‘Great news’: Some Liverpool fans react to Klopp’s update on injured ace

Joe Gomez

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Joe Gomez is back in training for the Merseyside outfit.

The 21-year-old came through a session yesterday morning for Liverpool, and his return will be a big boost for the Reds, in their bid to finish above Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Gomez played a key role for Liverpool in the first half of the season, before he sustained an ankle injury in December.

His return to training comes at a crucial time for his side, with Liverpool left with just seven Premier League games until the end of the season.

Before he missed 22 games for Liverpool, the six-cap England international formed a formidable partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defence.

However, the Β£31.50m-ratedΒ centre-back is not expected to be rush back into the first-team fold just yet.

Speaking about his return to training, Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s official website:

“It is nice – Joe is not injured anymore and nearly fit.

“After a long time, I think Joe was out for 15 weeks, that is long, so he needs to now create the basis again for the rest of the season.”

Some sections of Liverpool fans took to Twitter, expressing their delight at the news that Gomez has returned to training and below are some of the best selected tweets…
