LIVERPOOL goalkeeper Alisson reportedly left Anfield on a wheelchair last night having suffered a potentially serious calf injury.
After a quickly taken goal kick during the first-half of Friday’s win over Norwich, the Brazilian immediately hit the deck and had to be helped off the pitch.
According to reports in his native Brazil, Liverpool physios had to take drastic measures to ensure Alisson put no pressure whatsoever on the damaged leg.
That meant him leaving the stadium on a wheelchair, say ESPN.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp stressed against making a hasty diagnosis with Alisson due for scans on the injury.
However the 26-year-old won’t feature in Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea.
Speaking after the 4-1 victory, Klopp said: “He felt as if something hit him from the back.
“He will not be ready for Wednesday.
“He couldn’t carry on. That is not a good sign.
“A tear? Maybe, but you cannot say that without the scan. We will find a solution and move on.”
