Joe Gomez from Liverpool is going to have an operation with the hope that he will recover from the fracture he had in the lower leg. This had been announced by the leaders of the Premier League.
Gomez is known to have incurred the injury in the match against Burnley in the month of December. The initial assessment of Liverpool had been that the player is going to be sidelined for 6 weeks. However, they didn’t give a proper timescale for the recovery of the player. However, it is expected that he is going to play again this season.
The club issued a statement and said that Liverpool is giving a confirmation that Joe Gomez will have surgery for the lower leg fracture that he suffered at Burnley on 5th December. Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool has added that this is a blow for the boy and also for the team since before the injury he had been in great shape.
He goes on to say that he is too valuable for the team to be taken any risk. He is significant for the present, as well as for the future. Thus, he will get the procedure done and he can home when he is ready. In the meantime, Gomez is yet finding it really difficult to find out that he is going to be out of the game for a longer time than he actually thought at first.
