Jurgen Klopp reveals who could replace injured Adrian in Liverpool’s next match against Soutampton

Jurgen Klopp has spoken about Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian who suffered a freak injury during Wednesday’s Super Cup win over Chelsea. Adrian was the hero in Liverpool’s Super Cup win as he saved the decisive spot-kick. However, he suffered an injury and can now miss Saturday’s trip to Southampton. Asked if Adrian’s confidence was sky-high after his penalty heroics, Klopp said: ‘It would help him a lot, if it were 100% clear that he can play tomorrow. ‘Because, and I really don’t understand it in the world of social media, where you are all on it, where we are all together, a supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked his ankle. Crazy. ‘Yesterday it was swollen, today I spoke to him, he’s here, he says it’s better, much better than yesterday, but we have to see. ‘Apart from that, yes, it was a brilliant night for him for sure. Not only because of the penalty, especially because of the match. I think he was in a penalty mood because of the game he’d played before. So that was all good, but now we have to see.’ If Adrian is unable to play, Klopp can call upon third choice keeper Andy Lonergan Asked if Lonergan is ready to step in, Klopp continued: ‘Yeah. Caoimhin is now in training too, so if we have to make a decision we have to make a decision. But yes of course. ‘Adrian came in a week before, Andy Londergan trained longer with us, played a half against Sevilla maybe, I’m not sure, one of the pre-season games. ‘Caoimhin, who we are all excited about, a young boy with the potential he has, was not in training for a while but is now in training. Not 100% training, but nearly, for a week-and-a-half, has to be in training today and then we will see and make a decision.’ MORE: LIVERPOOL FC
