Liverpool fans went into a meltdown on Saturday night, when their star man Philippe Coutinho was taken off on a stretcher during the Reds’ 2-0 win over Sunderland.
The Brazilian was accidentally caught by the Sunderland midfielder Didier Ndong, and is suspected to have suffered a potentially serious ankle injury.
Manager Jurgen Klopp had his say on the injury, by stating: “Unfortunately I don’t know [the extent of the injury]. We will have to wait for a scan. What we know it is something with the ankle but that’s it.
“He was in pain but the pain got better. In the first moment it was very painful but at half-time he said it felt better. I have no idea what it is. I am quite an optimistic guy so I hope he can train tomorrow.”
Here’s how the twitter reacted to Coutinho’s injury:
Coutinho off. Illegal stream off. Life support machine off. Goodbye cruel world.

Liverpool fans celebrated Shaw's broken leg but want to act like victims when Coutinho's injured. Bunch of hypocrites
