Jurgen Klopp provides update on Alisson’s injury
Liverpool keeper, Alisson Becker suffered an injury in the Premier League season opener against Norwich City on Friday night. The Brazilian keeper came off with a calf injury the 39th minute and had to be replaced by new signing, Adrian.
Reports over the weekend suggested that Alisson could be out for 4-6 weeks but there was no official confirmation from Liverpool. Now, ahead of the UEFA Super Cup final against Chelsea, Klopp has spoken about his star.
“[It’s] Not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while. I don’t want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see. It takes a while, it takes a couple [of] weeks for sure, and we have to see,” he told Liverpool’s official website.
“I saw already like ‘six weeks’ and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career so I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now, but he is not in for the next few weeks,” Klopp added.
Alisson is likely to be out for a month and Liverpool would most probably take their time before rushing him back into the goal.
