Jurgen Klopp Confirms Timeframe On Alisson’s Recovery

Timeframe Alisson’s Recovery

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has allayed fears about Alisson Becker’s fitness and insists his first-choice goalkeeper is only out of action for a few weeks.

The Brazil international was subbed off towards the end of the first half in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday with a calf injury.

Reports emerged shortly afterwards claiming Alisson faced up to two months on the sidelines.

It was then claimed Alisson could miss a large chunk of the season but Klopp has refuted those suggestions.

“[It’s] not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while,” Klopp told the club’s official website.

“I don’t want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday [Super Cup] for sure, so now we have to see. It takes a while, it takes a couple of weeks for sure, and we have to see.

“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.”

Alisson’s injury opens up the door for Adrian to get a run of games in the first-team after making a surprise move to Anfield earlier this month.
