Liverpool's Super Cup hero could miss this weekend

A bizarre injury could keep Liverpool's Super Cup hero out of this week's game

Adrian San Miguel's roller coaster ride at Liverpool has not come to an end, as he could sit the next match out due to an untimely physical problem.

Just when Liverpool seemed to have found a reliable goalkeeper to fill in for Alisson Becker while injured, Jürgen Klopp may be forced to leave the UEFA Super Cup hero, Adrian San Miguel, out of the match against Southampton.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Reds' German boss spoke about his squad selection ahead of the second game of the season. Surprisingly, Klopp revealed that Adrian had picked up a bizarre injury during the title celebrations on Wednesday, "thanks" to a Liverpool fan that stormed into the pitch, slipped and hit the pile of players, hurting the Spanish shot-stopper.

"When we were all together a supporter jumped on us, he was chased by some security guys slipped and kicked his ankle. It is crazy. Yesterday it was swollen. It is better today, much better than yesterday," Klopp said.

Here's the moment when it all turned sour for the Spanish goalie.

Klopp went on to discuss how this potential injury will be treated.

"He will not go for a scan. We will wait for the swelling to go down. He had that and then we had a four-hour flight back so you can imagine that does not help the swelling. He could not have played immediately after we landed in Liverpool. He looks better but the decision will be made tomorrow," Klopp added.

If Liverpool is unable to nurse Adrian back to fitness, 35-year-old Andy Lonergan would be handed the responsibility of defending Liverpool's net, in what could be a new Premier League record for the oldest goalkeeper ever to make his debut in an EPL game.
