Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain takes to social media to deliver an update on his injury for Liverpool FC fans
Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain has taken to social media to send a heartfelt message of thanks to Liverpool FC fans after his injury setback this week.
The England midfielder had to be carried off on a stretcher in the first half of Liverpool FC’s 5-2 win over AS Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night after having suffered a knee injury.
Scans have since shown that Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered serious knee ligament damage and he will be out of action for the rest of the season and also miss the World Cup in Russia.
The news comes as a devastating blow to the 24-year-old, who had been in fine form for Liverpool FC since his move to the Anfield club from Arsenal in the summer transfer window last year.
However, the midfielder was doing his best to stay in a positive mindset despite the setback after Tuesday night’s game.
Oxlade-Chamberlain posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Absolutely devastated to have picked up this injury at such a crucial time in the season.
“Gutted I won’t be able to play any further part now in our Champions League run for Liverpool, and also the World Cup with England.
“But now it’s all about supporting the boys and getting behind them. I know we have what it takes to do something special in this tournament.
“I’m going to give everything I have to make sure I’m back as quickly as possible.
“However, this all pales in comparison to how the family of the Liverpool fan badly hurt before last nights game must be feeling. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones. Thank you for all your kind words, messages and support. I’ll see you soon. #YNWA.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC are currently preparing to return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Stoke City in front of their home fans at Anfield.
The Reds are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they bid to try finish in the top four and win the Champions League this season.
