Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcântara encounters another lengthy injury spell

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcântara season may have come to an end after the club’s first team manager confirmed that the Spaniard has suffered another injury spell.

Thiago has been absent for the entire of Liverpool’s campaign this season, having only played 5 minutes against Arsenal in the Premier League, where Liverpool were beaten 3-1 last Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.

“Thiago, obviously, is not cool. Everything looked absolutely fantastic in training. We showed quite a lot of things, I think, on LFCTV so you can see the training moments, and it looks outstanding so you think, ‘Come on, take him, we have the opportunity, let him play a few minutes’ and then…

“It’s a muscle issue, we don’t know the extent yet. We have to wait there a little bit, but it’s not cool, of course. It was really not good news for him, for us, for everybody. On top of losing the game already and having that is not good.

“Yes [I expect him to play again this season], but we didn’t really think about that, in the moment we just treat the injury and get a full assessment done and knowing exactly where it came from. It’s not the intensity and stuff like this, so there are different things.

“It’s just the normal procedure and it would not be a big story if he wouldn’t have been out for that long a time. That’s how it is. It’s not a big, big injury, definitely not, but it’s obviously something nobody needed.”

Since joining Liverpool in 2022, Thiago has scored 3 goals and provided 6 assists in 96 appearances. He was also part of the team that won the 2021-22 F.A. Cup and the 2022 Community Shield.
