The manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, has said that Lucas Leiva’s injury is not good news for the team and the midfielder’s absence would certainly disturb the team combination. Leiva had injured himself in the match against Manchester City a few days back.
The injury was quite severe and he looked in a lot of pain. According to the medical reports, Leiva might have to go through a surgery and in case of surgery; he would have to be out of the team for the next three months. This is the second big injury that Leiva has discovered in the last 10 months. In November last year, he had injured his knee which kept him out of the game for 7 months.
Rodgers said that it’s pretty disappointing for Leiva to get injured again. He had recovered from his knee injury after working so hard and now, he has got another blow. He would have been gutted at this point of time. But, he has got great temperament and hopefully, he would get rid of this injury pretty soon. On being asked whether Leiva needs a surgery or not, Rodgers said that nothing can be speculated at the moment. Leiva would take the advice of a specialist and then, anything would be decided regarding his surgery.
In the match in which Leiva got injured, Liverpool gave a tough fight to Manchester City and didn’t let the Premier League Champions secure a victory. Both the teams scored two goals each and the match ended in a draw. Luis Suarez and Martin Skrtel scored the two goals for Liverpool. On being asked about the performance of Liverpool in the match, Rodgers said that the team could have won the match, but, the players lost a few chances in the second half and allowed City to comeback in the match. Hopefully, the players would have learnt from their mistakes and would not repeat these mistakes in the further matches.
