Jordan Henderson has been pictured back on the training pitch ahead of Liverpool’s final game of the season against Crystal Palace.
Reds captain Henderson has been out since the end of February, when he sustained a groin injury in the Merseyside Derby.
Henderson had to go undergo surgery, sidelining him during the run-in with his team-mates scrapping for a top-four finish.
But he trained with the group in Kirkby on Thursday and tweeted afterwards that ‘it’s been a good day’ and that he is ‘so happy’ to be back.
It’s unclear if Henderson will be cleared for involvement against Palace, but victory at Anfield would seal Champions League football for Jurgen Klopp’s side barring an inexcusable collapse by Tottenham at Leicester.
Klopp would of course love to have his skipper available for such a fixture but may be wary of rushing him back to action.
Henderson’s training return is also good news for Gareth Southgate as he prepares to name his England squad for the European Championships.
Here’s how Liverpool fans responded to the images of their captain’s return.
These Reds go wild at Henderson post
“If king jordamessi plays on sunday then that’ll guarantee top 4”
“Welcome back kinggggg”
“WHAT A DAY IT’S BEEN”
“Our skipper is back, YESSSSSS”
