Liverpool captain out for rest of season

LONDON (AFP) – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed yesterday that captain Jordan Henderson’s season is over due to a knee injury.

Henderson was forced off in the midweek 3-1 win over Brighton following a collision with Yves Bissouma but the Reds boss revealed surgery is not needed and expects the midfielder to return in time for next season.

“Hendo is the best possible of all bad news – it is a knee injury but no surgery needed but he will not play any more in the latter stages of this season but I am pretty positive he will start with us the new season,” said Klopp.
