Liverpool vs Man United: Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, has confirmed that Naby Keita will miss Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday night due to injury.
Klopp said Keita wasn’t ready for the Manchester United clash, adding that the player needed to get 100 percent fit before he could play for Liverpool again.
This was what the Reds Boss said during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
Liverpool will head to the game after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton in their last match of the Premier League.
“Naby is not ready for involvement. It’s not a big thing; it’s a little bit like with other players in the past when they came back from injuries and then because of the number of games and situation in the squad they had to play,” Klopp said.
“Then, a little injury happened again. Now we just had to put on the brake and say, ‘Let’s settle it properly.’
“At the moment we have alternatives in midfield, so we really try to give him all the time he needs to get 100 per cent fit.
“That’s the situation, so no, he is not in contention for Sunday.”
The kick-off time for Liverpool vs Man United match is 5:30 pm, Nigerian time.
