Eintracht Frankfurt loanee Allan Rodrigues de Souza has returned to parent club Liverpool after picking up an injury, The Liverpool Offside reports.

Souza suffered lateral collateral ligament damage during a training session with the Bundesliga side last week and is now expected to return to Liverpool to undergo his rehabilitation with the club’s medical staff.
