Jurgen Klopp criticises Mohamed Salah for dive vs Chelsea

The Liverpool defender has undergone surgery on an ankle problem, initially sustained on worldwide duty against Holland in March, which will rule him out of the Champions League final at the end of the month then the World Cup.

Since the end of March, Joe Gomez has suffered problems with his ankle after sustaining an injury while representing England against the Netherlands in a friendly.

Everyone gets excited by these kind of games - everyone wants to be there to support the team and cheer them on to win another European Cup - and continue this great run we're in and which we have always enjoyed [in this competition].

As it stands, it remains unclear whether Gomez will be available to feature in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup.

However, Gomez is expected to be back fit for the start of Liverpool's pre-season training in July after completing a rehabilitation program.

And then it's on to the Champions League final on May 26, where Liverpool will face Real Madrid at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kiev, and look to secure a sixth title.

Gomez's injury limits further manager Jurgen Klopp's options ahead of Sunday's final Premier League match at home to Brighton.

He joins an injury list which includes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) and Joel Matip (thigh), who also had their campaigns ended prematurely, while Emre Can has not played since mid-March because of a back injury.

"We had these situations a few times and it will be, for sure, exciting because Brighton is in a good moment, they played fantastic against [Manchester] United".
