Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that he is preparing for the Bayern clash in the UEFA Champions League without Croatian defender, Dejan Lovren.
Dejan has been out with a hamstring injury since Jan. 7, and could not travel to Los Blancos for the red’s warm-weather training camp this week.
This is major news for Klopp because key centre-half, Virgil van Dijk is suspended for Bayern’s visit to Anfield next week.
His words, “I don’t want to rule it out but I cannot really plan with it,”
“He is not here [in Spain] for good reasons, because he cannot be part of training. We are back on Friday. Then from Saturday on, Dejan is back at Melwood and we will see.
“We are back on Friday. Then from Saturday on, Dejan is back at Melwood and we will see.
“But, of course, we have to prepare it differently. If Dejan gives a sign on Monday — ‘I feel brilliant’ — then we’d have to think anew.
“But at the moment we prepare the game and, in this preparation, Dejan is not involved. We have to find other solutions.”
