Liverpool have confirmed Joe Gomez has undergone a successful surgery on a knee injury suffered in England training. The England and Liverpool defender underwent a scan after he suffered an injury at St. George’s Park on Wednesday. Gomez is expected to be sidelined for significant part of remainder of 2020-21 season.
Liverpool, who have already lost Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho to injuries would probably turn to Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams to fill Gomez’s shoes . The club said in a statement “The issue was isolated to Gomez’s tendon, with no damage to any other associated knee ligaments. The operation to correct the damage, which took place in London on Thursday morning, was a success and the 23-year-old will make a full recovery. Gomez will begin a rehabilitation programme with the Reds’ medical team immediately, with club staff carefully monitoring his progress. No timescale is being placed upon his return, though the issue is likely to rule him out for a significant part of the remainder of 2020-21.“
