‘Bit of confusion’: Ian Doyle weighs in with intriguing Szoboszlai injury update

Posted by

Will Dominik Szoboszlai be out for about a month or so? Apparently, the answer isn’t as clear as we’ve been led to believe by Hungarian reports.

The Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle weighed in on the situation on X (formerly Twitter), noting that the club have yet to put an official timescale on the midfielder’s absence.

Hungarian outlet Index had suggested the former RB Leipzig star would face three to four weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring issue.

Which is it?

It seems like a potentially positive update for Szoboszlai, though we’d certainly appreciate some clarity on the issue from the club.

We’re fortunate that our upcoming games don’t seem too challenging in and around the League Cup final meeting with Chelsea.

That said, Liverpool’s midfield looked notably weaker without the Hungarian international on the right side – an issue Jurgen Klopp specifically bemoaned after the 3-1 loss to Arsenal.

With several key stars in line to return (or having already returned), we’re hopeful we won’t be without Szoboszlai for a sustained period of time.

  1. The club should say absolutely nothing. Why should they, just so they can keep us informed? No need to, if it confuses upcoming opponents then that can only be a good thing, let it be, let the story run wild, if it’s true, so be it, if it isn’t, good.

    The one thing we don’t need is any clarity from the club. The less Burnley know about the lineup they will face, the better.
