Alison Becker, the Brazilian and Liverpool keeper, is to miss the coming clash against Bournemouth tomorrow at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp, the manager confirmed the injury of the glovesman during press conference. He will be without the shot stopper in the second-leg tie against the LaLiga side, Athletico Madrid next week.
He said “Unfortunately Ali is out,” said Klopp told the media. He had a little incident in training before the Chelsea game. We all thought it was nothing and it was clear he would not play anyway, the plan was he was on the bench. Then we thought, ‘Come on, we don’t have to take any risks’ so left him out of the squad. [There was a] scan the next day and they found something. So now he is out. We will see, next week for sure. Next week for sure and then we will see.”
Liverpool are hoping to have a win this weekend and turn their 1-0 deficit of the first leg-tie against Athletico Madrid.
