OMG! Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Confirms Oxlade-Chamberlain Could Miss Entire 2018-19 Season

Coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is unlikely to play for Liverpool in the 2018-19 season.

Back in April, Oxlade-Chamberlain fell awkwardly in Liverpool's first leg Champions League semi-final win against Roma and had to be substituted.

The club then confirmed the 24-year-old had suffered a serious knee ligament injury and would miss the rest of the season and the World Cup.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was expected to return before the end of 2018-19 season but Jurgen Klopp has now revealed the full story behind the 24-year-old's injury and also revealed the midfielder kept news of his injury secret.

“It feels like now is an appropriate time to tell people that for Ox this coming season will be about focusing on recovery and rehab,” Klopp said.

“We have known this from pretty much the day after he got the injury and after the successful surgery, we were sure of it. I hope everyone treats this information responsibly.

“There has been no change, no setback – it’s exactly on the schedule we expected and planned for. The new information is that we’re now giving more detail publicly.

“It is typical of Ox that he didn’t want the news to overshadow the end of the season and, to be quite honest, we thought we could wait and tell people at an appropriate time.

“His surgery – which he had on the day of our second leg in Rome – has been completely successful and his recovery has started superbly well.

“But the truth of the matter is that we are preparing this season knowing he will not be with us on the pitch for competitive matches for the majority of it.

“If we do see him back this season it will be a bonus.”

Liverpool insist Oxlade-Chamberlain has not had a setback in his rehabilitation but it remains to be seen if Klopp will enter the transfer market to replace him.
