Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says t will “take time” for Alisson to heal from his “proper injury”.

Klopp said in mid-August that Alisson would be out for “the next few weeks” after revealing the “not too cool” news about the Brazilian’s calf injury.

The 26-year-old damaged the calf during the first half of Liverpool‘s 4-1 Premier League victory over Norwich.

“He [has] made steps, of course, but it was a proper injury, so it will still take time,” Klopp told reporters.

“How it always is with professional sportsmen, when you have a muscle thing and it takes long, then it takes a while as well until you can bring the muscle to at least the same level it was before.

“A calf muscle is pretty important for jumping – and for a goalie, it is quite important that you can jump from time to time, so it will take time.

“But, thank god – and hopefully it stays like this – we have a fit Adrian in the back and now in charge, which is good. So far, I am really happy with everything I saw.

“He is a good guy, which is important as well, but most importantly of course he can catch balls and that’s good as well.

“The solution we found for it is really good, but of course it would be better if Ali was around but that will take still some time.”
