Liverpool player now ruled out for the season with injury

Liverpool midfielder Stefan Bajcetic has confirmed that he’ll miss the rest of the season through injury.

The 19-year-old has been a breakout star for the Reds this season, quickly becoming a key player in the midfield. But having been ruled out of last night’s trip to Real Madrid, Bajcetic today took to Instagram to confirm that his season is over.

“Unfortunately I’ve picked up an injury that will keep me out until the end of the season,” wrote the youngster.

“It’s very sad to say goodbye to this amazing season for me but I understand this is part of football and will only make me stronger physically and mentally.

“I would also like to say thank you to you reds for all the support through the season and I assure you I will do my best to be back stronger than ever.”

Another one Bajcetic the dust

What a season, eh Reds. Up to this point, one of the few bright spots of a pretty dreadful campaign has been the emergence of Bajcetic.

His ability to come in and improve the Liverpool midfield was actually maybe even the best thing about the whole season full stop.

But no, it appears we’re not even allowed to have that. Now, the Reds are back to the gang of misfits they started the season with in the midfield.

If anyone needed further proof to how little Klopp trusts the likes of Curtis Jones and Naby Keita, they got it last night. Both players remained rooted to the bench while 37-year-old James Milner did his best to cope with Real Madrid’s silky midfield. A sorry state of affairs.

Without Bajcetic now, Klopp is going to have to reintroduce one of them to the fold. Thiago remains injured with no return date in sight while Fabinho has reverted back to his struggling self over the last couple of games.

Clearly, this is just the start for the 18-year-old at Liverpool. He looks set to be an even bigger part of the squad next season. But given the history of struggles to youngsters like Jones and Kaide Gordon, this is still a very worrying turn of events. Regardless of what it means to Liverpool in the short-term, let’s hope Stefan is back in good nick for pre-season.
