Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Sheyi Ojo is not yet fully fit.
Klopp confirmed that Ojo is back training, but not in line for first team football right now as he works his way back to full fitness.
“Ojo is a very young boy and he needs a lot of training,” Klopp said.
“He’s not injured any more but he needs training, training, training and as much game time as possible.
“We thought it made absolute sense that for the next few weeks he’s with the second team for the training and for the games. Anything we could do would be too early for him.”
“He needs to get a rhythm and come back in shape. He’s not match fit so he needs to collect minutes with the under-23s.”
