“Emre Can and James Milner Fit for Champions League final” Jurgen Klopp

With the Champions League final approaching fast, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reviewed his team fitness doubts and claimed that his injury-stricken midfielders are both fit to play in the Champions League final to be held in Kiev, Ukraine against title defenders Real Madrid.

The two midfielders are said to be Emre Can and James Milner. Can has been on the sidelines since his last Premier League game against Watford back in March and was reportedly out for the rest of the season.

Klopp, however, attest that the German international, who has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus will be an option for the Saturday final in Kiev.

James Milner, on the other hand, who has also returned to training following his muscle injury, is said to be fit.

Speaking to Liverpool official website, Klopp said: “Millie was clear [he would be fit] and Emre is a surprise.

“He [Can] told me he would come back, try this and that and then we would talk to people. We thought it would be difficult, but he came back and from the first day it was like, ‘Okay, that looks good, how do you feel?’, ‘Very good’ and then the next day ‘very good’ again.

“Now he trains completely normal. He’s a nice option and that’s why he is with us.”

Liverpool will be looking to stop two time back-to-back Champions League winners Real Madrid at Kiev on Saturday.

The Merseyiders also have quite the history in Europe being crowned Champions back in 2004 after defeating AC Milan on penalties with a comeback from 3-0 down to the Italians in Istanbul, Turkey.
