Liverpool fans bump into Jurgen Klopp on training ground tour

Liverpool fans on an AXA Training Ground Tour yesterday were treated to an impromptu conversation with Jurgen Klopp. The tour is part of Liverpool's ‘ultimate LFC experience' which provides fans with a walk around of the training centre and Anfield.

In a video, which has since been deleted, a Liverpool fan shared his tour experience where his group were greeted by Jurgen Klopp who stopped for several minutes to have a chat. After exchanging pleasantries, the Liverpool manager then started to field questions from the Liverpool supporters about the status of certain squad members.

When asked by one member of the group about the status of Alisson, who has been missing from action since the middle of February, the German said: “Two and a half to three weeks. It's not that long anymore.”

Klopp also provided updates on Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip and Diogo Jota who have all been missing for several weeks now. In the post on X, the Liverpool fan in question said:

“Sounds like a flex but genuinely spoke to Jurgen today, been on a AXA tour. Jota was training on his own. He said Ali is 2 1/2 – 3 weeks away. Said Trent is still injured but not far off. Matip was also back out running on his own.”

Liverpool instruct fan to remove post

The story has taken another twist, after the original poster updated his X feed with a post that stated that Liverpool had been in touch to tell him to take the post down.

However, with the news now in the public domain, Liverpool fans can get excited about the prospect of Alisson, Jota, and Alexander-Arnold all returning in the coming weeks. Liverpool face Man Utd at Old Trafford on Sunday, 7 April, a date that could see the trio return in what would be a timely boost as they continue to battle on four fronts.

Klopp has managed to navigate his team through a tricky period despite a severe injury list and they are just one point off the top of the Premier League table with ten games to go.
