(Video) Watch: Jurgen Klopp give worrying update on Thiago’s hamstring injury
After Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara was substituted in the second half due to a hamstring injury, Jurgen Klopp seemed to hint that he might be out for a long time.
The Spaniard joins Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the middle of the park, it provides the German with an even more limited set of options.
A long-term concern for the former Bayern Munich player may very well cause a situation similar to 2020/21 where emergency reinforcements are needed, as the manager has previously acknowledged a further signing in the summer window would be possible if injuries began to pile up.
Although the necessities of the squad may force Klopp to abandon that mentality once more, we’d have prefer to avoid it given the tendency to favor patience with the notion of acquiring excellent, top-of-the-list additions (whether it on loan or a permanent transfer) when they become available.
