According to the latest reports, Alisson Becker’s injury is more severe than they thought. So, Jurgen Klopp will neither use it in the Premier League nor in the Champions League.
Alisson Becker will miss the fight for the Champions League quarter-final. Merseyside head coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed today that the Brazilian goalkeeper cannot play for at least a week due to a thigh injury.
This means that Alison cannot help Liverpool in the match against Bournemouth (Saturday) nor in the Champions League quarter-final match against Atletico Madrid (Wednesday).
You may have already known that Alisson got injured last Tuesday, before the match against Chelsea (0: 2) in the Association Cup. It should be noted that his substitute Adrian made a mistake at the moment of Willian’s goal.
Then there was a 0: 3 loss to Watford, ending the 44-match unbeaten streak. Merseyside have lost 0: 1 to Atletico in the first leg, and in the return match, they cannot concede a goal at Anfield.
“Some People will probably say that we are in a difficult situation. To me, this situation is more interesting than dramatic. I need to help my players get back to what we want to be.” Klopp said.
For the first time, this season – Jurgen Klopp cannot fight for the best of the month
The English Premier League has named coaches to fight for February’s best on its official website.
It is the first time in this season when Jurgen Klopp is not among the nominees. Noteworthy, that he has failed to become the best coach of the month only once. Also not among the nominees is Josep Guardiola, whose Manchester City is in second place.
Accordingly, the coaches fighting for the best coach title are Mikel Arteta (Arsenal), Sean Dyche (Burnley), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manchester United), and Chris Wilder (Sheffield United).
Klopp was named the best coach in August, September, November, December, and January. Chelsea coach Frank Lampard was awarded in October.
