Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for the remaining four games of the 2019/20 Premier League season with a knee injury.
The England international, Jordan Henderson scored in the 3-1 win against Brighton on Wednesday before limping off later on in the match.
Klopp reported that the captain should be fit again for the delayed start of the 2020/21 season. However, Henderson, who has played a key role in this season will not require surgery.
“It’s not cool but it’s the best we could get”. Said head-coach Klopp.
“It was an awful moment when he went down and left the pitch. Hendo is an animal. He fights with everything. So he can really deal well with pain. At this moment he knew something had happened. It was a complete mood killer”. Added Klopp.
The Reds ended a 30-year wait for a top-flight title last month and Klopp says the injury will not stop the midfielder from lifting the Premier League trophy at the club’s final home match against Chelsea come July 22nd.
“Everybody felt for him. He deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy. There is no surgery needed. That’s the good news and all the rest we can make our decisions. But Hendo will lift the trophy”.
In a social media post, Henderson added that his “rehabilitation will immediately start” and he will “be working hard to be back to full fitness in weeks in order to be fully ready for the start of the new season”.
