Danny Ings delivers latest Liverpool injury update
Liverpool striker Danny Ings says he has to be even more dedicated following injury setback
Danny Ings says he has to be even more dedicated following the Liverpool striker’s injury blow.
Ings had been in impressive form for the Reds after he netted twice in five top-flight games for the Merseyside outfit before the 23-year-old suffered an injury setback in training.
The Liverpool striker ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and the summer signing is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the Premier League season.
However, Ings is rededicating himself in the gym as the former Burnley striker looks to bounce back even stronger from his setback.
“When you do get injured that is when you really earn your money because you are in the gym and having to fight to get yourself physically ready to go back in and get back to the standard,” Ings told the Daily Express.
“Being here at Liverpool it is going to be important to make sure I’m eating right, sleeping right, taking my vitamins, doing my gym work, icing my knee and resting every day.
“Otherwise you are playing catch-up. You have to be more dedicated when you are injured because there is more of a mountain to climb to reach the top.”
The England Under-21 international left Sean Dyche’s men in the summer on a free transfer after he scored an impressive 11 goals in 35 Premier League games.
Liverpool suffered a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday after goals from Yannick Bolasie and Scott Dann.
The Reds make the trip to Manchester City on 21 November.
