Joe Gomez provides an update on his injury status for Liverpool fans
Joe Gomez says he is hoping to step up his rehabilitation from Achilles injury during Liverpool’s pre-season tour of USA.
The England Under-21 international has been sidelined since last October after the full-back suffered a serious knee injury during international duty as Jurgen Klopp took over the reins at Anfield.
Gomez hasn’t played a competitive minute under the former Borussia Dortmund boss since his appointment at Anfield after the youngster was signed by Klopp’s predecessor, Brendan Rodgers.
The 21-year-old made seven appearances in all competitions for Liverpool at the start of the 2015/16 campaign before injury struck just months after a £5m move from Charlton Athletic.
However, Gomez is remaining upbeat as he joined the Liverpool squad for their flight stateside ahead of their pre-season fixtures against Chelsea and AC Milan in California.
Gomez posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page:
“Looking forward to progressing my rehab on tour with the team… #LFC 🇺🇸”
Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season after a mixed campaign under Klopp.
The Reds will be hoping to register a win in their first top-flight game of the new season against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on 14 August.
