Dominik Szoboszlai injury update

Dominik Szoboszlai injury update

Liverpool's Hungarian midfielder is sadly injured once more, but there is confusion as to how long he will be missing from action.

Only last week, I wrote an article about the importance of getting key players, such as Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Dominik Szoboszlai back to full fitness.  With Liverpool playing crucial games almost every week, from now until the end of the season, having a fully fit squad to choose from, will greatly aid Jurgen Klopp, as he tries to guide Liverpool to an unprecedented Quadruple in his final season with the Reds.

However, I had barely had time to press the 'Publish' button, when news began to break that Szoboszlai would not be traveling to London for the Arsenal game, after he had suffered a recurrence of the muscle issue that had sidelined him for several weeks before the Chelsea game.

Confirmation of the injury setback came when Klopp named his starting XI, with Szoboszlai missing from the matchday squad.

After the game, Klopp confirmed that Szoboszlai had suffered an injury setback, but there were no further details given at the time.  Four days later, however, there is still little in the way of specific details, with various stories claiming the injury will sideline Szoboszlai for anything from one week to four weeks.

So what is happening, how bad is the injury, and how many games will Szoboszlia miss?

Szoboszlai heads back to Hungary

Whilst there has been no official word from Liverpool regarding the severity of the injury, it has been claimed by several sources that Szoboszlai has returned to his native Hungary, to see a muscle specialist, in a bid to get to the bottom of the problem.

That visit took place on Monday, at the Headquarters of the Hungarian FA, with Szoboszlai now back at Anfield.  It is claimed that the meeting failed to determine the cause of the new problem, with Liverpool's in-house medical team now taking charge of his recovery.

Whilst it's not good news that the cause of the problem has still not been identified, there is more encouraging news today, with plenty of reporters claiming that the injury is not as bad as first feared.  Initial reports suggested the player could miss up to four weeks, meaning he would not be available for the Carabao Cup Final on February 25th.  That would be a huge blow both for the Reds and the player himself, after making such a strong start to his Liverpool career.

However, today's reports claim the midfielder could be back in action next week, with Liverpool taking an overly cautious approach to the situation.

Only time will tell how serious the injury is, and whilst it would be great to see Szoboszlai back in action, Liverpool must take care not to rush the player back too soon, with so many big games on the horizon.
