Liverpool have reported Joe Gomez will be out for additional weeks.
England international was supposed to be back in early February. However, Gomez has suffered a setback in his recovery from fractured leg.
“We thought three weeks ago he would be closer and then we had to make another diagnosis in which we saw that it didn’t work out so far as we wanted, that’s why he is still not in training or running on the pitch,” Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s official website (via LiverpoolECHO).
“We have to wait. Obviously it was really unlucky in that situation. The injury is not like Trent or Gini where you know ‘that’s the only thing’.
“It could have been like that, but then more and more we found out it’s a more serious thing.”
“We have to wait, for sure, a couple of weeks. We will see, it is difficult to judge in the moment.” he added.
Liverpool will face Leicester City in upcoming Premier League match.
