(Photo by Chris Brunskill/Fantasista/Getty Images)Guinea midfielder Naby Keita is close to a return to full training, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp confirmed on Friday.Keita has been out of action with a hip injury since August causing him to miss Liverpool’s UEFA Super Cup win against Chelsea and three subsequent Premier League matches.Keita will miss Liverpool’s game against Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday and the away trip to Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.However, Klopp expects Keita to be available for training following the trip to Italy.“Naby is close, much closer than Ali. I think he could be in training when we come back from Napoli next week,” Klopp said.Klopp also added during the pre-match press conference that goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s recovery from a calf injury will be assessed on a daily basis with no return date set.“The target was always after the next international break [that] he could be ready, but we don’t know. So, as I said, there is no pressure and hopefully everything will be fine for the rest of the season, that’s the plan,” Klopp said.Liverpool is currently top of the Premier League with four wins out of four games, two points ahead of defending champions Manchester City.Related Liverpool manager says Naby Keita fit for Newcastle clashcenter_img AFCON 2019: Naby Keita returns to Liverpool after sustaining injurylast_img read more

“If you sell him, it will be a problem” – Ex-Tottenham…

first_imgFor just over a year, Martin Jol was the manager at Ajax for the 2009-10 season and the first half of the following campaign. Never managing to win the Eredivisie, he did, however, lead the club to a Dutch cup success in his first season, but perhaps one of his biggest contributions was to give Christian Eriksen his professional debut.Throwing him in at the deep end in a 1-1 draw against NAC Breda in January 2010, Jol saw the talent in a player who would eventually become a talisman at one of his own former clubs: Tottenham.Eriksen moved to Spurs three years later for around £13m, where he would go on to play for six and a half years before being transferred in January 2020 to Inter.Things haven’t gone all that well for the Dane since his move to Italy, with Antonio Conte not managing to find a way to get the best out of his new acquisition as of yet.Embed from Getty ImagesIt’s not exactly been smooth sailing for Tottenham either, as José Mourinho’s side might have won the first three games after his departure, but subsequently lost the following four before football was suspended.Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Martin Jol revealed he predicted this and warned the Spurs chairman not to let the Denmark international go.He said: “There are many players at Inter in his position: if you think he is the best, then he has to play. If he is just one of the 24, then this is a problem. I always said to the Tottenham president, Daniel Levy, ‘if you sell him, it will be a problem’, because Christian was the leader and the extra man for Spurs.“Now he can be that at Inter: Conte is a top manager. He will know how best to use him.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
