Klopp will be without the England international for games against Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City, in addition to the two-legged Champions League playoff tie with Hoffenheim.
And Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen has once again questioned the sense in Klopp’s methods, which, he believes can cause injuries to players, report the Liverpool Echo.
And Verheijen, who has been branded ‘Raymond the Twitter Egg’ by Reds fans due to his lack of profile picture on the social media site, has once again criticised the Liverpool manager.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday afternoon, Verheijen said: “OMG. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp exhausted his players on purpose one day before pre-season friendly games.
“So the Lallana injury is just the logical consequence of a deliberate choice to force tired players to play games after accumulating fatigue.
“Players who accumulate fatigue have a slower nervous system & less coordination. For these players playing a game is like Russian roulette.”
The Dutchman has been a repeated critic of Klopp and his gegenpressing tactics, having regularly lined up to attack the Reds boss time and again last season.
Klopp himself was even moved to respond in a press conference last year, saying: “We play two games in 48 hours, there will be injuries and then some Dutch guy (on Twitter) will say things.”
