Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara’s future at the club is in question following another injury setback. His recent muscle injury, suffered just minutes into his return from a previous issue, raises doubts about his ability to continue playing for the Premier League side. Thiago had missed 10 months due to a hip surgery and had recently returned to full-contact training. In a match against Arsenal, he felt a muscle problem in the final moments of the game, raising concerns about the severity of the injury.
It is reported that this injury could potentially sideline him for several months, and given his history of long-term lay-offs, Liverpool will need to exercise caution. With Thiago’s contract expiring at the end of the season, his limited playing time and the uncertainty surrounding managerial changes at Liverpool, there is speculation about his potential departure from the club. His playing time has been restricted, and with Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure, Thiago’s future at the club is further clouded. Klopp had expressed enthusiasm about Thiago’s return to action, but it seems that he will now be unavailable for an extended period.
Thiago’s injury adds to the list of players in the treatment room, alongside Dominik Szoboszlai and Mohamed Salah, who are both dealing with hamstring issues.
