He can be a surefire starter on the Emirates on Sunday if match, however chatting with reporters on the AXA Coaching Centre on Friday, Klopp admitted he’s a doubt.
“A bit aspect story, which you in all probability didn’t know: I don’t know if Darwin is offered or not,” the supervisor stated.
“As a result of Darwin had, after 20 minutes, someone stepped on his foot. It was very painful after the sport.
“He solely took [his] boot off after the sport, as a result of he didn’t need to see earlier than. He knew there was one thing.
“So he left the stadium in a boot – and it was not a soccer boot.
“Nothing broke, X-ray clear, however swollen. We’ve to see if we will get his foot again right into a boot or not, as a result of everyone knows that takes time.
