Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will miss the rest of the season as a result of the knee injury he sustained during the Reds 3-1 victory over Brighton on Wednesday 8th July 2020.
Henderson was forced off during the second half of the game at the AmEx Stadium following a collision with Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma and following a scan at Melwood on Thursday 9th July 2020, it was revealed that the English international will miss the final four games of the season.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side’s clash with Burnley on Saturday Jurgen Klopp suggested the 30-year-old would be fit for the start of the 2020/2021 campaign.
“It is the best possible of all the bad news. It is a knee injury, but there is no surgery needed. He will not play again for the rest of this season, but I’m positive he will be with us for the start of next season. He’s a quick healer” Klopp revealed.
Liverpool take on Burnley at Anfield on Saturday and will follow that up with games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle with the game against Chelsea seeing them receive the Premier League trophy, and Klopp confirmed that Henderson would be the one to lift it, even though he will not be involved that day.
“He deserves to lift the trophy, and he will lift the trophy. No surgery needed, that’s the good news. All the rest, we can make our own decisions. Hendo will lift the trophy.”
Henderson has made 40 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions this season, with his consistency for the record-breaking Reds seeing him billed by many as the leading contender for the PFA Player of the Year award.
