The head coach also said: “We all feel for him, we all feel with him, and we give him and his family our condolences.” “We try to give him all the warmth, all the love we have at this moment, and that’s it. The rest is private,” the Liverpool boss added.
Liverpool Head Coach Talks on Henderson’s Contract Extention
The Reds will welcome an entire crowd to Anfield for the first time since March 2020 when they host Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday. The club’s skipper Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara could return for the Reds after missing the opening 3-0 win over Norwich City.
The pair who returned late because of their Euro 2020 featured behind-closed-doors friendly against Aston Villa during the week. Klopp said they are “much closer” and also confirmed contract talks with captain Henderson remain ongoing.
Klopp speaking about Henderson’s contract talks, said: “We will try everything to have our first home game in front of our crowd for the first time in 520-something days, I think, and we want to enjoy that.”
“Football is only possible to enjoy when you play positively when you go for it. There are no guarantees out there, not at all, especially not against Burnley because they can make your life uncomfortable.”
Liverpool will be looking to take an act of revenge on Burnley. Remember, the Premier League side beat them last season even though most of their key players were injured.
