Henderson to miss out for the rest of the reason

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is set to miss
the rest of the season with a knee injury that will
keep him out for around six to eight weeks.
Henderson, 25, damaged the lateral collateral
ligament (LCL) in his left knee during Thursday’s
1-1 Europa League quarterfinal first leg draw at
Borussia Dortmund.
He underwent a scan in Liverpool on Friday
lunchtime to determine the extent of the injury, and
the club confirmed the result on their official
website.
The positive news for the player is that it is an LCL
problem rather than a cruciate ligament — which is
far more serious — and there is limited damage.
A typical LCL injury can often require three months
recovery, but Henderson will not need surgery, just
treatment and rehabilitation.
The Liverpool statement said: “Henderson’s issue
appears to be less serious and, provided all goes
well with the midfielder’s recovery programme, the
time out of action could be limited to between six
and eight weeks.”
England coach Roy Hodgson will name his Euro
2016 squad on May 12, three days before the end
of the Premier League season, with their first
warm-up game against Turkey on May 22.
Even in a best-case scenario, Henderson would
only be close to a return by that later date.
He would also be lacking match fitness, meaning
it would represent a major gamble by Hodgson to
pick him.
