Allison Injury: "Doesn't Look Too Good" – Liverpool Klop Boss Increases Concerns Against Goalkeeper

Liverpool suffered a potentially huge blow early in the season after Alison was injured in the first half of their season opener against Norwich City.

After the game, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klop increased the club's fears, saying the goalkeeper's injury "didn't look too good".

The goalkeeper slipped as he took a quick goal kick and caught him in the back of his foot before falling from the pain to the grass.

After staying down for a few minutes, the Brazilian limped into the pitch and was replaced by Adrian in the 39th minute, with the Reds already up 3-0 at Anfield in a game they would continue to win 4-1.

It was the first major league appearance since May 2018 for the Spaniard, whose contract was not renewed by West Ham at the end of last season.

Adrian was only signed earlier this week as a replacement for Simon Minnet, who joined Club Brugge with a £ 8.2 million ($ 10 million) switch.

But the 32-year-old can now be set for an extended period in a goal for Liverpool based on Klopp's words after the match.

"The goalie situation has a shadow over it," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"He thought something hit him, so it's not a good sign. He thought it didn't happen. The athletes will understand what I mean."

"This obviously shows it's more than a strain. We don't know for sure, but it doesn't look too good."

Allison 2018-19

If Alison is forced to miss a long period, it will be a big blow for the Reds, who saw the Brazilian strengthen his goalkeeper position last season after arriving from Roma.

After moving from £ 67m (£ 75m) to Anfield in July 2018, Alison has further established herself as one of the top goalkeepers in the world and has helped Liverpool in a great season.

The Reds missed the Premier League title with one point behind Manchester City and won the Champions League by beating Tottenham 2-0 in the final in Madrid.

Alison has enjoyed even greater success this summer as she strives for Brazil's triumph at Copa America, the country's first international title in 12 years.

For his fantastic season, Alison won both the Premier League and the Champions League Gold Glove with Liverpool, and the same honor with Brazil for the Copa America.

The 26-year-old's season even made him mention Ballon d 'Or, which will make him only the second goalkeeper to win the prize after Lev Yashin in 1963.

Liverpool will face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday before returning to the Premier League next Saturday with a match against Southampton.
