Klopp is optimistic about Liverpool's Alisson.

Updated: Jul 28, 2022

Liverpool boss Klopp is optimistic about goalkeeper Alisson's fitness ahead of the Community Shield clash against Man City at the weekend.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful Alisson will return in due time after he was sidelined due to an abdominal injury.

Liverpool play Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield on Saturday, and the German boss is expecting the Brazil shot-stopper to feature in the match at Wembley.

Alisson has restarted training at the Reds' camp in Austria but hasn't played a match since the 4-0 defeat by Manchester United in Bangkok.

Klopp said as Sky Sports reported: "Obviously Diogo is not here, that's clear. But from the boys who are injured but are here, Ali is the closest - definitely not for Salzburg, but we will see. He is close to getting back I think.

"This afternoon is an important session as well. In this moment I don't know who can take part in it.

"We need to have a look and we'll play the game. It's pre-season so we have to get through it and then we have to deal with it."
