Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he does not have enough players to make changes to his squad for Tuesday’s clash with Ajax, with reports suggesting Thiago Alcantara will not be available until next year as he’s still recovering from his knee injury.
According to Klopp, his main concern is not the Champions League, his main concern is the situation of the players because there are no regular substitutes left in the squad.
Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers also said that with the growing number of injuring concerns facing clubs, the Premier League should rethink on rescheduling games so that players can have enough rest.
Thiago Alcantara has been out of action since the Liverpool-Everton draw on October 17, adding to the likes of captain Jordan Henderson, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and James Milner in addition to Xherdan Shaqiri and Trent. Meanwhile, Trent Alexandre-Arnold and Naby Keita are both still recovering and are unlikely to return before the new year.
