Liverpool to wait on Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane fitness for Huddersfield

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has renewed his criticism of the Nations League, saying football doesn't need the new competition in an already packed calendar.

Klopp described the new competition as "senseless" prior to the recent worldwide break and elaborated on his opinion at a news conference on Friday afternoon.

Sadio Mane, who reportedly broke his left thumb on global duty for Senegal, underwent surgery on Wednesday, Liverpool confirmed.

"Every performance gives you belief and every win gives you belief - unfortunately we have no wins so far - but we have performed at a good level consistently over the last weeks and in training the guys look very good as well". The Nations League itself is a good idea, [but] do it in another sport because in football there is no space for it. When can we have normal things?

Jurgen Klopp has been handed a major boost with the news that Virgil Van Dijk has been declared fit for the trip to Huddersfield on Saturday evening.

Keita, meanwhile, was pictured being carried off the pitch by a team-mate during Guinea's draw against Rwanda on Tuesday after apparently suffering a hamstring injury.

"Liverpool Football Club can confirm Sadio Mane today underwent a procedure on a hand injury sustained while on global duty with Senegal. That's it, pretty much".

Now the German has followed up those comments with another stinging attack in the direction of UEFA, questioning how players can be expected to perform at their best when they have to play so many games.

The striker has scored four goals in nine appearances across all competitions, but remarkably is yet to start a Premier League fixture.

"I can tell a little story when we had our pre-match analysis meeting", he said.

"They had more possession against Tottenham, maybe people are not interested in that but it's a big step".
