The player is waiting on more texts to confirm the full extent of the damage, but the Daily Mail believe an operation is expected to be recommended.

Ronald Koeman said: “He stopped training last Monday, it looks like the hamstring.

“But we need to do more tests to know exactly what the injury is.”
