It Looks Like A ‘Really Bad Injury’ For Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – Jurgen Klopp

share on:

Jurgen Klopp fears that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered “a really bad injury” during Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg with Roma at Anfield.

Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up a suspected knee problem in the early stages of the clash, and ultimately headed down the tunnel on a stretcher in the 23rd minute.

The midfielder looked in agony and speaking after the game, which Liverpool won 5-2, Klopp admitted that the prognosis was not good.

“Oxlade-Chamberlain is probably a really bad injury,” Klopp told BT Sport.

 

“If we can say that already before the scan, that’s never good news so that means for us it’s a massive blow, of course.

“We have still a few very important games to go and the squad doesn’t get bigger in the moment, so we obviously need to be creative in the next few games.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s involvement for England at the 2018 World Cup could also now be in doubt.
