Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp provides Alexis Mac Allister injury update

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given an injury update on Alexis Mac Allister after the midfielder hobbled off against Bayern Munich.

The Argentinian midfielder went down in the first half after a collision, requiring treatment from the club's medical staff.

He was removed from the action at half-time as one of three Reds changes, although it was unclear whether his was a planned substitution.

Footage captured at the match from a supporter showed Mac Allister limping back to the dressing room, which will no doubt have concerned the Reds given their opening Premier League fixture of the season against Chelsea is just 11 days away.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website after the friendly against Bayern, Klopp explained: "Yeah, [it was] knee on knee. He could have played on.


"So firstly I got the information that it's too painful, so that was then clear that we will change. There's no need to push him through.

"When I spoke afterwards he said, 'No, no, I would have been fine'. But we didn't want to go [with] any risks.

"It's just knee on knee, bruise. That's it. It was fine."

Klopp's comments will come as a relief to Liverpool supporters, with the first team already short on numbers in midfield following the departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.


Liverpool eventually lost the Bayern friendly 4-3, despite going 2-0 up early in the second half.

Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane pulled the scores level shortly before half-time, before Luis Diaz put Liverpool back ahead after the break.

But goals from Josip Stanisic and Frans Kratzig sealed the win for the reigning Bundesliga champions, who are targeting a move for Tottenham star Harry Kane to add to their attack this summer.
