It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website here. “I don’t want to make (an) exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure.”We have to see. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure. I saw already like six weeks’ and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career.”So I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now, but he is not in for the next few weeks.”Following the Super Cup match in Istanbul, Liverpool travel to Southampton for their second league match on Saturday.Also Read | Liverpool thump promoted Norwich City in Premier League openerAlso Read | From VAR debut to Chelsea defeat: Talking points from the Premier League weekendAlso SeeadvertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
