Klopp delivers latest Liverpool injury update after Palace loss
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mamadou Sakho will undergo scan after picking up knee problem
Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will have to wait for Mamadou Sakho to undergo a scan to assess the damage to the defender’s right knee.
The France international was left clutching his right knee after he landed awkward following a challenge with Palace winger Yannick Bolasie during the first half of Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Anfield.
Sakho was replaced by Croatia centre-half Dejan Lovren as the Reds suffered their first defeat under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after the 48-year-old took over the Merseyside outfit last month.
Speaking to at his post-match media conference after a first loss in six games, Klopp refused to speculate on the severity of Sakho’s injury ahead of the international break.
“I don’t know [how bad it is]. It’s too bad that he could not play on but we have to wait for the scan,” Klopp told the media.
“We will do it tomorrow evening because he needs a little bit of time. I don’t want to speculate now and we hope it is not too serious. That was the worst thing today.”
Sakho has made seven Premier League appearances for the Merseyside outfit this weekend.
The France international moved to the five-time European champions in a £16m deal from PSG in the summer of 2013.
