Liverpool boss confirms forward star set to begin light training

Liverpool have been boosted as Danny Ings begins light training after suffering a rupture to his anterior cruciate ligament back in October, Liverpool Echo reports.

The 23-year-old is not likely to make a return this season following the injury, but is already beginning his rehabilitation as he is well on his way to making a full recovery.

Ings was keeping fit in the gym during his time on the sidelines, with manager Jurgen Klopp confirming that the striker is set to begin light training outside.

“I had lunch with Ingsy a few minutes ago,” he said.

“He’s not in the perfect way, but Tuesday will be his first time outside again.

“He’s still a long way away from being available but he’s here.”

He was on a good run of form before the lengthy knock, scoring three goals in eight appearances for the Reds since his arrival from Burnley in the summer.

After his displays for Klopp, he even managed to register his debut for the England national team when they faced Lithuania before suffering the setback.

The forward caught the eye of a host of clubs during the summer given his displays with his former side last term when he managed to score 11 goals from a total of 35 league appearances.
