Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of Thiago Alcantara amid fears the midfielder will miss the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final due to injury, Newsbreak reports.
The former Bayern Munich man was forced off at half-time of the Reds’ 3-1 win over Wolves on the final day of the English Premier League (EPL) campaign, having pulled up when attempting a crossfield pass to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
He will undergo a scan today (Monday) to establish the extent of the problem, but is a serious doubt to face Real Madrid in Saturday’s showdown in Paris, France.
Speaking in his post-match press conference, coach Jurgen Klopp provided only a vague update on Thiago’s status.
He told newsmen: “[It’s] not good, but I can’t say more. He was outside with the families, had his little girl on his shoulders, so he could walk, that’s obviously a good sign. All the rest we will see from tomorrow.
“[It’s the] lower part of the body. I know it, but actually don’t want to talk now about it. We will see.
“Give us a chance to have the [scan]; it makes the news not better or worse. We want to wait until we know more about it and then you will get the information as well.”
