Klopp confirms Xherdan Shaqiri will be out "for a while".
Jurgen Klopp revealed today that Xherdan Shaqiri will be out of the start of Liverpool’s pre-season programme.
The midfielder, who returned to Liverpool's Melwood training complex on Monday, won’t participate in the Reds’ pre-season due to a calf tear - an injury he picked up in Switzerland’s Nations League clash with England on June 9.
"Shaq is still injured from the national team and it will take a while until he is in again," Klopp told Liverpool's official website.
"He has a tear in his calf, so he will not be involved for a while."
Liverpool start their pre-season ahead of the 2019-20 campaign with a trip to Tranmere Rovers on Thursday.
