Gareth Southgate Confirms Jordan Henderson Issue As Liverpool’s Horror Injury List Grows
England boss Gareth Southgate has revealed that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson picked up an injury during international duty.
And the loss of the English midfielder to injury will be another blow for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, who is already without several players after the international break.
Southgate admitted that he was unsure how severe Henderson's injury was, but he added that the England international "felt he couldn't carry on."
The 50-year-old Three Lions manager explained after the match: "Jordan had a bit of tightness at half-time and felt he couldn't carry on.
"We'll have to assess him when we get back."
