Liverpool's player Joel Matip got a bad injury in his knee, specifically a ruptured ACL. This news was shared by the team's manager, Juergen Klopp, after Liverpool won a game against Sheffield United 2-0. Matip, who is 32 years old, had to leave the field in the last game against Fulham because his knee was hurt. The team did a scan, and it confirmed that his ACL is ruptured. Unfortunately, this means he might not be able to play for the rest of the season. Klopp said it's very unfortunate, but he kind of expected it from the start.
Klopp is also worried about another player, Alexis Mac Allister. He got a knock during the Sheffield United match and had to leave the game in the second half. Klopp is concerned about injuries, and this incident adds to his worries.
