 The Red Brigade suffered a huge loss after the match against Inter Milan in the Champions League round of 16.

Jurgen Klopp praises Diogo Jota

In the middle of last week, Liverpool had a trip to Inter Milan’s field. The two teams created a fiery and dramatic rivalry. It was not until the 75th minute that Roberto Firmino opened the scoring from a corner kick. In the 83rd minute, Mohamed Salah sealed a 2-0 victory for The Kop, giving the home team a great advantage before the second leg.

Diogo Jota was arranged by Jurgen Klopp to start the game. However, the Portuguese striker suffered an ankle injury, and was forced to leave the field at half-time, making way for Firmino. Recently, when leaving Italy with the whole team, reporters caught Jota on crutches and wearing safety shoes on his feet.

 Jota was seen walking on crutches.

The condition of the former Wolves star raised an ominous injury situation, worse than initially anticipated. For The Kop fans, this is obviously not good news at all, because Jota has been in very high form since the beginning of 2022. Currently, the 25-year-old striker has 17 goals in all competitions, only behind Mohamed Salah.

The Kop is entering the most stressful period of the season, with a dense schedule, the matches also become more fierce. And of course they do not want their main striker Jota to be out in the near future because of injury.
