Probably the weirdest headline we’ve ever had to write, to be honest…
At the time, we had no idea, but during Liverpool’s celebrations after the Super Cup victory, a fan ran onto the pitch and injured Adrian after accidentally falling over as he approached the Spaniard, who’d just saved from Tammy Abraham.
“I really don’t understand it why, in the world of social media where you are all on it, when we were all together a supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked [Adrian’s] ankle. Crazy,” Jurgen Klopp told the official website.
“Yesterday it was swollen. Today I spoke to him and he said it is better, much better than yesterday, but we have to see.
“Apart from that, yes, it was a brilliant night for him, for sure – not only because of the penalty [save], but especially because of the game. I think he saved the penalty and was in the mood he was in during the penalty shootout because of the game he’d played before.”
In the video below, you can see the moment in all its ridiculousness.
We can’t really blame the stewards. It’s one idiot’s stupid decision.
In Adrian’s place, we may see Andy Lonergan between the sticks v Southampton.
Hopefully he’s fit enough to start.
The moment when Adrian got taken out by a pitch invader after the Super Cup.
He is now a doubt for tomorrow’s game at Southampton due to a swollen ankle.
What an idiot! 😂pic.twitter.com/MZB6XqSNFD
