Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that there is a “good chance” that Thiago Alcantara will participate in the Champions League final on Saturday.
The Spaniard was injured in Liverpool’s last game in the 2021/02 season, but is expected to join his teammates in training before facing Parc des Princes.
Speaking on Wednesday, Klopp revealed that the No. 6 holder has an outside chance to play against the Spanish champions.
“I only met him indoors now… Good chance. So he will be training this afternoon.
“He did a few things this morning, and he wasn’t planning to do this session with the guys. At the moment, it looks like he could be part of the training tomorrow. Obviously that would be very helpful and then we start from there.
“It’s surprisingly good. After the game [on Sunday] I wasn’t really positive about it but we got news that night already that it didn’t look that bad and from there we went. Now we will see.
“I can imagine everyone is now thinking, ‘Three days before the game, they can’t train…’ but we just have to make sure we’re doing the right things at the right moment and that’s what we’re trying to do.”
Liverpool will seek to complete the treble when they meet Los Blancos In what will be a repeat of the 2018 final, which Real Madrid won 3-1.
