Jurgen Klopp provides Oxlade-Chamberlain injury update


The Liverpool midfielder suffered an ankle injury in the Reds' Club World Cup triumph over Flamengo on Saturday

Liverpool will be facing a busy festive period without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain following an ankle injury he picked up in the Club World Cup final.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the England international suffered a ligament damage after falling awkwardly on his ankle during the clash.

Chambelain had to be limped off in the 75th minute, after a stretcher was initially called to the scene where he laid down on the pitch and was being attended by the Reds' physio.

The 26-year-old, although later joined the Reds in celebrations at full-time, but was on crutches and had his right foot in a protective boot.

Speaking on his post-match conference, Klopp played down any major concern about Chambo's injury but confirmed the midfielder had suffered ligament damage to his ankle.

"Hopefully it is not too serious," the German said.

"Even he was smiling at the end which helped us all. I spoke a second ago with him.

"If you see it already on television again, for us in the game it was not so easy, he showed me now the video and when he’s landing he gets the kick and rolls over.

"He feels OK. We will see. Of course, not perfect – far away from being perfect – but we will see if it’s a ligament stretch only or is ruptured, partly ruptured or whatever, we have to see.

"That's a big shadow again but that's how it is in contact sport. He seems to be OK."
