Liverpool boss hints that injured star could return for Euro 2016

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes injured star Jordan Henderson can recover in time to feature for his side as well as the England national team, Talksport reports.

The 25-year-old damaged his knee ligaments in the 1-1 Europa League draw with Borussia Dortmund last Thursday and will not feature in the second leg.

Henderson is expected to be sidelined for about eight weeks, but is very lucky that no major surgery is required despite being seen watching the match against Stoke City this past weekend with crutches.

The midfielder was also in line to miss out on a spot with England ahead of Euro 2016, but Klopp has come out to play up his chances of recovering before the end of the season and making it into Roy Hodgson’s squad.

“It (Henderson’s injury) 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.

“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.”

Despite their latest victory, the Reds are still some way off the top four as Klopp looks to undergo a squad overhaul during the upcoming summer window.
