Jurgen Klopp gives Andy Robertson injury update and names three Liverpool players who can provide cover
The Reds have plenty of strength in depth.
‘There was a little chance we could try without [surgery] but a lot of experts says surgery would be the best in the long term,’ said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of Saturday’s Merseyside derby.
‘In my experience you can train pretty quickly again [with this injury] but not football specific.’
Liverpool are fortunate Kostas Tsimikas represents an experienced and high-quality replacement for Robertson, but Klopp insists he is not the only player capable of filling in.
‘Thank God it’s not just Kostas who can step in. Joe Gomez, Luke Chambers can both step in,’ he said.
‘We have young players training during int’l breaks, the young kids show up, lots of talent and we need options, that’s clear. KT is experienced but he cannot play all.’
