Liverpool defender Gomez undergoes knee op; season likely over

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has undergone successful knee surgery on Thursday - with his season likely to be over.

Gomez has undergone surgery to repair a tendon in his knee with Liverpool deeming the operation to be a success.

He was injured during a routine England training session at St George's Park yesterday.

Gomez was scanned at St George's Park last night and underwent the procedure to repair a tendon in his knee. Crucially, surgeons did not discover any damage to his cruciate, medial or lateral ligaments in his knee; had that been the case, his recovery would have been even more problematic, reports the Daily Mail.

Liverpool will not rule Gomez out for the rest of the season and have not put a timeframe on when they hope he will be back in a Red shirt but it is understood the rehabilitation will be a long one and he faces a challenge to be ready for the European Championships next summer.
