Many Liverpool fans have been reacting to a further injury setback to add to the club’s already overcrowded treatment room.
The Athletic journalist James Pearce revealed on Wednesday that U23s attacker Jack Bearne would not take any further part in the 2020/21 campaign after undergoing ankle surgery to repair ligament damage, which was picked up during a training session in Kirkby.
The 19-year-old has been a regular in the Premier League 2 after making his move up from the U18s last summer, scoring three goals and providing one assist from 11 appearances (Transfermarkt).
Bearne made his first-team debut during his side’s 5-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last season, to which he played just 25 minutes.
Will Jack Bearne break into the Liverpool first-team?
With this in mind, and with the current injury headache that manager Jurgen Klopp is putting up with, supporters started to believe that is a “curse” on the club.
Reactions to Pearce’s new injury update
“We really are jinxed”
“Another injury at the AXAdent & Emergency centre.”
“Cursed season, null and void.”
“We are cursed. Hope Jack makes a full recovery”
“Even the youngsters can’t escape it.”
