Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp provides injury update on summer signing Dominik Szoboszlai
Liverpool fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Jurgen Klopp provides a positive update on summer signing Dominik Szoboszlai, who suffered a minor injury in training and had to sit out the pre-season match against Furth today.
“He rolled his ankle slightly in training, really nothing. Everybody is super-positive about it, himself first.”
“If we would have today a Premier League game or whatever, he could play. So, we don’t take a risk and we will see what we will do with the Leicester game after travel [and] stuff like this. But for the Bayern game he will be ready.”
While Szoboszlai’s absence in the recent friendly is precautionary, Klopp emphasizes that the talented midfielder could have played if it were a Premier League game. The priority now is to avoid any risks and ensure his full recovery before making any decisions about his involvement in the upcoming game against Leicester on 30th July at 9:00 AM GMT.
With their sights set on the much-anticipated pre-season friendly against Bayern in Singapore on 2nd August, Klopp confidently assures fans that Szoboszlai will be fully ready for that showdown.
Despite the minor setback in training, Szoboszlai’s spirits remain high, and the Liverpool medical staff is optimistic about his quick return to action. Klopp’s emphasis on player well-being and avoiding unnecessary risks is a testament to the club’s commitment to the welfare of its players.
The young Hungarian’s talent and potential have already excited Liverpool supporters, and they are eager to witness him in action once he fully recovers.
As the team prepares for the upcoming Premier League season, a fully fit Szoboszlai could play a crucial role in Liverpool’s ambitions for success. His creative flair and ability to influence games from midfield make him a valuable asset for Klopp’s attacking philosophy.
Liverpool fans eagerly await the Hungarian’s debut in competitive matches and are excited to see him link up with established stars like Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota among others.
