Danny Ings is ready to fight for his place at Liverpool after working his way through rehabilitation on his knee.
The former Burnley striker went down with a knee injury in Liverpool’s fourth round victory over Tottenham in the League Cup last November.
It was the second year in a row that the 24-year-old has sustained a significant knee injury after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his first training session under Jurgen Klopp in October 2015.
Suffice to say it’s reasonable for most football fans to be somewhat unaware of Danny Ing’s whereabouts, and the fact that he is indeed still a Liverpool player, after making just 11 appearances for the first team over the last two seasons.
Danny Ings has shared some of his progress on social media, showing parts of his individual training program at Melwood.
The July 12 friendly against Tranmere Rovers, Liverpool’s first ahead of the new campaign, is thought to come too soon for Ings, but he will likely feature at some point during pre-season.
Liverpool have added Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke to their attacking ranks already, while Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi round out their remaining striking options.
Danny Ings faces an uphill battle to break back into the first team but has given himself every chance of turning his Anfield career around.
