Klopp gave an update post the match saying, "I think we all saw it, the ankle was not in the right place anymore. The medical department put it in the right place again, which is very important really in this moment that it goes quick. Apart from that, there is not a lot of good things to say about it. Obviously, it’s a bad injury and we have to wait now for further examinations, assessments or whatever, scans, and that’s what we do."
