Major injury boost for Liverpool as England international steps up comeback

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been handed a major injury boost with the news that right-back Nathaniel Clyne is edging closer to full fitness.

The England international is set to play for the Anfield Club’s U23 side soon, after missing the entire season up until now with a back problem.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez have both done a fine job in deputising for the former Southampton man this season, and although Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp is delighted to see Clyne approaching full fitness, he will be facing a serious section dilemma at right-back once he has all three players available.

“Clyney obviously missed football! He loves it! It was a long time; it’s crazy how long it was and nobody could have imagined that, but it’s good [to have him back],” 

“All three can’t play, unfortunately! It’s quite specialist – so you either play or you’re not really involved.

“You can see Clyney is just a really good football player and when he’s fully fit, we will have a comfortable situation in that position.” Klopp said.
