Darwin Núñez was a late withdrawal from Uruguay’s upcoming international fixtures due to an injury he sustained in the Bernabeu.
The Athletic has revealed that Núñez cut his ankle during Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat in Spain.
He will now undergo treatment in the UK rather than joining up with his international team mates.
Klopp took Núñez off in the second half much to the ire of Liverpool fans on social media. However, more has been revealed as Núñez picked up an injury during the game.
He will have two weeks to recover before Liverpool face in to a number of tricky fixtures with games against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal coming up.
