Jurgen Klopp provides major Roberto Firmino fitness update ahead of Champions League final

24 May 2019, 08:00

Ahead of their UEFA Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 1st June, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Roberto Firmino is looking 'really good' in training.

Firmino, absent for four of the Reds' final five games with a groin issue, was given the green light to join his team-mates for the first session of their training camp in Marbella, Spain on Tuesday. In his absence, however, Divock Origi has stepped up as he scored a brace in the second-leg semifinal against Barcelona that helped them book a place in the final.

Klopp provided an injury update on the Brazilian ahead of the final, "Bobby looks really good (and) he is now part of training. It was not too long out, but of course, we are still careful and want to make sure nothing happens. We have a few days still and want to use them, that’s why he is in, out, in, out.

"Yesterday, he was only playing as a ‘joker’ (in the small-sided games) but it is good for him, the first step to play football again. Today he was in around about 70% of the session. Tomorrow he will probably be in completely, we will see, then hopefully it will be fine."
