Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Fabinho is fast recovering from injury and should be fit to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Liverpool will compete with Real Madrid on May 28 for the Champions League title but the show down seems to have been disrupted to an injury setback for his Brazilian star.

Fabinho was taken off before the break in Liverpool’s 2-1 midweek Premier League win over Aston Villa with the former Brazilian missing the FA Cup final as a result.

However, despite the concern over his fitness, Klopp stated his confidence over the 28-year-old being fit to anchor the Reds midfield in the French capital.

“He will definitely be back for the Champions League final”, as per reports from BBC Sport.

“He is OK, he’s a professional. He’s not happy about the injury, that’s clear. But, he’s absolutely OK.”

Fabinho is not expected to feature in Liverpool’s final two Premier League games of the season, ahead of the final, as they look to chase down Manchester City in the title race.

Klopp’s side wrap up their domestic campaign against Southampton and Wolves before heading to Paris for their fifth Champions League final under Klopp.
