Liverpool loanee Allan Rodrigues de Souza has suffered a major setback after suffering a major knee injury which led to the tearing of his ligament.

The Brazilian who is currently on loan with Frankfurt suffered the injury in training according to German outlet Kicker and will be out until 2019. He is reported to have left Germany to Melwood and will head straight to the treatment room.

Allan Rodrigues de Souza has been on loan in the German Bundesliga not just to secure a regular playing time but to be able to secure a working permit in Europe.

He has played in Finland, Belgium, Cyprus and now Germany so as to be able to gain the needed experience to compete in the robust Liverpool team but that is exacted to take longer period with the player already set aback for many months of his career.

Allan Rodrigues de Souza has had starts this season and coming from the bench on two occasions which means he is not an active member of the German outfit and may not return back to the club when he fully returns.

There are indications that the Red will have him sold as soon as he returns fully instead of sanctioning a loan deal for him.
