​Sakho injury not as serious as first feared reveals Liverpool boss Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that defender Mamadou Sakho, who is on loan at Crystal Palace, has not suffered a ligament injury but is likely to miss the rest of the season.

"First of all, I think you saw the pictures with Mamadou, it looked really awful so it could have been nearly everything," Klopp said.

"Since we got the images from Crystal Palace, we know there are no ligaments involved, so in a situation like this - and maybe not for Crystal Palace - but for the player, it's the best thing he could get.

"I think he is out for a few weeks, but that is something that will be good at the end, but at the end of the season each injury is a big blow because there is not a lot of time to recover."
