An adductor issue has prematurely ended the breakthrough campaign of Spanish teenager Stefan Bajcetic
Stefan Bajcetic, an 18-year-old midfielder for Liverpool, will miss the remainder of the season due to an adductor injury.
Bajcetic made his debut for Liverpool as a substitute in August’s 9-0 victory over Bournemouth and played in 19 games in total, starting in 11. He scored his first senior goal in December’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa and started in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 against Real Madrid, which Liverpool lost 5-2.
Bajcetic promises to come back stronger
On Thursday, Bajcetic announced on social media that he will be out for the rest of the season due to an adductor injury, which also prevented him from playing in Liverpool’s 1-0 loss in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid.
“Unfortunately I’ve picked up an injury that will keep me out until the end of the season,” he wrote on Instagram. “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.”
Klopp has had a disappointing season so far, with injuries to key players such as Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, and Luis Diaz.
The team has been knocked out of all cup competitions and is currently sixth in the Premier League table, trying to qualify for the Champions League. Liverpool’s next game is against Manchester City on April 1, following their elimination from the FA Cup and an upcoming international break.
