When it rains, it pours. Right now, it’s absolutely p*ssing it down for Liverpool.
Jordan Henderson is the latest name on Liverpool’s ever-growing injury list, after the 30-year-old had to leave the pitch in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Everton last weekend.
The club have now confirmed that Henderson has undergone successful surgery on his groin injury, but will be sidelined until at least April.
While no specific timescale has been set, a statement on the club website did say the midfielder would be ruled out until after the international break at the end of March.
“Following further assessment with the club’s medical team, Henderson has successfully had a corrective procedure carried out on the adductor injury. He will begin a rehabilitation programme immediately.
“No specific timescale is being placed upon his return; however, the 30-year-old is ruled out initially until after the March international break.
“Henderson’s recovery will be closely monitored by the club’s medical department and his progression during his rehab work will determine when he is able to resume full training.”
With Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk already out for the rest of the season, losing Henderson is another massive blow for Liverpool’s back line.
