A number of Liverpool fans believe that Thiago is still set to be ruled out for a lengthy period despite Jurgen Klopp insisting that the 30-year-old won’t miss the rest of the season through injury.
The Reds cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, beating Shrewsbury Town at Anfield after initially falling behind.
There was a mix of youth and experience on the pitch for Liverpool but Thiago was unavailable as he continues to recover from a hip problem.
As stated by Paul Joyce on Twitter, Klopp has said the rumour isn’t true and that Thiago is now beginning rehab on his injury, claiming: “Neither March nor end of the season is in my mind.”

Despite Klopp’s reassurances, many Liverpool fans were still fearing the worst, given that the Spain midfielder has been often troubled by injury since coming to the club in 2020. Here’s a flavour of the “worrying” reaction to Joyce’s tweet:
“Sick of this honestly“
“Definitely out until Feb 28th“
“I know Klopp is lying“
“So that’s him done for the season then“
“Omg he’s out until next season“
“Better than feared but no time limit is still worrying“
