Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was forced off with an injury during the 1-1 Europa League draw with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night.
Now, it has emerged that the England international has injured the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee.
Henderson will miss six to eight weeks with his latest injury and this means that his season is effectively over and his participation in this summer’s European Championships is also in doubt.
Jordan Henderson has suffered knee ligament damage and will be out for six to eight weeks. Season over for #LFC captain.

The reactions from the fans on Twitter was divided. Some fans think that his absence will only benefit the Three
Lions during the Euro 2016.
Quite amazing really how Jordan Henderson has gone from underrated, to briefly appreciated and now people celebrate his injury. Wow. #LFC
