'He has a good chance' – Jurgen Klopp believes Thiago WILL be fit for Champions League final with Fabinho already back

JURGEN KLOPP believes Thiago will be fit for the Champions League final.

And he could join Fabinho in midfield with the Brazilian already back in training.


Thiago, 31, picked up an Achilles injury on the final day of the Premier League season against Wolves.

He was subbed off just before half-time with Reds fans fearing the influential star would have to sit out in Paris on Saturday.

Thiago sat out of training on Wednesday morning but was due to be involved in the afternoon session.

And Klopp provided a positive update on his No6.

The German said: "I only met him just now but he has a good chance [of playing the fixture]. He will be training this afternoon.

"He did some stuff this morning and he will doing a session later with the players.

"After the game, I was not feeling very positive about it, but we got news that night that it didn't look that bad. We will see.

"As you can imagine, three days before a game and you can't train is not ideal but you just have to be sure and do the right stuff in the right moment."

But while Thiago's involvement is still unclear, it looks as though Fabinho will be able to play against Real Madrid at the Stade de France.

The holding midfielder – such a key player for Liverpool – picked up a hamstring problem against Aston Villa on May 10.

That forced the 28-year-old out of the FA Cup final and Premier League finale.

But Fabinho was pictured going through his paces with his team-mates today in a major boost.

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez also missed the Wolves clash but, like Fabinho, were involved in Wednesday's training.
