Defender Andrew Robertson has suffered a knee injury and will miss Liverpool’s next game. This will be the game of the 2nd round of the Champions League with Ajax, which will take place on Tuesday, September 13 (beginning at 22:00).
“Robbo is not 100% ready. He felt something at the very end of the match [с «Наполи»] – at the 93rd or some such minute. The next day, he realized that something was really wrong. I would say that he will return at least after a pause for international matches.
Also Curtis is not ready to play. Fabio has been training and he will be able to take the field against Ajax. I don’t think Naby Keita will go to the national team. He is expected to return sometime in October. Oxlade-Chamberlain has a similar situation. Therefore, these guys are not in the squad for the Champions League matches, ”admitted Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp.
At the moment, the Merseysiders injured eight players. They are Jordan Henderson, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Quivin Kelleher, Calvin Ramsey, Naby Keita and Andrew Robertson.
Earlier, Klopp spoke about the consequences for the team of defeat from Napoli (1:4) in the 1st round of the Champions League.
