Liverpool Release Roberto Firmino Statement After Bad Eye Injury (Photos)

Liverpool have confirmed Roberto Firmino has been discharged from a London hospital after scans due to an eye injury in the match against Tottenham.

In the second half of Liverpool’s 2-1 win Tottenham, Firmino was caught in his left eye by a stray finger from Vertonghen.

Firmino was forced to come off the pitchand manager Jurgen Klopp said he was unsure about the severity of the problem.

But Liverpool have this evening revealed Firmino visited a hospital for scans on his eye.

The statement said: “Roberto Firmino was discharged from a London hospital this afternoon after receiving good news on the eye injury he sustained during Liverpool's 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur.

“The forward was sent for assessment having been forced from the field in the second half of the Reds’ Wembley victory.

“A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage.

“The issue will be monitored and treated by Liverpool’s medical staff at Melwood before any decision is made on whether Firmino will be able to figure in Tuesday evening’s Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield. At this stage, the No.9 has not been ruled out.

“Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment.

“The players and staff onboard the club flight back to Liverpool sent the Braziliana video wishing him well, recorded on the team plane.”

Firmino also posted an update on social media and eased any concerns by saying: 'It was just a scare, my eye is ok and so am I. Thank you for all the support and see you soon #YNWA'.

The positive teams comes after Coach Jurgen Klopp's comments when he revealed the Brazilian was in discomfort after the incident.

“I’m not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don’t know exactly in the moment,” the Liverpool boss told theclub’s official website.

"I only saw the situation from around 60 yards. I have no clue what exactly happened.

“But it’s something with the eye and for sure in the moment it’s not comfortable for him. We will see.”
