Alisson Out of Super Cup Final with Chelsea
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson will miss the team’s UEFA Super Cup Final against Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday night.
The Brazilian hurt his calf during the Reds’ 4-1 win over Norwich City on Friday night, when he went down after taking a goal-kick.
He was replaced by new signing Adrian in the first half and Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp says that Alisson will certainly miss Wednesday night’s Super Cup Final.
“There is actually nothing bad to say about the game apart from Ali’s injury. That is, of course, not good for us, but we have to see how serious it is and then we have to deal with it.
“It’s the calf and that’s it. He couldn’t carry on, that’s not a good sign. We have to see,” he told Liverpool’s official website.
“Wednesday [in the Super Cup], he will not play – with all my experience, I can say that already. He is injured, for sure, so we have to see how much.”
