Klopp confirms Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson out for a couple of weeks

Klopp confirms Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson out for a couple of weeks”

In Liverpool's very first Premier League match of the season, the unthinkable happened: goalkeeper Alisson Becker went down injured.

Liverpool sold longtime keeper Simon Mignolet last week to Belgian side Club Brugge.

Klopp chose to keep hold of the veteran goalkeeper upon returning to Melwood and has now ostensibly offered the Englishman a deal to stay on at the club.

Brazil worldwide Alisson limped off in the first half of Liverpool's Premier League opener at Anfield on Friday. When it was deemed that Alisson could no longer continue, Jurgen Klopp's newest signing Adrian was thrust into action.

Liverpool's other options in goal are Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslav Jaros - the former who is just returning to the team after breaking his wrist, while Jaros was also injured in pre-season.

Klopp is unsure when Alisson, who claimed the Premier League's Golden Glove last season, will regain fitness.

The Spanish shot-stopper has arrived at Liverpool without a pre-season under his belt and though Klopp insists he has looked sharp in training, he admits there is a need to take extra precautions to make sure he too does not pick up an injury. "It's a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while".

"I don't want to make now (an) exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not tomorrow for sure, so now then we have to see". This is our next opportunity to do so and it'd be great if we can take it.

"So that's a very experienced solution but in the moment when Caoimhin Kelleher is back then obviously Adrian is No.1, Caoimhin probably No.2 but we have to see how then he can have some games with the Under-23s or Under-21s [so] that he gets match practice as well".

Alisson will now miss the Red's Uefa Super Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday, and Klopp has revealed the goalkeeper is likely to be missing for a "few weeks". We spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do on Wednesday!
