As quoted by The Athletic, Klopp said the following: “With Bobby (Firmino), we didn’t even know that he had something until he felt it only after the game (in midweek).
“We all thought it is a little thing, but it’s a muscle injury and we have to see how long it will take. I don’t know at the moment, but for sure not for the next game, so we have to see.”
The German added: “Bobby Firmino has a muscle problem and is out for a while, so we have to keep the boys fit and create a spirit like the boys did today in the game (against Norwich City).”
Liverpool defeated the Canaries 3-1.
Anfield Watch Verdict
Liverpool signed Firmino from Hoffenheim for a transfer fee of €41 million back in the summer of 2015.
The 30-year-old has been a very good player for the Reds. Firmino has scored 95 goals and registered 73 assists in 316 appearances for the club's first-team.
Therefore, it is a shame to hear that a legend of the club has suffered an injury. Firmino has also been in decent form this season.
The striker has been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 6.91 across all competitions.
With that being the case, we look forward to seeing Firmino fit and firing again.
