On Monday, Liverpool posted a video of Nathaniel Clyne in training with the first team as the England international nears a return to action.
Clyne has not yet turned out for Liverpool this season due to a back problem, but has been included in the club’s 25-man Champions League squad.
Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have impressed at right-back in Clyne’s absence, but the former Southampton defender is still regarded as Jurgen Klopp’s first choice in that position.
Clyne would also fancy his chances of being included in the England squad for the 2018 World Cup if he can prove his fitness in the final months of the 2017-18 campaign.
For now, the Liverpool fans are just delighted to see the defender, who is valued at £18m by transfermarkt.co.uk, back on the training field.
Indeed, it has been a tough period for Clyne, who has developed into one of the finest right-backs in the Premier League over the last couple of years.
A selection of the Liverpool fans reaction to Clyne’s return can be seen below:
Great to see this man back in training! 😄

Best right back at the club by a mile. Straight back in when you’re fully fit lad.

Good to see him back. Its really good we have got 2-3 defenders that can naturally play on the right & they are all English as well not many top teams in England can do the same.
Robertson, Van Dijk, Lovren & Clyne. Would love to see this back line tbh!! #LFC
