Clyne Set To Be Out For Significant Period

Liverpool right back, Nathaniel Clyne is set to be side lined for a significant period of time with a back injury according to the official Liverpool Website.

Clyne has not played for Jurgen Klopp ‘s men since he came on as a substitute in Liverpool’s pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers on July 12th last.

Speaking to liverpoolfc.com, Klopp said, “Nathaniel is working hard on his rehab and we have kept a close eye on his progress, but the reality is we are looking at some time still before he is back and available for selection. I am told it will be longer than just a couple of weeks, so we will continue to monitor and assess.”

“It is pretty certain he’ll not be available for the majority of the Champions League group matches. If we are fortunate enough to still be in UEFA competition in the New Year he could be added to the squad then.”

“The medical guys are pleased with how he is responding and Nathaniel has shown a really strong attitude, given he is not someone who is used to being out injured.”

“What is positive for us is how Joe [Gomez] and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] have stepped up and grasped their opportunities.”

There was speculation that he was a long term injury concern when he wasn’t included in Liverpool’s Champions League squad which was announced a few days ago.

He can however be included in January when teams are permitted to submit updated squads before the later stages of the cometition begin in February. That is of course dependent on Liverpool progressing from the group stage of the competition.

Clyne is continuing to work with the medical team at Melwood in an effort to return to full fitness as soon as possible
