Jürgen Klopp reveals the size of the Liverpool star’s injury
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said on Tuesday that striker Diogo Gota’s injury is not as bad as he initially thought and there is little chance he will participate in the team’s last game of the season. Gotha was injured during Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Manchester United last week, and Klopp said earlier that the Portuguese player, who has scored 13 goals in all competitions, will not play again this season. However, this diagnosis changed after Gotha underwent a new x-ray examination of his foot, and there is no threat now to his participation in the European Championship. Klopp said in a press conference before Liverpool’s penultimate match this season against his host Burnley on Wednesday: “As for Dio Go, the swelling in the foot has subsided and he appears in better condition than he was in the first x-ray examination, so there is a slight chance of his participation early next week.” “It is also good news for Portugal and Lugo ahead of the European Championships,” he added. Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is completely fit after recovering from illness while James Milner is set to return to training where he has not played since April 24. Liverpool are fifth with 63 points and their chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season have been boosted after goalkeeper Alison Baker scored a stoppage-time goal with a header to give them a fatal 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. “I have never seen a goal like it before. It will be a tremendous achievement,” Klopp said. “The team’s position is much better than it was a few weeks ago … But I don’t want to talk about qualifying for the Champions League. We will talk about it then.” “. Liverpool will end the season at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
