Liverpool suffer new goalkeeper injury blow ahead of new season
Goalkeeper Shamal George has announced he will be out for a month with an elbow injury.
And it leaves Klopp with just Simon Mignolet and Alex Manninger as his fit senior keepers ahead of next week’s Premier League opener against Arsenal.
George wrote on Twitter: “Out injured for four weeks unfortunately; ligament damage in my elbow.
“Hoping for a fast recovery and a good season.”
George, 18, impressed for Liverpool’s academy last season and had been part of the senior squad’s pre-season preparations, going on the recent tour of the USA.
He made his first-team debut in the 2-0 win over Huddersfield, although it was as an emergency striker rather than between the sticks after Lucas Leiva was forced off injured and he was the only substitute remaining.
