After sustaining an injury at Burnley last week, Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has vowed to “get back better and stronger”.
Gomez suffered a leg fracture after a challenge by Burnley’s Ben Mee and was ruled out for up to six weeks.
“Obviously I am devastated with the timing of it. You never want to get injured,” Gomez told the club’s website.
“I’ve been here a few years and I am still young, but it’s something I’m used to and I am capable of dealing with setbacks like this. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.
“You never want to be injured, as a player, you always want to play. It will be tough for me sitting out for a while, but I will do everything I can to get back better and stronger.”
The defender has been plagued by serious injuries since he joined Liverpool in 2015 but has become a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, forming a partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the defense.
