After suffering yet another injury during his opening game of the season for Liverpool, Thiago Alcantara is expected to spend an extended period of time on the sidelines until the end of the season.
In the second half of the previous season, the 32-year-old midfielder struggled with a hip injury, and he was formally shelved in April 2023 due to what few people anticipated to be such a major condition.
In point of fact, Thiago did not make his comeback to action until the previous weekend, which was more than nine months after his last active appearance. He came off the bench for the final five minutes of the Reds’ 3-1 loss to Arsenal.
Thiago, a midfielder for Liverpool, sustained an injury during his brief appearance, according to The Times. This injury will cause him to be on the sidelines for a little bit longer, so it is possible that this will be the last time that fans of the club see him live.
The most recent injury that Thiago has sustained is thought to be muscular, and it is possible that he will be sidelined for a number of weeks.
The Spaniard Thiago is currently in the final six months of his contract with Liverpool, and the club will soon be required to make a choice about the future of the player.
It has been speculated that Thiago and Joel Matip will be offered the opportunity to switch from Liverpool to Al Ettifaq by Steven Gerrard at the conclusion of the current season. Additionally, a return to Barcelona has been put forward as a possibility.
However, fellow midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai is still absent from the squad. Szoboszlai is suffering from a hamstring injury, which may prevent him from participating in the Carabao Cup final match against Chelsea, which is scheduled to take place later this month.
The hamstring injury that Mohamed Salah sustained during the Africa Cup of Nations has also prevented him from playing. He is still unable to participate.
Following his dismissal against Arsenal, center-back Ibrahima Konate has been given a suspension that will prevent him from playing in this weekend’s match against Burnley.
