Jürgen Klopp provides update on Jordan Henderson fitness

Jürgen Klopp provided an update on Jordan Henderson's injury recovery as the Liverpool captain sat out Saturday's friendly with Blackpool.
The midfielder is continuing to rehabilitate the knee issue that sidelined him for the final stages of last season, but participated in parts of team training this week.
And Henderson is on course to step up to full sessions with the squad ahead of the Reds’ Premier League opener against Leeds United next Saturday.
“Obviously Hendo was desperate to play a few minutes today as well, but it makes no real sense because he had to do an important session today for him,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com before kick-off with Blackpool.
“If he would have played today, 10 minutes or so would have probably been OK. But that makes no sense. So that was not possible, but he trained in big parts of this week and will probably join full team training next Tuesday.
“Timing-wise, not perfect that he cannot play today, but can train a few days later fully. But that’s how it is.
“We will see how he develops, [there are] a few days until Leeds, how the boys come back from the national teams. A lot of open questions still, but a few hopefully we can answer today.”
