crazy ball – Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota will not be able to play against Manchester City. The German coach gave an explanation about the two why they could not play.
Liverpool will face Manchester City in the Community Shield on Saturday (30/7) evening WIB. The duel between the two teams will be held at the King Power Stadium, Leicester, England.
The Merseyside football club had their pre-season games but the results were also mixed. Started losing to Manchester United, won against Crystal Palace and most recently the Premier League giants lost 1-0 to RB Salzburg.
Unlike Jurgen Klopp’s opponents, Manchester City, who have won two Premier League titles in a row, are better prepared to welcome the Community Shield clash this weekend. The Citizens were able to win two pre-season tour victories each against Bayern Munich and Club America.
The good news is Erling Haaland has also started scoring goals for Manchester City and will be a test for the Liverpool goalkeeper. Ahead of the Community Shield game, Jurgen Klopp made sure they were without Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota. The former Borussia Dortmund coach explained why the two did not play.
Speaking at his press conference quoted from sports mole, Klopp said Alisson could not play due to stomach problems in pre-season. However, the coach who hinted in the Premier League opener against Fulham could be available.
Jurgen Klopp also explained that the same applies to Diogo Jota who cannot play against Manchester City. He gave the code that the hamstring injury suffered by the Portuguese footballer was quite serious. Therefore, it may be a little longer.
Liverpool in the game will also not be able to play Caoimhin Kelleher. Alisson’s underlay was also injured in the pre-season. Virtually a football club from Merseyside only has Adrian in goal.
However, if it is Adrian who plays good news for the Manchester City striker and the former West Ham goalkeeper will face a tough test. Can the English Premier League giants from Merseyside win the Community Shield without Alisson and Diogo Jota? Interesting we look forward to.
