Jurgen Klopp has admitted that no decision has been made over Jordan Henderson's possibility of featuring for Liverpool in the Europa League final against Sevilla on 18 May. The Reds face the Spanish outfit at St Jakob-Park, Basel and the German manager is yet to decide on his starting lineup following the Anfield club's 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion on the final match of the Premier League campaign.
The England international last featured in the Europa League clash against Borussia Dortmund and came on as a second half substitute against West Brom at The Hawthorns. Klopp explained the league clash was the only chance for Henderson to prove his fitness and revealed the midfielder came through unscathed after the match.
"It was the only chance to have a chance for Wednesday. I said from the beginning that I don't want to force the situation by saying 'come on Hendo, try'," Klopp explained, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
"It's his knee. He didn't feel anything in the last few sessions and it's clear we'd try today for half-an-hour or so."
"Everybody could see there are no issues with the injury, and that's good. I haven't made a decision about Wednesday yet but it's good to have him back."
Danny Ings made his comeback into the squad against the Baggies after a long spell on the sidelines. Meanwhile, Divock Origi, who has not featured since he picked an ankle injury against Everton has trained at Melwood for the Europa League final. Klopp has ruled out Ings' involvement in Basel, but hinted the Belgium international could feature against Sevilla.
"The players who weren't here trained this morning. (First-team coach) Pep Lijnders was not with us in the hotel last night as he made a session with all the other boys.
"Also there was (Joao Carlos) Teixeira, who had a back problem, and Divock Origi, who has trained with the team normally."
On Ings, Klopp said, "He has no chance of being in the team for Wednesday, but I think he is the happiest person in the stadium at present because after this long time, playing Premier League football was nice to watch and yes, everything OK."
