Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson had to undergo surgery due to a shoulder injury.
The player got injured while playing for Scotland on October 12, in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp had already said that the team and Robertson had decided to “opt for surgery”. “There is a small chance of trying without, but talking to almost all the specialists, it seems that surgery is the best option, especially in the long term,” said the coach at a press conference.
On Wednesday (25) press conference, before the match against Toulouse on Thursday (26), Klopp told the reporters that Robertson already had the operation. “He’s had his surgery and it all went well, as good as it could be. We don’t know how long it will take but the first step is done.”
Robertson has played eight league games and scored one goal for the Reds this season. He was replaced by left-back Kostas Tsimikas in Saturday’s (21) Merseyside derby win against Everton.
