As Liverpool needs to put its Arsenal loss behind it with a win over Burnley, supporters are keen to learn more regarding the injury status of one of the Reds’ key midfielders. With more on that and a claim regarding a potential sporting director target, here's your round-up of the latest Liverpool news. No injury is good for a footballer, obviously. However, Dominik Szoboszlai may have suffered one of the more concerning in that it appears to be a recurrence of one from which he had appeared to have recovered.

Even if not at their best, Liverpool's offense belies City's attacking farce

To recap: he was absent for four games with a hamstring problem before returning to provide an assist against Norwich and score against Chelsea, only to then miss the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal with the same issue. Rumors circulated that he may have been looking at a seven or eight game spell on the sidelines, but these fears have since been eased by a story on Rousing The Kop.

It has reported that Szoboszlai returned to Hungary for treatment from sports therapist Franz Leberbauer, with whom he has previously worked. Liverpool sanctioned that trip to see a specialist. The summer signing from RB Leipzig is now expected to return to Liverpool for assessment and further treatment. We will have to wait longer for a more accurate estimate of the time line for his return to first team action. The sooner, the better, as far as Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp and Reds supporters are all concerned.

The news regarding Klopp’s decision to leave Liverpool sent shockwaves around the football world and continues to dominate all debate and discussion regarding the club. Nothing will change that state of affairs any time soon but it’s important to remember that the Reds have further important roles to fill. Chief among them is that of sporting director, the position most recently held by Jörg Schmadtke. West Ham’s technical director Tim Steidten, who was at Bayer Leverkusen when it appointed Xabi Alonso, had been rumored to be a potential candidate for the role.

Key hire 'not going to happen'

However, the idea of him joining Liverpool has been dismissed as “pure nonsense” in a story on Claret and Hugh. They claim that “a top source at the London Stadium made the point very clearly telling us that that was simply not going to happen as Tim [Steidten] develops an entirely new approach to the recruitment situation.” It seems the Reds will need to look elsewhere in order to fill this vital position, although nothing can be ruled out just yet.
