It has been stated that the 27-year-old will Liverpool player will keep improving his fitness in order to be ready for Guinea’s International duty.
A series of injuries
The Guinean international had a muscle injury during training, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, and hasn’t been eligible for selection since.
James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and captain Jordan Henderson are all out with the 27-year-old in due to injuries as well. Henderson has a hamstring issue (from which he recovered).
The Liverpool No. 8 off from the International Duty?
Guinea’s assertion brings an odd chapter for the Scouser to an end. It had come as a surprise to see him called up for his country’s team this month after suffering an injury in August.
It seems unlikely that the midfielder would participate. Especially because he had never been selected for Liverpool’s Champions League team in the past. In response to a question concerning the No. 8 predicament last week, Jurgen Klopp himself stated as much.
He was still on the list for Guinea, though. Simply put, that made it seem possible that he may be involved.
It turns out that the African team’s optimism was only wishful thinking. The Guinean No. 8 is a vital member of the team and serves as their captain. It makes sense that they would take every precaution to keep him healthy.
The future for the Reds and the Guinean international
Even though Liverpool’s midfield problems are beginning to improve, having the Guinean back in the lineup would be beneficial. The dressing room, the manager, and the fans- all are aware of what the Guinean brings to the table for the Reds.
The Reds are relieved to hear that their No. 8 won’t run the danger of worsening an injury while travelling with his country. Instead, he can ideally concentrate on regaining his fitness while being closely monitored by Liverpool’s medical staff.
