Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that captain Jordan Henderson's return date remains uncertain, but that he could play again this season.

Henderson has been sidelined for the past three months with a foot injury and could miss the rest of the season, but Klopp remains optimistic about the situation.

“It is too early to say," he told the club's official website.

“Next season is the latest moment, of course, but anything can happen. We stay positive because he is strong. The moment someone gives him the green light he will be back in a second because of his attitude and character.

“I am not thinking about the start of pre-season but that would be the latest moment he is back. We have not made a final judgment for this season.

“We don’t know if he will back tomorrow in training or next week but because it is Jordan and he has a really high fitness level, even if it is just swimming, we know we can think about him immediately when he is ready.”

The last time Henderson played for the Reds was in the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on February 11.
