Liverpool striker Diogo Jota of the English professional football Premier League (EPL), who injured his knee during a game, is expected to take several months to return.

According to the Associated Press on the 21st (Korean time), Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said, “It will clearly take Jota several months (to recover).”

However, Coach Klopp predicted that Jota will be able to return before the end of the season and participate in the 2024 European Football Championships (Euro 2024), scheduled for June.

Jota complained of pain in his knee after being run over by an opposing player in the 40th minute of the first half of the 2023-2024 EPL 25th round away game against Brentford held at the G-Tech Community Stadium in Brentford, England on the 17th, and was soon carried out on a stretcher.

Liverpool will face Chelsea for the Carabao Cup trophy at midnight on the 26th.

There is bound to be a big vacancy for Jota, who scored 9 goals in 19 EPL games this season.

In addition, Manager Klopp revealed that midfielder Curtis Jones also injured his ankle ligaments.

Liverpool (England)’s plan to take first place in the league was also disrupted as key players fell one after another and became an injury ward.

Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson missed the game against Brentford after suffering a muscle problem during training, and defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is also complaining of knee pain.

Midfielders Dominique Szoboslaui and Thiago Alcantara are also suffering from muscle injuries, and Joel Matip has been out since December last year due to a ruptured cruciate ligament.

The only consolation is that Muhammad Salah, who injured his leg muscle during the African Cup of Nations match, scored immediately after returning from the game against Brentford.

Liverpool is currently ranked first in the EPL with 57 points, but is being chased by Manchester City in second place (56 points) and Arsenal in third place (55 points). 섯다
