Full Fitness update: Robertson, Jones, Konate, Nunez, Bajcetic and more

Jürgen Klopp has given an update on the physical condition of his team prior to Sunday’s match against Brighton & Hove Albion, which includes the first report on Andy Robertson’s fitness.


The left-back of Liverpool Robertson was substituted in the first half of Scotland’s friendly against Northern Ireland on Tuesday night due to an apparent ankle injury.


During his pre-match press conference this afternoon, Klopp provided the most recent update, stating: “Regarding Robbo, we are approaching his situation with a day-by-day approach, so we will wait and see.”


He will abstain from training today, but the situation is not as severe. That is acceptable.


In other locations, Curtis Jones is resuming training, while Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez are both in good health prior to the Premier League match against the Seagulls.


“Curtis, I am uncertain of his availability for Sunday, but he will be present during training,” stated the manager. “Ibou was given an additional day of rest on Thursday, with no other significance.”


“Nunez is in good condition.” He underwent rehabilitation during the week and began training partially on the first day due to our partial return. Since then, he has been engaged in full training.


When questioned about the progress of Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Diogo Jota’s recoveries, he stated that starting from next week, they would gradually participate in parts of team training and eventually full team training. The course of action regarding their involvement will be determined based on their progress.


“They are in close proximity, but they have not yet arrived. None of them have even come close to participating in team training.” However, they all take action, which is a wonderful thing.



Klopp was also inquired about Stefan Bajcetic’s advancement in his extended physical recovery and whether the No.43 has been able to utilize the time on the sidelines advantageously in other aspects.


“In terms of football intelligence, he is naturally gifted, so I don’t believe he has lost any of his abilities.” “However, rhythm is a distinct concept,” he responded.


“He is currently undergoing partial training with the U21s and will begin full training with them next week. This is because our team is constantly playing matches, so we have limited time for training.” Subsequently, he will participate in our training program. That is the intended course of action, and afterwards, we will assess the situation.


However, the youngster had physical growth, developed some muscle mass, and now appears aesthetically pleasing. Conor Bradley quickly recovered after a prolonged period of unconsciousness. Given his intelligence, I anticipate that he will manage well. However, my knowledge is limited. I have never experienced such a prolonged injury throughout that particular age range.


“He definitely watched a substantial amount of football.” He did not play with us consistently at present, but he did play earlier in the season. I inadvertently overlooked that fact, but, he did remember, and subsequently, everything took a turn for the worse.


“However, he is now on the verge of returning, and I am genuinely delighted for him and pleased for all of us.”
