Jurgen Klopp has dismissed concerns that Thiago Alcantra could be sidelined for the season after the Liverpool midfielder was absent for the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury.
The Spaniard was excluded from the Liverpool squad due to a brace from Fabinho and goals from Kaide Gordon and Roberto Firmino sealed a 4-1 win over Shrewsbury in the third round at Anfield.
But Klopp eased any fears that Thiago would be sidelined for a long time.
“He hasn’t trained this week, but we expect him to go back to doing rehab stuff from tomorrow on and then we’ll see,” Klopp said.
“It’s not like he’s out until the end of the season at all.”
