Liverpool’s Portugal forward Diogo Jota has been ruled out of the World Cup with a calf injury, according to Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.
The 25-year-old was taken off on a stretcher in the final moments of his side’s 1-0 Premier League win against Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday. Klopp said Jota will be out for a “long time” and “we talk about months”.
He missed the start of the season with a hamstring injury before returning as a substitute in a goalless draw against Everton on 3 September. Jota played for Portugal during the international break later that month and scored in a 4-0 win over the Czech Republic.
