Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp does not expect goalkeeper Alisson to be ready to return immediately after the international break after he sustained a shoulder injury in training.
The Brazil international was left out of the Reds’ squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa on Sunday and will now miss his country’s World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru.
Klopp says Alisson suffered the injury in a collision with another player and believes he will be out of action for at least a few weeks.
“It was an incident in training; very unlucky,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “Two players clash with each other; one gets up, one doesn’t. The one who didn’t get up was Ali.
“We don’t know 100 per cent but he cannot play today. We have to do further assessments but he’s injured, let me say it like this. Now we hope it will go really quickly.
“It’s an international break. I’m pretty sure after that he will not be ready, then we have to see week by week.”
