    Lfc rumour
    The Red midfielder was substituted in the first half of the Champions League semi final match against Roma on Tuesday.

    Chamberlain rushed in with a slide tackle to halt an attack carried by former Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov on the flank. The former Arsenal man was stretchered off the pitch after the scene as he was unable to stand on his feet.

    Diagnosis has revealed Oxlade-Chamberlain have suffered a knee ligament damage and won't be fit for the rest of the season and the World Cup to be held in Russia.



    “Absolutely devastated to have picked up this injury at such a crucial time in the season,” Oxlade-Chamberlain wrote on Instagram.

    “Gutted I won’t be able to play any further part now in our Champions League run for Liverpool, and also the World Cup with England. But now it’s all about supporting the boys and getting behind them.

    “I know we have what it takes to do something special in this tournament.

    “I’m going to give everything I have to make sure I’m back as quickly as possible.

    The midfielder also spoke of the events outside the stadium on Tuesday, which left a Liverpool fan in a critical condition having been attacked by Roma fans

    “However, this all pales in comparison to how the family of the Liverpool fan badly hurt before last night’s game must be feeling. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones.

    “Thank you for all your kind words, messages and support. I’ll see you soon.”

    However Liverpool FC can confirm Oxlade-Chamberlain injury but offered no specific recovery time.

    “Liverpool FC can confirm Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 2017-18 season is over for both club and country,” it said.

    “The extent of the injury means Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss the remainder of the campaign for Liverpool, as well as the World Cup finals in Russia with England.

    “The 24-year-old was assessed by the club’s medical team at Melwood on Wednesday morning and no specific timescale is being placed upon his return to action at this stage.

    “However, Oxlade-Chamberlain will now begin a rehabilitation programme to enable him to reach full fitness again as soon as possible, returning to action next season.”
