Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has assured fans that Alexis Mac Allister’s injury is not a cause for concern. Mac Allister was injured during Liverpool’s 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in Singapore, suffering a blow to his knee and not returning for the second half. However, Klopp has confirmed that the substitution was merely a precautionary measure, asserting that Mac Allister could have continued playing if necessary. Mac Allister himself has also reassured fans that he is fine, stating that the injury is just bruising.
In addition to addressing Mac Allister’s condition, Klopp expressed mixed feelings about Liverpool’s overall performance in the match. While he praised certain aspects of the team’s play, he also highlighted areas that need improvement, particularly in terms of concentration. Klopp emphasized that the defeat should be viewed in the context of pre-season, a time for testing the team against strong opponents.
Despite the loss, Klopp expressed relief that no other players were injured during the match. The team will now analyze their performance and work on addressing the areas that need improvement. Klopp also mentioned the positive atmosphere in Singapore, stating that the team felt welcomed by the crowd.
Looking ahead, Liverpool will have one final friendly against Darmstadt on August 7 before their Premier League season opener against Chelsea on August 13. Klopp admitted that he is looking forward to returning to a quieter environment after their preseason travels. He is confident that the team will be well-prepared for the start of the Premier League season.
