Adam Lewis banned for three months
Liverpool left-back Adam Lewis returned to Merseyside for an evaluation after injuring his foot in training on Monday. The 21-year-old is currently on loan for one season at Scottish Premiership team Livingston.
Lewis had been substituted in his last two appearances for the Lions as he failed to ignore an injury he sustained during the warm-up for the Scottish League Cup loss to Rangers.
Things then got worse for the England U-20 international as he broke his foot in training on Monday.
Livingston boss David Martindale told the Courier: âAdam is back at Liverpool and will probably be 12 weeks old, he broke his fifth metatarsus.
âWe were doing a cool-down, playing little games, no contact, he went to shoot with his left foot and rolled his foot slightly.
“They took him to Liverpool and are going to pin him down, so it’s probably a 12 week injury.”
“I feel for Adam because I think he was touching a bit of form”,
âHe was getting there, he understood and adapted to the Scottish game. So I am disgusted with the child.
âThere is a lot of pressure coming from Liverpool. These loan players are coming to Scotland and they really need to play if they have a future at their parent club.
“So they come and sometimes they are shocked at the level and intensity of Scottish football.
“But they come to impress their parent club, which is the most frustrating thing for young Adam, because I really feel like he was there or so.”
Lewis made just one senior appearance for Liverpool in the FA Cup replay victory over Shrewsbury at Anfield in February 2020. Since then and before moving to Livingston in the summer, he has also had loan spells in Amiens in France and in Plymouth Argyle.
