Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson is recovering from a mysterious bite which caused a nasty infection to the Scotsman's hand.
The 25-year-old was forced to undergo surgery, after being infected by a spider or a mosquito, leaving the Champions League winner unable to take part in the Reds' upcoming pre-season friendlies
“It’s not a massive problem apart from throw-ins!" the German joked.
Klopp quashed fears over any long-term repercussions from the bite, insisting:
Robertson is a crucial part of Klopp's attacking system, providing 11 assists over the course of the 2018/19 Premier League season.
Liverpool are set to fly out to America to compete in the Western Union Cup, as the squad prepares for the grueling Premier League season ahead of them.
The Reds' boss will be hoping that Robertson is fit to face the German's former team, Borussia Dortmund, in their friendly at the Notre Dame Stadium on July 19 as part of their USA tour.
