​Jurgen Klopp admits he is unsure if Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson will feature in any of the Reds remaining five games as they look to secure Champions League football, according to Joe writer Tony Barrett, who reported the Reds boss as saying: "At this moment he cannot train. We have to wait."


Henderson has missed the Reds last eight matches after picking up what was then considered an innocuous training ground injury to the foot which required only a couple weeks on the sideline. 

Over two months later and Henderson is yet to show any signs of returning to training with the first team, and when asked if his captain could miss the rest of the season, Klopp claimed the following via further quotes obtained from the ​Liverpool Echo“I don’t know, we will see.


“In this moment he cannot really train so we have to wait for that moment. That’s been the plan since the beginning. Of course we are in intense talks to different departments, the medical department of course. He is already not patient.

Asked if the absence was frustrating the 26-year-old, Klopp added: “Not more than for me, but yes. It’s not cool. He looks really healthy but he cannot play football, that’s the situation.”


Since Henderson's last appearance in the Reds' 2-0 victory over Tottenham, after an initial adjustment period following his injuryLiverpool have picked up 17 points out of a possible 24 thanks to the in-form Lucas Leiva, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum.


Injuries have continued to threaten to derail the Reds season throughout the campaign, however sitting in third place with five games remaining has the Champions League qualification within arms reach.
