Ibrahima Konate appears to be in positive shape as he recovers from a recent hamstring injury, using the break to build up his fitness in Paris.
Konate missed the final two Liverpool games before the September international break due to injury, but was initially called up to the France squad.
Despite Didier Deschamps’ optimism, though, the centre-back was soon replaced by Jean-Clair Tobido, having “insufficiently recovered.”
He still returned to France, for a mid-season holiday in Paris, which saw him provide an update on his fitness on Saturday.
On his Instagram story, Konate shared a brief video while out on a run, suggesting he is close to being able to return to training with Liverpool.
Hopes could have increased over Konate’s involvement at Molineux, with Klopp having already explained that his No. 5 was expected back after the break.
Whether Konate will come straight back into the starting lineup will depend on how he responds upon rejoining training.
“Both centre-halves played an exceptional game – with different jobs, to be honest,” the manager said.
They could, therefore, be retained against Wolves before normal order is resumed in the following games.
