Wijnaldum declare fit for Liverpool’s game against Huddersfield

Georginio Wijnaldum is fit for Liverpool’s game against Huddersfield Town on Saturday following a knee injury.

The Netherlands international missed the Reds’ defeat at Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday after sustaining a knock during the team’s final training session before the match at Wembley.

However, Wijnaldum has since returned to full training and is available for this weekend’s Anfield meeting with David Wagner’s side.

“The knee is good now,” the midfielder told Liverpoolfc.com at Melwood on Thursday.

“I was unlucky that in training before the game I had a kick on it, it was in a duel. Milner tried to shoot and I tried to block but I was a little bit late with my block, he’d already shot the ball and he swung his foot on the inside of my knee.

“At first it didn’t look like it was that bad, but after training I had more pain than during training and the day after, on Sunday before the game, I had a lot of pain. I could barely walk, so it was not possible to play.

“I’m still in a little bit of pain but I can play with it. I had full training yesterday and felt good so probably I can play.

“The manager decides if he’s going to put me in the first XI, but I will be available.”
