Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Danny Ings will be part of his plans heading into the new campaign.
The 23-year-old joined the club last summer, but is yet to play under the German manager after picking up a serious knee injury back in October.
Ings is now back in training after recovering from his set-back, and Klopp has revealed that he’s been impressed with the man signed from Burnley last summer:
“He cannot be [match] fit in a champion way, not 100 per cent fit of course, but he’s in a really good way,” he is quoted by the Express.
“His first session on the pitch was like he was never away, but then his body shoots back the next morning.
“So that’s how it is. Maybe it’s not enough time for him, but next season, we’ll have a lot of fun with him for sure.”
Given his recent comeback, it is doubtful that Ings will return to action in the coming weeks given that there are only two Premier League matches left before the Europa League final against Sevilla.
The Reds don’t have much to play for in the domestic league as they sit in eighth place, but they can still ensure Champions League football next season if they win the Europa League.
Ings only managed to feature eight times in all competitions for his side before his ACL blow, scoring three goals in the process.
