Klopp Makes Worrying Statement About Key Liverpool Star’s Injury

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he hopes that Fabinho’s injury is not as bad as he fears after the Brazilian international was substituted in the first half of the 1-1 draw against Napoli last night.

The 26-year-old twisted his ankle in a collision with Dejan Lovren and was taken off after just 19 minutes of the game. When asked about the issue in his press conference after the match, Klopp was pessimistic:


Fabinho was not subbed straight away despite picking up the injury. He continued for a few minutes before he was replaced by Georginio Wijnaldum.

If he is out for an extended period, it couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Reds, with up to nine matches coming in December. The Brazilian has become a key player for the Reds and he will be a huge miss.

Like Klopp, supporters will be hoping that Fabinho will only be missing for weeks instead of months, but everything will depend on the results of a scan today.
