Joe Gomez out for weeks: Liverpool in trouble ahead of Big Games!
Joe Gomez will undergo an operation on Monday to repair his broken leg. Gomez suffered his right-leg injury following a clash with Burnley F.C defender Ben Mee on December 5.
The Englishman could be ruled out for six weeks, which means he could miss big games against Manchester United, Everton, and the Champions League double against Bayern Munich.
With his leg injury, the Liverpool defender might lose his chances of making to the next England national squad.
Gomez was a mainstay in coach Jurgen Klopp’s side for the first half of the season. Speaking of the Gomez’s absence in the team, Klopp said,
It’s a blow for the boy and for us – because prior to the injury he was in such fantastic shape.
But he is too valuable to take any risk with, both for our present and future, so we get this procedure done and he comes back when he’s ready.
Obviously being out for longer than we’d first hoped for is hard to swallow but it’s part and parcel of the industry.
