The Ox train is coming, y’all. OK, while a return may still much too far away for any Reds fan’s liking, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made sure that the Anfield faithful know he’s working hard on the way back from last season’s devastating ACL injury.
The England international posted snippets from his rehabilitation regimen that shows him having stepped up his comeback with some strenuous-looking gym work, captioning one photo with the promise that he is “On the grind.”
Ruled out for the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign, the 25-year-old has detailed how he has had to fight through the disappointment of not being able to contribute to a team in which he had become a vital cog before his untimely injury in last season’s Champions League quarterfinal.
With Jürgen Klopp and the Reds facing the same opponent Ox fell too when Anfield welcomes Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday, fans will be hoping that he supports his teammates in the best way he can: getting well soon.
