Andy Robertson is not expected to miss the start of next season, despite contrasting reports.
The player was forced to miss Tuesday night’s game against Belgium with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
Early reports suggested that the injury itself was a serious one and would see Robertson miss the start of the new campaign.
The defender has since taken to social media to provide an update and it appears to be good news for Liverpool.
Speaking on his Instagram, he said:
Frustrating to miss last nights game and to end an incredible season on a small low! Now it’s time to switch off, recover and get ready to do it all over again with club and country!
Having the defender back fully fit and available for the start of next season will be a major boost for the Reds.
Robertson was instrumental in Liverpool’s success both in the Premier League and of course, the Champions League during the 2018/19 season.
The Liverpool Echo reports that players will start returning for pre-season in the first week of July, but whether Robertson is included in that group remains to be seen.
Four positions Liverpool must strengthen this summer
Finding a back-up to Robertson will be crucial for Jurgen Klopp. There have been concerns about the former’s fitness for some time and he’ll need to be rotated in the long run.
The same applies to Trent Alexander-Arnold, the club need to find a suitable alternative that will allow them to rest their key players.
For Liverpool, it really is about adding to their squad and an alternative for Roberto Firmino, who could consistently perform will be needed.
A true creative midfielder would be a brilliant addition to the Liverpool squad to add that extra spark in the final third.
