Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Diogo Jota has been ruled out for the remainder of the season from Liverpool after sustaining a foot injury.
The Portugal international was injured in Thursday’s 4-2 win at Manchester United and was therefore excluded from the Reds’ trip to West Brom at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
Klopp gave a further update on Jota’s condition during his media duties at the meet.
“No good thing without a bad thing – so we won at Manchester United but Diogo got something with the bone,” Klopp saidSky Sports.
“Not too serious but serious enough to end the season. That’s it.”
