Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has named Nathaniel Clyne in a travelling squad for the first time this season ahead of Wednesday’s tie away to Porto in the Champions League.
The 26-year-old right-back has missed the entire season with a back injury and despite undergoing surgery in December was included in the club’s Champions League squad for the knockout stages.
With Liverpool not set to play again until they welcome West Ham United on 24 February Klopp has named a 25-man squad for the trip to Portugal which will then move onto a four-day camp in Marbella, which would explain Clyne’s sudden inclusion.

There are also places in the squad for Emre Can, who will miss the game against Porto due to a one-match Champions League suspension, and Joe Gomez, who has missed the last two outings through injury. Clyne has not played competitively for Liverpool since the final day of last season when the Reds beat Middlesbrough 3-0 to secure qualification for this season’s Champions League campaign.
Signed from Southampton in July 2015, the Englishman had established himself as Liverpool’s first-choice right-back and was a reliable name for Klopp.
His absence has seen the rise of Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the right-side of Liverpool’s defence, but Clyne’s eventual return will be seen as a positive for the squad.
“Get in!” – Liverpool fans react to Clyne’s return
Clyne’s inclusion in the 25-man squad came as a shock for Liverpool’s fans, though many were happy to see in the England international back fit.
