Diogo Jota‘s injury has been the talk of the town this week after it emerged the in-form star would be out for around two months.
And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed the news that the Portuguese star would miss a significant chunk of games in the coming weeks
However, Klopp also revealed that Kostas Tsimikas, who was also brought in this summer, had suffered a similar problem in the 1-1 draw in Denmark in midweek.
“It's worse than we first thought and better than we then thought,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“All the potential surgeons had a look on it, no surgery needed. But he will be out for a while. We don't know exactly but one-and-a-half, two months. We don't know exactly. It's pretty similar with Kostas Tsimikas, by the way. Unbelievable.
“It was first after the game. We saw the situation when he got it; him himself, nobody would have thought something happened there.
“We got him off the pitch and he said ‘I feel a little bit' and next day, scans and then a surgeon has to look at it.

“That's how we do it, different information. In the end, it's strange but we were happy that we heard the final diagnosis.”
