Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Xherdan Shaqiri has yet to overcome his persistent calf issues and he is unlikely to make a comeback in the near future. The Switzerland international has not featured for the club since January 11 and Klopp is unsure over a possible return date for the attacker.
In a report covered by the club’s official website, Klopp said that Shaqiri is nowhere close to training with the first-team squad and he cannot put any timeframe for him to return to first-team action, he told: “Not close to team training yet. We never did, but this time for sure we cannot, put any time pressure on it because it is obviously a difficult one. It was never a big one but always big enough to keep him out for another two or three weeks. So, we just wait. He is not close to team training.”
