Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was the first to share the news about the seriousness of Jota’s injury during his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game against West Ham.
“Jota will be out for a long time, we are talking about months,” said the German manager. “We’ll see – I don’t want to put a number on it because I hope there will be a positive moment in rehab, but it will be a long time.”
Klopp continued: “Jota will miss the World Cup, a really serious calf injury and we need to recover it. The process begins and that’s it. Very sad news for the boy, for us and for Portugal.’
Liverpool and Portugal fans are hoping Jota can get back into action as soon as possible in the new year.
