Liver­pool’s Lal­lana out for two months

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Liver­pool will be with­out mid­fielder Adam Lal­lana for "a cou­ple of months" due to a thigh in­jury, the English Premier League club an­nounced on Fri­day. The Eng­land in­ter­na­tional, 29, sus­tained the in­jury dur­ing Liver­pool's friendly match against Atletico Madrid in Mu­nich on Wed­nes­day. "This is cer­tainly not news we would have wanted," man­ager Jur­gen Klopp told the Liver­pool web­site. "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. Beyond that we will mon­i­tor and wait and see. He is a boy with a world­class 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."

He stands to miss Liver­pool's two-legged Cham­pi­ons League play-off against Hof­fen­heim as well as league games against Wat­ford, Crys­tal Palace, Arse­nal, Manch­ester City, Burn­ley and Le­ices­ter City.
