Klopp confirms Liverpool captain Henderson will miss rest of season with knee injury

Jordan Henderson will miss the rest of Liverpool's Premier League campaign with a knee injury, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Henderson underwent a scan at Melwood on Thursday, and while he will not require surgery on the injury, he will miss the final four games of the season.

Klopp did, however, suggest the 30-year-old would be fit for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

Speaking at a press conference to preview his side's game with Burnley on Saturday, Klopp said: "It is the best possible of all the bad news. It is a knee injury, but there is no surgery needed.

"He will not play again for the rest of this season, but I'm positive he will be with us for the start of next season. He's a quick healer.

"It's not too cool, but it's the best news we could get."

Liverpool take on Burnley at Anfield on Saturday and follow that up with games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle.

The Chelsea fixture will see them receive the Premier League trophy, and Klopp confirmed that Henderson would be the one to lift it, even though he will not be involved that day.

He added: "It was an awful moment when he left the pitch, we knew immediately. In Germany, we would say that Hendo is an animal, he fights with everything. If he has pain he will never tell you. So you knew something had happened which should not have happened.

"It was a complete mood killer. We won away, and I said to the players we should be happy with that, but then everyone realises Hendo is round the corner injured. Everybody felt for him.

"He deserves to lift the trophy, and he will lift the trophy. No surgery needed, that's the good news. All the rest, we can make our own decisions. Hendo will lift the trophy."
