Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has been included in Liverpool's 24-man squad for this weekend's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

It could be the last time the Germany international, who has regained full fitness having been sidelined with a back injury since late March, features for the club as his contract expires next month and he has so far turned down all offers of an extension.

Youngsters Curtis Jones, Nat Phillips and Rafael Camacho are also included in the party.

The Reds trained at Melwood on Thursday ahead of their scheduled flight to Kiev from Liverpool John Lennon Airport in the afternoon.

They will hold an hour-long open training session in the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium on Friday evening after Jurgen Klopp and two players have undertaken their pre-match press conference.

Guardiola fined by FA over yellow ribbon badge

Pep Guardiola has been fined £20,000 for wearing a yellow ribbon on the touchline, the Football Association has announced.

The Manchester City manager has also been warned as to his future conduct by the governing body after accepting a charge of "wearing a political message".

Guardiola has argued wearing the symbol, in support of imprisoned politicians in Catalonia, is not political but accepts it is in breach of the FA's regulations.

Catalonia-born Guardiola has not apologised but said he will stop wearing the ribbon during games in order to observe - rather than respect - the rules.

Guardiola will continue to wear the ribbon for pre- and post-match media commitments, as is permitted. The FA's kit and advertising regulations refer specifically to the technical area during games.
