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.
