The headlines in Liverpool tonight as physiotherapy respond to criticism for injuries, and Sadio Mane defends Firmin

Here is the title of the evening in Liverpool on Tuesday, February 23rd.

Physio responds to injury criticism

Liverpool physiologist Chris Morgan has responded to criticism he has faced on social media, with some fans accusing him of a long club list of injuries.

The Reds currently have three central defenders of first choice – Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip – all of whom were on the sidelines until the end of the season.

In addition to this, Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kostas Tsimikas, Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson have all either been injured or have been on the sidelines this season.

Morgan received several criticisms on social networks because of this list of injuries, but he has now responded.

He tweeted in the early hours of Tuesday morning: “Don’t be nasty. Don’t tweet nonsense. Don’t confuse the correlation with cause-and-effect.”

Morgan later added, “One person is not a medical service / labor department.

“2 doctors, 4/5 physiotherapists, 3 soft tissue therapists, 1 rehabilitation coach, 1 head of recovery, 1 sports scientist, 1 head of fitness, 3 fitness and conditioning, 1 head of nutrition, 1 psychiatrist (iatrist), 1 radiologist. 2 (they) accidentally run out onto the field. “

Mane supports Firmin

Sadio Mane jumped to the defense of his striker Robert Firmin after the Liverpool striker came in due to recent criticism.

The Brazilian international was not in the best scoring form this season, especially at Anfield, but no Reds player has provided more assists than Firmino.

Mane believes his teammate deserves more credit than himself and Mohamed Salah for his performances.

He told ESPN Brazil: “He deserves more credit than me and Mo.

“But it’s part of football, (people) always see the goals scored. But without Bobby, I don’t see Mo and I scoring as many goals as we have, to be honest.

“He makes everything easier for us.”

Klopp provokes the Reds’ defiant claims

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has claimed there is “no chance” that his team has “lost” him this season, despite their recent form.

The champions are in sixth place and have lost their last four matches at Anfield, but with almost no Premier League title defense.

However, Klopp insisted his team had not lost the quality seen over the past season as the Reds cruised to their first title in 30 years.

“I always expected the season to be like this,” the Liverpool manager said.

“I didn’t expect to have injury problems in one critical position, but I knew it was going to be a campaign in which there would be a proper race to the last inch as we approached the finish line.

“Maintaining faith in yourself and those who care about helping you is absolutely essential. It’s being tested, of course – it’s a difficult time for all of us.

“I mean all of us in the LFC family: the players, the fans and me, as well as my staff. All of us.

“We are such a strong unit since I came here – we have come together to help each other and we have created wonderful moments that we will have forever. But it is more important now than ever before.

“Otherwise we haven’t lost it! There’s no way we’re going to lose it, but it’s always worth remembering how important it is for what we want to achieve.”
