ROBERT FIRMINO has avoided any “lasting damage” after suffering an eye injury against Spurs but is doubtful for the Champions League clash with PSG on Tuesday.
The Liverpool star was forced off the field after Jan Vertonghen poked his finger into the eye of the Brazilian.
Firminho has since been discharged from Moorfields Eye Hospital in good health but is not certain to be fit for Liverpool’s opening Champions League group stage clash.
A statement from Liverpool read: “A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage.
“The issue will be monitored and treated by medical staff before any decision is made on whether he will figure against PSG.
“At this stage, the No 9 has not been ruled out.
“Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates following the positive assessment.”
There was also a message from the man himself as Firmino took to Instagram to put fans’ minds at ease.
He wrote: “It was just a scare, my eye is ok and so am I. Thank you for all the support and see you soon.”
Firmino will now be aiming to return for Liverpool’s tough European clash against French big spenders PSG.
The Reds have been handed a tough group after reaching last year’s final, with Italian aces Napoli also standing in the way of a place in the knockout stages.
