Loris Karius, after returning to full training yesterday, will have the wire support removed from his right hand as he continues in his impressive rehabilitation.
Yesterday, Liverpool’s new German goalkeeper had his first full training session since he broke his hand in pre-season. His rehabilitation has been highly impressive and, despite having surgery just a few weeks ago, he is already training and preparing to make his first competitive appearance for Liverpool.
Karius signed for Liverpool from Mainz for £4.7 million with Klopp looking to replace Simon Mignolet in goal. Injury to the German in pre-season scuppered these plans, however, and Klopp was forced to start Liverpool’s out of favour Belgian goalkeeper in the first four games of the season.
Goal’s Melissa Reddy reports that Karius will have his wire support removed today, and that by the end of September he will be back challenging for the number 1 position.
