Jurgen Klopp gives latest injury update, speaks out about the January transfer window


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mamadou Sakho and Jordan Ibe are very close to returning to action.

The defender has been ruled out since November 8 after suffering a knee injury against Crystal Palace.

Ibe was also nursing a knee injury but could be in the squad for today's game against West Bromwich Albion.

"Mama [Mamadou Sakho] has trained now. He had his first session with the team yesterday and if nothing happens, he has to go on and carry on with training. That's what he needs now," Klopp explained.

"There are no more issues with the knee and everything is okay, now he has to work to be a real option for us. Next week for sure, he will be available if nothing more happens.

"Jordon [Ibe] feels than better than he did three days ago. Yesterday we took him out onto the pitch but only for a bit of warming up and a little bit of running to help him feel a little bit better after this 'cold' – it was a little bit more than that.

"We'll see how last night was for him when I see him, and then we'll know more. I think he will be available for the squad."

Asked about the upcoming January transfer window, Klopp added: "If we need something we will do it, not talk about it before. But in this moment I don't think about it.

"We are prepared for any situation, we have 24 hours always at work. We always watch players on video but if we take them in winter, in summer or never, I don't know at this moment.

"It's much more important to work with the people here and if you trust them they have to feel it, and not just for two days but for a longer time.

"If we have problems it's not with quality, it's maybe with concentration or other things.

"But we don't know if players we get will do it better. I'd give the advice to stay cool and see what happens."
