Danny Ings has suffered a knee injury which will see him miss the remainder of the season, according to The Telegraph.
In possibly the most awful news you’ll read all week, Danny Ings won’t kick a football for the rest of the 2016/17 season. The Telegraph report that the injury came during Liverpool’s English Football League Cup win over Spurs last week and that Ings is currently in London seeking advice from a specialist and will have surgery on the knee.
Last season, Ings suffered a cruciate ligament injury in his left knee, but this isn’t the same issue. Ings has now seriously damaged cartilage in his right knee and has been ruled out for the rest of the season as the Telegraph report that initial prognosis is a seven-month recovery.
It’s terrible luck for a player who was finding his feet under Klopp and hitting some serious form for the reserves and not to mention the fact that it compromises his development as a footballer as by the time he returns he will have missed almost two years of football through injury and at his age, it can be very damaging.
Jurgen Klopp and his players will be absolutely gutted as not only is Ings a great player, he’s a top bloke. I can’t deny to being more than a little outraged. I was seriously looking forward to seeing Ings playing consistently whenever that may have been.
