Gnagnon apologises for tackling Larouci


Sevilla’s Joris Nagnon has apologised for an “heinous” tackle on Liverpool youngster Yasser Larouci during a pre-season friendly in Boston.

The 18-year-old was carried off the pitch on a stretcher in the 80th minute of the 2-1 defeat with Jurgen Klopp stating the youngster was “lucky” not to have suffered a more serious injury in Boston.

Speaking to reporters at his post-match press conference, Klopp told reporters:”It’s much too early in the season to create headlines by saying what I think but it looks like he was lucky.”

“Of course, how it always is with these things we have to wait a little bit.”

Gnagnon was immediately shown a red card for the kick to Larouci’s leg while the scores were level at 1-1.
