Jurgen Klopp hinted he could be involved in the Champions League final just last week when he said the midfielder was “ahead of schedule” in his recovery. Liverpool fans were hoping to have the former RB Leipzig man in the squad for the showpiece at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano.
However, Klopp admits Keita won’t be ready in time to make the squad, although he did provide a positive update on the fitness of Roberto Firmino. Klopp said: “There’s no chance for Naby but he’s progressing well. “Bobby was part of training last week and will be a part again tomorrow. He’s looking good so he will be part of the final, I’m sure.”
