Naby Keita admitted he is "not 100 per cent" but reassured his Guinea team-mates he expects to be ready for their Africa Cup of Nations opener against Madagascar on June 22.
Guinea disputed Liverpool's initial diagnosis and the 24-year-old made a quicker recovery than expected, and national team coach Paul Put indicated Keita will be involved in Sunday's friendly against Egypt.
Keita told Foot 224: "I'm going to work now. I am not 100 per cent but when I was in Liverpool, I started training with the ball.
"As I'm here now I'm going to train with the team to see.
"To reassure the Guinean fans, the coach and the team-mates, I think I'll be ready for the first match."
Before his injury, Keita made 25 Premier League appearances in his first season at Liverpool, scoring two goals while competing for a place with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho.
Ex-Kenya coach Put said Liverpool took some persuading to release the former RB Leipzig playmaker, saying: "I put a lot of pressure on Liverpool to [send him] as soon as possible.
"In the end, I said that if Naby does not come now, it will be difficult to put [him on] the list for the Africa Cup of Nations.
"He said he will play against Egypt."
