James Milner: Shows his frustration

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that James Milner will miss the rest of Liverpool’s pre-season tour of Germany.

The Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed the extent of James Milner‘s thigh injury, as well as the fitness of Danny Ward, Loris Karius and Nathaniel Clyne.

Milner limped off during last weekend’s 2-1 win over Leicester City in Hong Kong, and was replaced by Alberto Moreno.

“It was clear from the first day there’s a little bit of tendon involved, so that means that it’s around 10 days,” he said of Milner.

“That means he will do his rehab here in Germany and then should be fit again when we’re at home.

“With injuries, you can’t be sure but it shouldn’t be much longer.

“This is maybe the longest Clyney has been out with a little bit of [an issue with] the back. We have to wait, time is running and we need Clyney of course.

“Loris and Danny, I am not 100 percent sure. Wardy is not too serious but it always takes its time, we will see how long it takes.

“Loris should be in tomorrow or the day after tomorrow at the latest, then we will have him back but it’s not too cool for the boys.”
