Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gives positive Liverpool FC injury update ahead of new season
The Liverpool FC star feels like he is in good shape as the England star continues his recovery from an injury
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists he is moving in the right direction ahead of Liverpool FC’s new Premier League campaign.
The England international moved to the Reds in a £40m deal from their Premier League rivals Arsenal in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Oxlade-Chamberlain made a slow start to his Liverpool FC career but the attacking midfielder came into his own in the second half of the season.
The 24-year-old scored in Liverpool FC’s 4-3 win against Manchester City in the Premier Leaguer to end the Citizens’ unbeaten start to the campaign.
Oxlade-Chamberlain netted in a 3-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s side in the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield.
However, the versatile midfielder’s season was cut short when he suffered a season-ending knee problem in Liverpool FC’s 5-2 win against Serie A giants AS Roma in the Champions League semi-finals.
But the Liverpool FC star is well on the road to recovery ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
“It’s alright. I saw the surgeon just now, he’s happy with everything, so we’re moving in the right direction,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told the England team’s Youtube channel.
“It’s just obviously going to be a long process and a boring one, but that’s life. I’m all good.
“I’ve got to stay positive, it’s not going to get me anywhere if I’m not positive around the lads and just in general. It’s life, I’m still living so I’m happy.”
Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last month.
The Reds signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Roma in the summer transfer window so far.
Liverpool FC finished in fourth spot last term.
