Screen Shot 2016-10-03 at 13.36.24Following the club’s 2-1 victory over Swansea City on Saturday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Dejan Lovren had suffered a groin injury.

The injury is obviously news in Lovren’s native Croatia, and Lovren is set to miss his country’s matches against Kosovo and Finland. Whilst that may not sound too concerning for Liverpool, an article from 24Sata certainly does.

The newspaper say that national team doctor Boris Nemec believes there’s little chance of Lovren travelling to Croatia. 24Sata’s headline says the player can hardly walk and is even struggling to sit properly.

They state Lovren had been experiencing backache in the week ahead of the Swansea match, and now has a further injury issue. An MRI scan is set to take place on Monday, but there’s not a great deal of hope on the national front.

Liverpool’s next match is on October 17th, at home to Manchester United, and they then face West Brom, Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace before the end of the month.
