Liverpool star player reportedly ruled out for three months
The first half 2023/24 season can be summarised as "injury" following the way players are being ruled out for weeks because of long-term injuries either while playing for the club or country.
Liverpool is the latest club to be hit with the injury casualty most clubs are experiencing in the Premier League. The manager of the club, Jurgen Klopp confirmed in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Merseyside derby that Andy Robertson will be out for a lengthy period after picking up an injury while representing Scotland.
He said, according to advise from the parties involved on taking the decision is that Robertson should undergo surgery.
"I think the decision we go towards is surgery. There was a little chance that he could try without. But after talking to pretty much all experts, it looks like surgery will be the best thing, especially in the long term, definitely. And that means he is out for a while. Don't know exactly how long but shoulder surgery is not an easy one. From my experience, you can train pretty quickly again but not football-specific because you
have to be careful, challenges and all these kind of things. So, yeah, he will be out for a while."
He also confirmed that Cody Gakpo trained with the team but he has not decided if he will be available for the game against Everton.
