Adam Lallana's return 'fantastic for us', insists Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
England midfielder has been sidelined with a thigh injury since pre-season and is expected to return next month.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana could return from a thigh injury after the conclusion of the next international break in early November, the Premier League club's manager Jurgen Klopp has said.
Lallana, who joined Liverpool from Southampton in July 2014, last played during the team's pre-season loss to Atletico Madrid in August. Klopp said the 29-year-old midfielder had returned to their training ground on Monday to continue his recovery.

"It's absolutely good news. I cannot say now, but maybe after the next international break he could be back," Klopp told the club website.
"It would be fantastic for us, of course. Everybody knows what kind of a quality player he is."
Liverpool are eighth in the league and travel to Slovenia to face Maribor in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday.
