Young Brazilian Allan Rodriguez de Souza’a chances of making the grade at Anfield are looking slimmer by the day, sadly.
The midfielder has just had his loan spell in Cyprus at Apollon cut short and been sent back to Melwood due to a shoulder injury which he’ll need surgery on.

The 21-year-old won’t be able to play again for four months, which ends his current season and possibly the beginning of the next one, too.
What’s even more irritating is that Allan still doesn’t qualify for a UK work permit, Goal claim, which means he’ll spend 2018/19 somewhere else in Europe.
So far since we brought him over from Internacional, we’ve sent Allan to Finland, Belgium, Germany and Cyprus – with mixed success.
He’s very talented and possesses great technical ability as a deep-lying playmaker, but he’s not shown anywhere near enough in inferior leagues to suggest he’s capable of making it in the Premier League.
Still, Jurgen Klopp rates him highly based on what he’s seen of him in training.
We wish him plenty of luck in his recovery.
