Jurgen Klopp has revealed that injured Alisson Becker will miss Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.
The Reds number one Goalkeeper, picked up a muscle injury in training, before Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea, in the FA Cup.
Klopp is not sure how long Alisson will be out for, but stated that, “for sure” he will miss Saturday’s Premier League match against Bournemouth, and their clash with Atletico, on Wednesday.
Klopp said in his pre-match Press Conference, ahead of their home tie against the Cherries that: “Alisson is out.
“He picked up an injury in training before the Chelsea game. It was a little incident, we thought it was nothing.
“The plan was he was going to be on the bench for the Chelsea game, but we thought “oh, come on, there is no need to take the risk”, so we left him out of the squad.
“He had a scan the next day, and they found something. So now he is out. We will see, next week for sure. Next week for sure, and then we will see [from there].”
Alisson is considered one of the best Goalkeepers in the world, and will be sorely missed, as the Reds look to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Atletico, next week.
