The new English champion coach Jurgen Klopp announced on Friday that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will no longer play this season due to a knee injury.
Two days ago in Liverpool’s 3-1 win against Brighton, Henderson was the scorer but limped off the field at the end of the match.
Henderson will not need surgery to solve the problem, according to current knowledge.
“It’s not great, but it’s the best we could hear,” Jurgen Klopp said on Friday, adding that “the England international should be ready by the start of the new season, which will start a little later than usual because the pandemic is caused by the spread. coronavirus extended the current season.”
“It was a horrible moment when he collapsed and had to leave the field. Hendo is an animal, he fights for all of us. He tolerates pain really well. At that moment he knew something was wrong. It killed our mood,” Klopp described a situation where everyone became aware of the severity of the injury.
However, after the game with Chelsea, the injury will not prevent Henderson from being the one who will lift the trophy intended for the English champions on July 22, which they have been waiting for in Liverpool for 30 years.”We all sympathize with him. He deserves to lift the trophy and he will do it,” Klopp confirmed to the club’s official website.
