Liverpool have been dealt yet another injury blow with Jurgen Klopp claiming in his pre-match press conference that Ozan Kabak could miss the weekend clash against Fulham.
The Turkish defender played in the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea last night but the boss has now confirmed an injury problem.
Kabak arrived on loan from Schalke during the January transfer window and has made five appearances for Liverpool.
The youngster is still getting up to speed with English football and the jury perhaps remains out on him.
At this stage, it’s not certain whether or not the club will activate such a clause but it’s fair to say this setback is a blow.
With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Ben Davies all injured, Liverpool’s situation is getting desperate.
Supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with the current campaign and this news will do little to lift their spirits.
Klopp has tried several different partnerships at the back this season and another could be utilised at the weekend.
Here is what supporters have been saying regarding Kabak’s injury concern.
WHAT HAPPENS IN TRAINING?????

Well it’s about time he played Phillips full time and only now Davies may get a chance 😞things are bad in the camp

Phillips should be playing anyway. Kabak hasn't filled me with any confidence since joining. Looks lost on even basic whereabouts

Fitness staff are a joke. The others kept the players fit, donno why they were replaced. Joke honestly

The CB position is definitely cursed. Let’s bin it and play a 2-5-3

It’s becoming a little unbelievable. Like are these guys actually injured? Or is this a message?
