A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting to James Pearce’s injury update on Jordan Henderson, with plenty of negativity in the air.
The Reds have had a season to forget in 2020/21, with their hopes of defending the Premier League title evaporating dramatically after Christmas.
While Jurgen Klopp and his players certainly deserve an element of blame for what has happened, injuries have played a key role in their shortcomings.
Liverpool have had to put up with an endless stream of fitness issues to key players, with centre-back trio Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
On top of that, Klopp has also had to make do without the likes of Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Thiago, James Milner, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota for periods, among others.
Although Liverpool’s injury woes have eased a little in recent weeks, Henderson is one of those now sidelined, having picked up a groin issue against Everton last month.
On Sunday, Pearce confirmed in The Athletic that the skipper will likely miss the two Champions League quarter-final clashes against Real Madrid next month.
Liverpool fans bemoan Pearce’s update
These Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to provide their thoughts on the “sad” news about the Reds captain.
“I hope to lord that you are joking. we need him on the 2nd leg!“
“Whaaat? Did he lose a leg or something?“
“Rumour has it one day James Pearce will actually give Liverpool fans some good news“
“Damn not even 2nd leg?”
“This is so sad“
