Jürgen Klopp has provided a brief update in relation to the injury status of first choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
The 26-year-old had to be replaced during Friday night’s 4-1 thumping of Norwich City after sustaining a calf injury and there have been concerns that he could be missing for a couple of months. However, the Liverpool manager doesn’t want to speculate further about how long Alisson could be missing for even though his return isn’t going to be any time soon.
Klopp said: “I don’t want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not tomorrow for sure, so now then we have to see.
“It takes a while, it takes a couple 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.”
Free signing Adrian (32), who was released by West Ham at the end of last season, will deputise for Alisson while another free agent Andy Lonergan (35) has agreed terms on a short-term deal with the Reds having being part of Liverpool’s squad during pre-season.
