Just when they thought their preseason would end without a major injury, it happened, and turned out to be worse than initially thought.
This is certainly not news we would have wanted. Unfortunately, the damage is such that it will likely mean Adam is out for a couple of months not weeks, so I think we can pretty much rule him out of August and September
Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s official website, talking about Adam Lallana. The 29-year-old England international got injured in the Audi Cup match against Atletico Madrid in Munich midweek, and according to reports he will stay sidelined for even more than two months, up to three.
We will monitor and wait and see. He is a boy with a world-class attitude to everything professionally and he has always come back in good time from injury setbacks since I have been here, so we will see
the Liverpool manager also said.
Lallana’s thigh injury will cost him a good number of games, starting with Liverpool’s debut in the Premier League at Watford, and of course the Champions League playoffs against Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, later this month.
