Klopp unsure if Firmino will face Barcelona

27/04/2019

Liverpool make the trip to Camp Nou for the first leg of their semi-final against Barca on Wednesday and while Klopp is optimistic over Firmino’s availability, the German is not yet certain.

Bobby trained yesterday [Thursday] completely normally. It was not high intensity, we just had to work on set-pieces a little bit and here and there a couple of things,” he told a news conference.

“I didn’t see it in training, it happened in the last situation of training and he felt a muscle a little bit.

“Now, the official diagnosis is he has a small tear in a small muscle, so apart from the word tear everything else is positive.

“It is Bobby, so he might be ready for Wednesday, but we obviously don’t know in the moment. Because it is him, it’s rather likely that [he will be] than not, but we will see.

“So, of all the bad news you can get it is pretty much the best, but it’s still bad enough that he couldn’t play tonight.”
