A Liverpool player won’t be playing again this season, says Jurgen Klopp

Joel Matip, a defender for Liverpool, will be sidelined for the rest of liverpool’s season.

The defender hasn’t played for the past four months after rupturing his ACL during a 4-3 victory over Fulham on December 3.

Matip has been recovering ever since he required surgery. The 32-year-old is back running on the grass at the AXA Training Centre, despite the fact that it seems unlikely he will play in Liverpool’s Premier League title run-in.

The Liverpool manager has some unfavorable information for his defender. Joel

His manager reports that he is currently moving very quickly in the direction of being fully fit.
Manager Klopp made this statement prior to the Reds’ game against Sheffield United on Thursday night at Anfield.

Joel [is running], and he detests it! But the good news is that he can now run again,” the manager said.

It was extremely painful for him at first, but he overcame it and is now pain-free, so in my opinion, this is the best time since he was hurt. The season isn’t long enough for him, though, because that all takes time.

Given that Matip’s contract is set to expire at the end of this season, it’s likely that this is his last game with the Reds.

Should that prove to be the case, by the time his time at Anfield ends, he will have appeared in 201 games and taken home six major trophies.

In contrast, Andy Robertson should be available to play against Sheffield United.
The left-back’s ankle injury from Scotland’s 1-0 loss to Northern Ireland last week kept him out of the starting lineup for Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Brighton.

Klopp gave the Liverpool players some encouraging news.
Klopp gave an otherwise positive update on injuries elsewhere during his pre-Sheffield United press conference, mentioning that Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, and Curtis Jones were on the verge of returning.

Liverpool must defeat Sheffield United in their match on Thursday after victories over Manchester City and Arsenal on Wednesday.
