Dejan Lovern doubtful for Bayern Munich Champions League clash with hamstring injury

DEFENSIVE SHORTAGES

The centre-back has not travelled with the rest of the squad to their training camp in Spain

Dejan Lovren is a doubt for Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

The Reds face the German club at Anfield on Tuesday, February 19 in the last-16 of the competition.

And after picking up a hamstring injury against Wolves on January 7 and Lovren has yet to fully recover.

The Liverpool squad have gone to Marbella for a training camp but Lovren has not travelled so he can continue his rehabilitation.

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “Dejan is not here and Joe [Gomez] is not here.

“That’s never a good sign, I would say, but we will try everything to make Dejan available for Munich. It will be a tight race.

“For him, it makes sense in the moment to be in another place to do what he has to do. It wouldn’t have helped if he was here, so we will try everything – that’s clear.”

Gomez has recently had surgery on a fractured leg and is expected to be out for four to seven weeks.

It leaves Liverpool a bit stretched with defensive options for the Bayern game as Virgil van Dijk is suspended for the first leg, making Joel Matip the only out-and-out centre-back available.


Liverpool have travelled to Spain for the training camp as they have no matches until the Champions League clash.

The next round of the FA Cup is being played this weekend and the Reds were knocked out in the previous round by Wolves.
