Liverpool striker Awoniyi suffers Union Berlin injury blow

Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi has suffered an injury setback with loan club Union Berlin.

The Nigerian has been impressive for Union Berlin this season, but has suffered a thigh injury which management fear will force him to the sidelines for an extended period.

"We fear a long absence," said Union managing director Oliver Ruhnert.

It's a blow for Union Berlin, with Awoniyi having scored five goals and provided four assists so far this season.

The striker's loan does not include a buy-back option.
