Jurgen Klopp says he is hopeful that Jordan Henderson’s ankle injury is not too serious.

The England midfielder had to come off in the 13th minute of Liverpool FC’s impressive 3-1 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night as the Reds booked their place in the quarter-finals in style.

Two goals from Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk’s header secured Liverpool FC’s place in the last-eight draw, which takes place on Friday morning.

Klopp was asked for an update on Henderson’s injury at his post-match news conference on Wednesday night, and the Liverpool FC boss shed light on the initial impressions of the setback.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said: “It’s a big night with a little shadow that is Hendo’s twisted ankle.

“It’s Hendo so he’s a hard one, but we have to see, of course. It looks hopefully not that serious but for tonight we had to change.

“That’s always a bad sign for a game, when you have to change early. We trained with him there in that position – we wanted to, not to rest Fabinho, but we wanted to bring in fresh legs and Hendo had fresh legs but unfortunately that didn’t help with the ankle.”

Liverpool FC will likely be without Henderson when the Reds travel to Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit are currently in second place in the Premier League table and a point behind leaders Manchester City.

They know that a win at Craven Cottage would put them back on top, with Manchester City on FA Cup duty this weekend.

Liverpool FC are still searching for their first major trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in 2015.
