Adam Bogdan’s season is over after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury while in action for Wigan at the weekend.
The 29-year-old left Anfield for a season-long loan in the summer but will now return to Liverpool for his rehabilitation.
Commenting on the news, Bogdan said: “I have just received the result of my MRI scan, which showed that I tore my ACL in my right knee.
“It will be a lengthy recovery. I am sure I will return stronger.”
An anterior cruciate ligament injury is the over-stretching or tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. It’s the second strongest ligament in the knee and stabilises the joint, connecting the thigh bone (femur) and the leg bone (tibia).
Bogdan, who signed for Liverpool on a free transfer in July 2015, is likely to be out of action for around 9 months.
