Liverpool manager gives update on injured Andy Robertson


Jurgen Klopp provided a recent injury update on Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson. Robertson has been in the sidelines since October after dislocating his shoulder while on international duty with Scotland.

With Kostas Tsimikas, the fellow left-back, also currently injured, the recovery of the 29-year-old Robertson has become an even more significant concern. However, in his pre-Newcastle press conference today, Klopp acknowledges that Robertson is still ‘not close’ to making a return.

Klopp said: “Robbo still needs more range in his shoulder. It was a big surgery, he’s still not close. He’s in training and can do a lot without using the arm properly. Obviously good, but it shows us that there’s a long way to go. For sure I think for January he has to get closer and closer.”

Klopp also provided information on when Liverpool supporters can anticipate the return of Alexis Mac Allister.

“Macca we will see what he can do today, if he can step into team training or not. The decision is not done yet. We will see.”

This update from Klopp is somewhat anticipated. Robertson’s return around the end of January was always a possibility. Nonetheless, it’s a bit frustrating. If Tsimikas were ready, the situation wouldn’t be a concern.

An injured Tsimikas creating headache for Liverpool

Tsimikas was in superb form before his injury, and his performances had effectively mitigated the impact of Robertson’s absence. However, with Tsimikas potentially facing an extended period on the sidelines, there’s a heightened sense of concern.

Rumors circulate that Liverpool might address this situation after exploring the transfer market in January. With Fulham’s Antonee Robinson being a key name in the headlines. However, for the time being, the Reds will have to depend on Joe Gomez to step in at left-back.
