Henderson injury could end his season, says Klopp

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is a major doubt to feature in the rest of this season.

The midfielder has missed the last 8 games for the reds, last featuring in the home 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool have won 5, drawn 2 and lost once since the captain was sidelined with a foot injury.

With 5 games left in the final 31 days of the season time is not on his side.

Klopp was asked if Henderson will be involved in the reds final month of action.

"I don’t know, we will see.  At 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."

After two months out Klopp highlighted that the player was feeling frustrated:

"It’s not cool. he looks really healthy but he cannot play football, that’s the situation.

There was some good news however with Adam Lallana stepping up his work with the rehab coach and Danny Ings, who suffered a cruciate knee injury at the end of October now back in the gym and on the running machines.  The former Burnley striker will not be available for the reds however until 2017/18.
