Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain breaks silence on his injury heartache

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted he is ‘absolutely devastated’ to be ruled out for the rest of the season – and the World Cup.

The Liverpool midfielder suffered knee ligament damage in the Reds’ 5-2 Champions League semi-final first leg victory over Roma at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Oxlade-Chamberlain also paid tribute to the Liverpool fan left fighting for his life after being attacked prior to last night’s match.

The former Arsenal star wrote on Twitter: "Absolutely devastated to have picked up this injury at such a crucial time in the season.

"Gutted I won’t be able to play any further part now in our Champions League run for Liverpool, and also the World Cup with England.

"But now it’s all about supporting the boys and getting behind them. I know we have what it takes to do something special in this tournament.

"I’m going to give everything I have to make sure I’m back as quickly as possible.

"However, this all pales in comparison to how the family of the Liverpool fan badly hurt before last night’s game must be feeling. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones.

"Thanks for all your kind words, messages and support. I’ll see you soon."
