Alisson Becker had 6 toes amputated last night after suffering severe frostbite during Liverpool’s 4 – 1 loss to Manchester City at Anfield. The Brazilian gifted City 2 goals from misplaced passes.
“It’s unfortunate,” Jürgen Klopp told Soccer on Sunday. “Ali’s lost the middle 3 toes on each foot. So now both feet look like the letter U. I’m not sure how that’ll affect him, to be honest. It’s not something I’ve seen before. If the toes are not important, then we move on. If it turns out they are important, we may need a keeper who has more toes than Ali.”
“We did not lose the game because of Ali’s toes,” said the German. “We lost it because of Pickford. He ruined everything. So help me, I will pull his little T-Rex arms off and beat him to death with them.”
“Everything is shit,” muttered Klopp, with a prolonged sigh.
