Liverpool youngster promoted to first team ‘deeply saddened’ after devastating injury blow

Harvey Blair, an academy forward, trained this week with the Reds’ starting lineup.

After tearing his meniscus earlier this week, Harvey Blair will miss a large portion of Liverpool’s preseason activities.

Along with players like Lewis Kumas, Dominic Corness, and Bobby Clark, the 19-year-old forward was promoted to the AXA Training Center for the start of preseason on Saturday.

However, the versatile forward is now expected to miss some time due to a serious knee injury, which he revealed less than a week after preseason training started for the 2023–24 season.

“After a positive start to the new season, I am deeply saddened to say that I sustained a meniscus tear during training earlier this week,” Blair wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday night.It is undoubtedly a terrible setback, but I am confident that I can get through it with the right attitude and God’s assistance. Reds, see you soon.

Blair, who made his senior debut in a League Cup match against Preston North End in October 2021, spent a lot of time recovering from injuries last season and was therefore unavailable for much of 2023 for Barry Lewtas’ under-21 team.

Although Portsmouth and Aberdeen were said to be interested in the teenager, he was expected to leave Anfield on loan this summer.

Due to this setback, the forward will be unable to participate in the Reds’ upcoming training camp in the German Black Forest, where they will play friendlies against Bundesliga 2 opposition before briefly returning to Merseyside in preparation for their lucrative tour of Singapore at the end of the month.
