“Put his team first”, “Speedy recovery!” – Liverpool fans react to Joe Gomez’s season-ending injury

Joe Gomez will miss the Champions League final and possibly the World Cup, with Liverpool fans expressing their sympathy for the defender.

It was revealed on Tuesday that the 20-year-old will undergo ankle surgery, and will therefore play no part in Kiev later this month.

Gomez is also expected to miss the World Cup this summer, having previously emerged as a contender to start for the Three Lions in Russia.

It is a cruel blow for the defender, who had already missed a month of action with the same ankle injury before returning against West Brom in late April.

Supporters have been giving their thoughts on Twitter, Facebook and our forums, with many respecting Gomez’s decision to play through the pain barrier against the Baggies and Stoke City.

“That news does, to a great extent, explain why his performances were well off in both matches. Glad we only have two more matches to play at the rate players are falling out of contention through injury.”

Strictly Armchair on the forums.

“Come back soon Joe great kid with excellent prospects under Klopp.”

“And the injury list continues!”
