Just a question for the Eds, I'm aware it will have nothing to do with our current injury blight, but what's the story behind Jose Luich and his departure from Liverpool.

From what I saw and read he was a highly respected and well liked physio who really got on with the players. Which is why I think it's so bizarre he chose to leave, it also doesn't help with his comments to someone on Instagram where he claimed 'Liverpool need to change a lot of things for me to come back'.

Was it simply a career choice or was it much deeper? He's also been seen on twitter agreeing with a comment made by someone about how a lack of investment was costing us in some way and talking about the lack of investment costing Liverpool in the long run. Thoughts on this?

Would also like to know about our current physio and the opinions of him within the club (ex Arsenal) .

Just think it's rather interesting overall. Or it could all just be blown out of proportion.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure to be honest. It was made out that he chose to leave to make the next step in his career but his comments since make it seem different. I would guess from what he has said that he was probably after a promotion which wasn't possible with mini Klopp there, as the roles would clash. He was very close to the players yes. Physios are often used as sounding boards by them, so that is not a surprise.

As for the investment, FSG pulled up the constant investment due to the pandemic and it meant we couldn't get a centre back in. That's all he means I think.

I have not had time to really take any notice of who replaced him. I will try and have a look into it this week for you.}

Thanks very much Ed001.

His comments suggest that there was more to it than just to pursue another aspect of his career.

As for the ex Arsenal coach I know nothing about him. Would be interesting to get some form of insight. I am pleased however that we seem to be trying to rehabilitate players to prevent reoccurring injuries.

{Ed001's Note - rehab to prevent recurring injury is standard I thought.} Become a Patron!

I mean over what seems to be more extensive periods of time.

I'd hope rehabilitation was standard! Although maybe they've been skipping it with Joel Matip the last few years.

{Ed001's Note - the problem that usually happens is when a team is desperate to get the player back due to being in a bad run. Otherwise that is what I thought had become standard in recent years. It seems more of a case of trying to make the new guy sound better than the old guy to me. Or maybe just trying to fill in space in an article or press release etc.} Become a Patron!

I suppose so. I mean if you actually look at the injuries this season the majority have occured whilst in games. So the rhetoric of Klopp overworking his players doesn't work for me, a tight schedule with little rotation (due to the previous injury issues) has caused it.

VVD impact injury, same as Jota and Matip. Milner, Henderson muscular during a game. Joe Gomez from England Training. The only people I've noticed who've been actually injured in training is Fabinho, Naby and Tsimikas along with Matip previously (although feel the majority were knocks from games) .

Salah, Trent, Mane, Ali, Shaqiri have all suffered from C.V..

It's been a season from hell in all honesty and we certainly haven't had the rub of the green in any way. Just think people are looking to blame everything on someone when sometimes it's just plain unlucky.

We're due some luck at some point surely?
