Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz has revealed that he will be fit for the start of next season.The Swiss international has not appeared for the Reds since the Worthington Cup triumph over Manchester United in March but he now insists that he may be ready for first-team action in just a fortnight.
Henchoz said: Everything is good. I hope to use these 10 days of training with my old club, Neuchatel Xamax, to be able to get 100% fit again. My aim is to be available for the Swiss national team's two matches against Albania and Russia on June 7 and 11. If everything goes well from now until June 3, the date when the national team reassembles, I'll be a part of the selection."
Henchoz's good news may lead the Reds to abandon a move for Auxerre star Jean-Alain Boumsong.
