Liverpool will be without Naby Keita for this weekend's Champions League final against Tottenham after an injury to the midfielder.

Keita missed the final weeks of the Premier League season after picking up an injury in the adductor in the first match of the semi-final of the Champions League against Barcelona.

The central midfielder traveled with his teammates to Marbella for a warm-weather training camp prior to the final. But Jurgen Klopp confirmed Tuesday that he would not be fit enough to perform in Madrid.

& # 39; There is no chance for Naby, but he is progressing well, & # 39; Klopp said.

But the Reds have been boosted by the news that Roberto Firmino will return for the confrontation with Wanda Metropolitano.

The Brazilian did not play in the last four games of his match after a groin injury.

He trained the last few days alongside the rest of Klopp's team and now it has been confirmed that he will be fit to play.

& # 39; Bobby was part of the training last week and will participate again tomorrow and he looks good so he will be part of the final that I know for sure. & # 39;

When he recovered from two near-misses as the Champions League manager and tried to get lucky for the third time this weekend, Klopp said: & I don't want to blame my other team – I love them all – but I have never been part of a final with a better team, that's true.

& # 39; Our boys combine potential with attitude in the best way I have ever seen. After Barcelona (the comeback of the 4-0 semifinal at Anfield), nobody believes in this team more than the team itself. We really wanted it. & # 39;
