a massive boost to the Reds.

Klopp rules Jones out of Champions League tie

Despite the seemingly positive update on Jones’ recovery from injury, however, he will not be present in Madrid when Jurgen Klopp’s side take on Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s clash with La Liga’s champions, Klopp confirmed that his midfield starlet will be staying in Liverpool, with the aim to be fit for the club’s meeting with Manchester United this weekend.

With Liverpool still light in midfield, Klopp will be hoping to emerge unscathed from what will surely be a fiery encounter at the Wanda Metropolitano tomorrow night.
