Liverpool have more players on international duty than any other Premier League side, and manager Jurgen Klopp is clearly nervous about their absence.
The German has confirmed he’s asked those away with their countries for text message reassurance that they haven’t injured themselves, the Echo reports.
“I told them that I want some messages and always a little check-up – ‘I’m fine, it’s OK’ – after the games especially,” he said.
“You can see a few games but you can’t see all the games, so you have to get all the information you can get and that’s what we want.
“Hopefully we get [some] very positive information and they come back healthy and we can start the finish of the season.”
Klopp, being a German working in England, would have kept a close eye on the Three Lions’ excellent comeback win last night – especially as four of his players featured.
Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana put in shifts for England, while Emre Can was used at right-back for the Germans. Thankfully, all came through unscathed.
Elsewhere, Dejan Lovren played for Croatia against Hungary, Jordon Ibe was sent off for England Under-21s and Martin Skrtel featured for the Slovaks.
There’s one more round of international games for Liverpool’s players to contend with before they’ll head back to Melwood and meet up with Klopp and the players who’ve spent the past week in Tenerife.
