Champions League News: Thiago Alcantara was part of Liverpool’s training on Tuesday (06/09) ahead of the Champions League trip to Napoli, but two of the Reds’ young midfielders were absent.
Ahead of Liverpool’s 2022/23 Champions League opener in Napoli, the Reds held an open training session at the AXA Training Center or Kirkby on Tuesday (06/09), a training session attended by the media crew.
The squad that trained that day, which included Thiago, was a reflection of the strength of Jurgen Klopp’s squad for their Group A opener, given that his side are still plagued with injuries, a month after the 2022/23 season started.
Jordan Henderson joined the list of players missing with a hamstring injury last week, while Fabio Carvalho picked up a foot injury in last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Everton.
Henderson has been ruled out of the training session and according to reports James Pearce of The Athletic will have to be out for three weeks, but Carvalho’s absence among the 19 people who trained together came as a surprise.
Curtis Jones is also not among those trained under Klopp and his coaching staff Pepijn Lijnders, Peter Krawietz, Vitor Matos and Andreas Kornmayer.
Young players Isaac Mabaya, Stefan Bajcetic and Melkamu Frauendorf were included in this training session, respectively to cover the empty slots in defense and midfield, which were caused by player injuries.
Another player absent is the Reds’ second goalkeeper, Caoimhin Kelleher. 18-year-old Fabian Mrozek was called up to train with Alisson and Adrian.
Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calvin Ramsay are still out of action due to long-term injuries.
