Jurgen Klopp confirmed last night that captain Jordan Henderson suffered a twisted ankle in last night’s win over Bayern Munich.

The midfielder departed the game after just 13 minutes and was replaced by Fabinho.

Many feared that Henderson’s injury could be a serious one, but his manager was quick to address the issue in his post-match interview.

“It’s a big night with a little shadow that is Hendo’s twisted ankle,” Klopp said, according to LiverpoolFC.com.

“It’s Hendo so he’s a hard one, but we have to see, of course. It looks hopefully not that serious but for tonight we had to change.

“That’s always a bad sign for a game, when you have to change early. We trained with him there in that position – we wanted to, not to rest Fabinho, but we wanted to bring in fresh legs and Hendo had fresh legs but unfortunately that didn’t help with the ankle.”
