Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for the rest of the season after his knee injury last Thursday against Borussian Dortmund.
The England international was replaced in Liverpool’s quarter final first leg clash against Dortmund after signaling he couldn’t continue for the rest of the 90 minutes.
Manager Jurgen Klopp later told the media, his skipper’s prognosis was “really bad news”.
Liverpool released a statement that read, “Under normal circumstances, an LCL injury can typically lead to anything up to a three-month layoff. However, Henderson’s issue appears to be less serious and providing all goes well with the midfielder’s recovery programme, the time out of action could be limited to between six and eight weeks.”
The injury spells doom for Henderson was was targeting a place on the plane to the Euro 2016, with England manager Roy Hogson set to name his 23-man squad for this summer’s championships.
The midfielder started England’s game against Germany but failed to repeat the feat against Netherlands a few days later.
