Snapped: Injured Liverpool ace in a lot of pain before being taken off against Burton

24 Aug

The Germany international went to ground without being touched by another player and was substituted off in the 71st minute.

It was clear from the 22-year-old’s facial expression that he was in a great deal of discomfort, but he did manage to walk off the pitch when he was taken off.

After the match, boss Jurgen Klopp said: “He had a little pain in his ankle without any touch – I couldn’t see any contact. It was a long leg, then a little bit floppy and then he had pain.

“But it is not that serious. It’s not that big [of a] pain anymore, but it’s the ankle he had problems with at the end of last season, so he’s a little bit worried.

“Hopefully it’s nothing too serious.”
