Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has revealed there is ‘a good chance’ Thiago Alcantara can be involved in Saturday’s Champions League final.
The Spaniard picked up an injury in Liverpool’s last match of the 2021/22 season but is expected to join his teammates in training ahead of the clash at Parc des Princes.
Speaking on Wednesday, Klopp revealed the club’s No.6 has an outside chance of playing against the Spanish champions.
“I only met him now inside… a good chance. So he will be training this afternoon.
“He did some stuff this morning, it was not planned that he was doing this session with the players. In the moment, it looks like he can be part of training tomorrow. That would be pretty helpful obviously and then we go from there.
“It’s surprisingly good. After the game [on Sunday] I was not really positive about it but we got news then that night already that it doesn’t look that bad and from there we went. Now we will see.
“I can imagine everybody thinks now, ‘Three days before a game, cannot train…’ But we just have to be sure we do the right stuff in the right moment and that’s what we try.”
Liverpool will be aiming to complete a treble when they face the Los Blancos in what will be a repeat of the 2018 final, which Madrid won 3-1.
