After suffering a horrific knee injury, Danny Ings was ruled out for seven to nine months and has now returned to Melwood training complex to begin his rehabilitation.
Ings had surgery on the damaged cartilage in his right knee in London last week and after the success of the surgery, Klopp confirmed that rehab has already begun.
Klopp said, according to Liverpool’s official website, “the surgery was very positive and the rehab has started already.
“We will give him all the time he needs and then he will be back again and will be a Liverpool player, 100 per cent,” the manager said last Friday.
“Everything will be good at the end but now it’s time to work on the comeback.”

Everyone associated with the club is gutted as Ings was just returning to full fitness after he missed the majority of last season with another knee injury. Not only is the Englishman a talented footballer, he is a great guy and the social media reaction from his teammates suggests they are as broken up about it as he is.
Klopp is ready to enter the transfer market to find cover for Danny Ings but maintains that the forward will have a place in the team when he makes his return. While addressing reporters at his pre-Watford press conference, Klopp answered a question about what the situation will be when Ings returns. Will he be with the club or not? The German simply said, “Liverpool player, 100 per cent.”
