Roberto Firmino returns to Liverpool training ahead of Champions League final

Forward Roberto Firmino has given Liverpool a Champions League final boost by returning to training.

The Brazil international has missed the last three matches with a thigh problem but was able to take part in the first session of the squad’s pre-final camp in Marbella.

Firmino was the first player to arrive on the south coast of Spain having attended slightly earlier than his team-mates for some individual sessions with strength and rehabilitation staff.

Liverpool said his reintroduction into full team training “will be carefully managed under their supervision, with specialised programmes planned over the coming days”.

The 26-man squad is spending six days in Marbella before returning to England to finalise preparations for their June 1 meeting with Tottenham in Madrid.

Included in that group is Naby Keita, who continues his rehabilitation from a serious groin problem suffered almost three weeks ago and is not in contention for the final.

Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has the chance to set a new record if he is selected in the XI to face Tottenham in Madrid.

Should that happen the 20-year-old will become the first player aged under 21 to start consecutive finals in Europe’s premier club competition.

The previous youngest was AC Milan’s Christian Panucci with AC Milan in 1994 and 1995.

Sadio Mane says Liverpool have put the disappointment of missing out on the Premier League title behind them (Martin Rickett/PA).

Striker Sadio Mane insists the Premier League title near-miss is now forgotten and they are looking forward to going one better than a year ago when they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the final.

“It didn’t happen this time but we have the experience (of a title race) and now we are in a final, which is another target that’s very important for us,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“The league is behind us, Manchester City did so well and for sure they deserved it. We tested them, but we have to say congratulations and now we look forward to the final.

“We have some experience about it and we know how it is because we were there last year and were unlucky we didn’t win, although Real were very good.

“We are feeling really positive and for us it would be a big thing (to win). It is exciting and we want to win it, for sure – everybody knows.

“We’re not here to think twice about it, we’re just going to go there to try to win it.”
