Liverpool star Thiago could be set to miss the Champions League final after picking up an injury against Wolves yesterday and is set for a scan to see the extent of the problem in the coming days.
The Spaniard limbed off just before halftime and was then replaced at the break, and should the 31-year-old miss out on the Champions League final this would be a huge blow to the Reds considering how important the midfielder is to Jurgen Klopp’s side – shown yesterday with his immaculate assist.
Speaking after the game about the injury, Klopp said via The Athletic: “I think he’ll be out of the final but I don’t know. He’s limping, so it’s maybe not the best sign.
“Not good, but I cannot say more. He could walk, that’s obviously a good sign, so let’s see. It was a lower part of his body.”
The German could have another key midfielder back for the final in Fabinho, which is a boost for Liverpool, but this news will certainly come as a big blow before such an important occasion.
??”He had his little girl on his shoulders, so he could walk. That’s obviously a good sign.”
