Liverpool defender Andy Robertson revealed that the ligament damage he sustained is nothing major. He ruled himself out of the first game of the Premier League season against Norwich. He had to be stretchered off the field with scans revealing ligament damage.
“Scan suggests nothing too major but there’s some ligament damage which will need to mend,” Liverpool defender Andy Robertson wrote on Twitter. “I will be grafting every day so I can help the team again sooner rather than later.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed they were lucky that Robertson did not suffer serious ligament damage despite him being set to miss the first few weeks. The injury will pave the way for Kostas Tsimikas who only managed six minutes in his debut campaign in the Premier League.
“I think we got lucky with Andy, it could have been much worse,” Klopp said. “The footage didn’t look too well but we got lucky and it will not be too long. Before the international break [in early September], after the international break, I don’t know.”
Liverpool have been relatively quiet in the transfer window with Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig being their only acquisition. Klopp hinted that there could be a few more players on their way to Anfield.
“I am very happy with the squad I have. You can’t sign counter-pressing, the atmosphere, our anthem… There are different approaches out there, but we have no influence on that.” he added. “There might still be something happening before the end of the transfer window.”
