Alisson out for next few weeks, says Klopp

Alisson out for next few weeks, says Klopp

Liverpool's medical staff continue to monitor the calf injury the Brazil global sustained in the first half of the Premier League win against Norwich on Friday, but there are concerns that Alisson may be absent until late September or early October, a period that would force him out of the first Champions League group game.

Virgil van Dijk believes goalkeeper Adrián San Miguel's extensive Premier League experience will help him easily adjust to replacing the injured Alisson at Liverpool.

The Brazilian goalkeeper is facing a number of weeks on the sidelines after being forced off in the first half of the 4-1 win.

Now, Liverpool may have found a short-term solution for the goalkeeping crisis at Anfield as the Reds have been linked with a move for former Fulham and Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Yet while Andy Lonergan is set to join Liverpool to plug the gap in their keeper line-up, Klopp has offered warm words of support for 20-year-old Kelleher, as he closes in on a return to action after a wrist problem sustained during pre-season.

And Klopp has indicated that Lonergan will be among the Liverpool substitutes at Besiktas Park. If Alisson is set to miss 6-8 weeks of football, he will most likely not feature in the games against both those London clubs.

On July 28, Jennifer Lopez and Rodriguez's daughters interrupted ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball to wish him a happy 44th birthday. Police are reportedly investigating the incident in order to find the crooks who busted into the sports star's rental.


Asked if Lonergan will be on the bench on Wednesday, he replied: "I think so".

However, an otherwise positive start to the new campaign for Jurgen Klopp's men was soured somewhat by a blow on the injury-front.

"I don't want to make (an) exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure". "We'll see over the next days what the outcome is going to be".

I saw already like "six weeks" and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career.

"We will be able to make good connections with him and I think a lot of the lads have made bonds with him already because he's such a good lad off the pitch".
