Klopp Declares Fabinho Fit for Barcelona Clash
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that Fabinho is fit for selection for tonight’s Champions League semi-final against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
The Brazilian was taken off during the Reds’ 2-0 win over Cardiff ten days ago with concussion and missed the 5-0 victory over Huddersfield on Friday night.
But Klopp insists the player is perfectly fine now and in line for selection for tonight’s crunch match in Spain.
“He was not available. Every human being needs time and he needed that time, but it was already three or four days ago; if the Huddersfield game would have been a day later he could have played, but it was just impossible for that game. But it’s OK.
“This is now the most intense period of a long, long season because we now have three games in six days and we need to think about different things. Of course, with the opponents we have it’s difficult. But the boys are all in good shape so we will use as many as possible.”
