5 mom's white hand.
This is probably some dairy farmer ...
Have we had any news other than a "few weeks"?
What else do you expect? His doctors notes?
No official news? What's happening to our Alli?
Calf strain, out for 2-3 weeks.
That is the news.
Next we'll hear when he's back in training in one of Klopp's presser
I got told last night that it could be 6-8 weeks. Which I hope isn't true.
It is precisely rumours and more rumours and lack of official news that make it strange and obviously make fans fear for the worst!
I don’t get the fear. It’s not 6 months and Adrian is more than capable of filling in.
The fear is that we have a history of either misrepresenting the significance of injuries or simply misdiagnosing them.
The lad who told me works for the club, he did say that that was worst case scenario.
That’s just not true though is it. We get 100’s of injuries a year and what people can name one of two cases in the last how many years and create a story.
Only broscience is 100% accurate.
Hello Mike Chang
Holy cow! Great news...
That tweet is dated 13th August so his calves can't have been that fine.
Oh dear. Portly, check out the picture. It will make more sense.
Ah I didn't check out the Twitter account.
Not liking the sound of this. Sounds like we still have a fair bit of rehab to come. We kind of hoped he'd be back straight after the international break but that sounds increasingly unlikely:
John Achterberg has provided an update on Alisson Becker's calf injury.
The Liverpool No.1 sustained the issue in the first half of the 4-1 win over Norwich City on August 9 and was subsequently ruled out for ‘the next few weeks’ by Jürgen Klopp.
Summer signing Adrian has stepped in for Alisson and enjoyed a fairy tale start to his Reds career with the decisive save in the UEFA Super Cup success against Chelsea.
Alisson continues to work on his rehabilitation at Melwood and Achterberg anticipates a clearer idea of his potential return date after the forthcoming international break.
“Ali is good. He’s in every day for treatment and they try to improve things,” the first-team goalkeeping coach told The Athletic.
“He’s able to do some fitness work in the gym without using his leg. It’s difficult, but you have to try to look forward and be positive. You have to try to turn a negative into a positive.
“They haven’t given us a specific time he’ll be out as it’s difficult to say how quickly it will heal. That’s all with the medics. There’s an international break coming up and we’ll have to wait and see how long it takes after that.
“When something like that happens, you look at everything. Had the training load changed? The reality is that we hadn’t done anything differently in the build-up to that game. Ali felt fine. We have a rule with the goalies that if there’s any kind of issue you always have to talk.
“He actually came back in much better shape this summer than last year when we first signed him. It was all positive and that makes what happened so frustrating for everyone.”
Rumours that he has more damage than first thought and is out until the united game.
