This is some hugely disappointing news for Adam Bogdan.
The Hungarian keeper has torn his ACL which will keep him out of action for nine months at least, meaning he’ll miss the entire season, reports the Echo.
He’s on loan at Championship side Wigan for the campaign, but will now be sent back to Liverpool where he’ll undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to regain full fitness and at some point find a new club.
The 29-year-old picked up the problem during his side’s goalless draw with Barnsley on Sunday.
“I have just received the result of my MRI scan, which showed that I tore my ACL in my right knee,” said Bogdan.
“It will be a lengthy recovery.
“I am sure I will return stronger.”
The stopper has no future at Liverpool, but because he’s contracted, our physios and medics will do all they can to return him to health. His contract expires at the end of this season though, so he’ll be released at this point – hopefully capable of earning a new deal elsewhere.
Bogdan played six times last term, but howlers against Watford and Exeter convinced Jurgen Klopp he wasn’t up to scratch.
We wish him well in his recovery and can assure him he’s at the best place for recuperation.
