Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Thiago Alcantara will probably need a little bit longer to get back to full fitness.

The Reds are set to face Watford on Saturday, October 16, once Premier League action resumes from international break.

And it seems that Thiago Alcantara will not be fit to play. Speaking to Liverpool’s official club website, Klopp said:

“Thiago needs probably a little bit longer, [he] was not in team training yet – that’s always not a good sign for starting the next game.


“And the rest [of the] international [players], some are back, obviously some are not back yet. And we will see.”

Thiago has missed each of the Reds’ last two league games, and despite the fact there’s been an international break in between the Manchester City match and the clash with Watford, Thiago is still not available.
