Fabinho Massive Injury
In the match of the 5th round of the Champions’ League group stage, English Liverpool played with the Italian Napoli with a score of 1-1. During the game, one of the key players Fabinho was injured on the 19th minute after a collision with Hirving Lozano and then was replaced by a player Wijnaldum. A draw with Napoli in the match against Salzburg was extremely important.
The Reds will have to play away and snatch victory to leave the group with the first place in the table. Liverpool had 10 points, Napoli 9, Salzburg 7, Gen 1 so it wasn’t easy for Liverpool.
The Ancelotti team can’t win the 7th match in all tournaments and will be hosted by Genk. Both matches took place on December 10th.
Jurgen Klopp admits injury could be ‘massive’
The Reds coach comments that he isn’t sure about the seriousness of the injury but doesn’t deny that the player can skip games until the end of the season. According to press reports, the club didn’t talk about the nature of the injury.
In the Premier League current season, Fabinho played 12 matches and chalked up one goal and one assist.
Speaking about the injury, the 26-year-old midfielder limped in the first half and received an ankle injury, now the player is undergoing treatment. The coach also added about the situation: “It’s early and we all hope it’s not too serious but it’s pretty painful, you don’t want to have pain around the ankle.” Enrique Fabio was about to leave the field.
“He has pain, which is not good. He couldn’t continue. I hope it’s not that serious.”
The Brazilian will miss 7 matches, including a derby with Everton, but the Liverpool team still has won Everton with a score 5-2, taking the home match at Anfield. At the moment, the Merseyside leads in Premier League and shows incredible results in a table with 43 points, 14 won, 1 draw and 0 losses.
Klopp was always modest and didn’t expect that he would easily finish with the 1st place in the Champions League table, while having class players such as Salah, Van Dyck, Mane, Firmino and others. Jürgen replied to reporters:
“If we have ambitions in the Champions League, we must show that in Salzburg and until then, we are ambitious teams in the Premier League. There are a couple of games to play until then and we have to be focused on them. And no doubt, we could win.”
We wish good luck to the coach and the Reds team to overcome the injury difficulties and the Premier League and the Champions League games to achieve the goals that the Merseysiders have set for.
