Left-back Robertson has been ruled out of the start of Liverpool’s season after suffering ligament damage during Sunday’s 1-1 friendly draw against Athletic Bilbao. Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool got lucky with Andy Robertson despite the full-back being ruled out at the start of the season with an ankle injury.

Robertson revealed on Monday evening that he will miss the start of Liverpool’s Premier League campaign due to ligament damage. The left-back limped out of the Reds’ 1-1 friendly draw against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday and was pictured wearing a protective boot on his right foot.
The injury initially appeared to be serious, with Klopp saying on Sunday that it was a pretty painful blow for Robertson. But the manager’s update following Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Osasuna in their final pre-season match on Monday will offer some reassurance to fans.
“I think we got lucky with that, it could have been much worse,” Klopp told LFCTV.
The footage didn’t look too well, got lucky but it won’t be too long. Before or after the international break, I don’t know. Not too long. Obviously, good to have Kostas back, and Owen which is nice as well. Klopp’s prognosis means Robertson could be due back fairly soon, given the first international break in the Premier League season runs from August 30 to September 8.

That is just a fortnight after Liverpool’s campaign opener at Norwich on Saturday and is for World Cup qualifiers, with England playing Hungary, Andorra, and Poland. Robertson started all 38 of Liverpool’s Premier League games last season, contributing one goal and seven assists, but will now miss the start of the 2021/22 season.
“Thanks to everyone for the kind messages and support,” he wrote on social media.
Scan suggests nothing too major but there’s some ligament damage which will need to mend. I will be grafting every day so I can help the team again sooner rather than later. Good luck to the boys playing tonight. While Robertson’s injury is undoubtedly a huge blow to Liverpool, supporters will take heart from Tsimikas’ pre-season performances.
The Greek international was signed by Olympiacos last summer for £11.75million to provide backup to Robertson but endured a nightmare first season due to injury. Having made just seven appearances in all competitions, Tsimikas now looks set to play a much more important role in the upcoming campaign. He looked impressive against Osasuna, putting in a brilliant first-time cross for Roberto Firmino’s first goal while also taking set-pieces.
“I always give my best to be close to the team,” Tsimikas told the club website following Liverpool’s 1-0 friendly win over Bologna last week.
And whenever my coach allows me to play, I’m always ready for that. Any opportunity, I’m ready.
