Liverpool star to undergo shoulder surgery and face extended absence, Jurgen Klopp confirms

Andrew Robertson is bracing for an extended period on the sidelines due to a shoulder injury that will necessitate surgery.

The Scotland national team captain incurred the injury during international duty, and upon his return to Liverpool, the club's medical staff determined that surgical intervention was the most appropriate course of action.

Robertson's absence will undoubtedly pose a significant challenge for the Reds, as he has been a key figure in their defensive setup and an influential presence on the field.

The surgery and recovery process will be closely monitored, but it is expected that he will be out of action for a considerable duration.

Speaking in his pre-match conference via Belfast Telegraph, Jurgen Klopp confirmed the following:

There is a little chance we could try without but talking to pretty much all experts it looks like surgery will be the best thing, especially in the long term definitely, and that means he is out for a while.

“There is a little bit there, I think the decision is we go towards surgery.

“I don’t know exactly how long but it is shoulder surgery so not exactly an easy one.

“In my experience you can train pretty quickly again but not football-specific because you have to be careful of challenges and all these kind of things so he will be out for a while.” stated the manager.
