Thiago Alcantara is out of injury

SOCCER

Team manager Jürgen Klopp of English soccer top club Liverpool FC will have to do without Thiago again,

The former Munich player will miss at least the League Cup at Norwich City (Tuesday) and the Premier League at FC Brentford (Saturday) due to his calf injury, Klopp’s assistant Pepijn Lijnders confirmed.

Thiago was injured at the weekend during the Reds’ 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Further examinations will show exactly how long the 30-year-old will be out.

“It’s a shame because he has been coming in better and better recently,” Lijnders said of the injury.

Thiago appeared in five of Liverpool’s six competitive matches this season. In his first season, he only appeared in 30 of 52 games. He was out twice for long periods due to a knee injury and a corona illness.
