A statement on Liverpool website reads:
“Liverpool can confirm Fabinho suffered ankle ligament damage during the Champions League encounter with Napoli in midweek”.
“The midfielder needed to be substituted after 18 minutes of the 1-1 draw at Anfield on Wednesday night after falling awkwardly during a challenge”.
“Further assessment on the injury has discovered Fabinho will be out of action until the New Year”.
“The Brazilian will begin a rehabilitation programme with the Reds’ medical team at Melwood as he works his way back to full fitness”.
And Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp seems discontented with the news regarding Fabinho’s availability.
“He’s soaking everything up. When he receives the ball, he passes it forward which many holding midfielders don’t do, that first pass forward to put your team on the attack”.
“It’s a big loss, but I’m confident in the squad that there are plenty to fill in the void”.
