A number of Liverpool supporters have been reacting positively to Jurgen Klopp’s injury update on Joe Gomez.
This season has been a disastrous one in the injury department for the Reds, with the Premier League champions having to make do without a host of key men.
While Virgil van Dijk’s long-term absence has clearly been the biggest blow to Liverpool’s campaign, Gomez has also been a huge loss.
The 23-year-old has been out since November, having suffered a serious knee injury while on international duty with England. It has put paid to the centre-back’s hopes of playing at Euro 2020 in what is the latest cruel setback in an injury-plagued career to date.
Speaking on Saturday, however, Klopp gave some positive news regarding Gomez, confirming via James Pearce on Twitter that the defender is now running outside for the first time again.
Klopp on Gomez: "Joe is outside running now. A big step. All looks fine. No reaction in his knee. He's in a good way but it takes time."
