Joe Gomez is taking big steps in his recovery from a season ending injury according to Jurgen Klopp. Gomez posted a video on Instagram on Friday showing him doing some intense workouts. Klopp told the press that he has been running outside, which is a new development in his progress.
“They all are [on track], Joe as well.” The Liverpool manager said. “Joe is outside running now and all these kind of things, which is obviously always a big step after all injuries.”

“He looks fine when he is running, no real reaction in the knee, which is very important. It obviously still takes time but he’s in a good way. Like Virg, Joel and Hendo [are].”
It’s really crazy that Liverpool has lost so many players to season ending injuries like this, but it’s good to see them recovering. Klopp was also asked about any new injuries ahead of the clash with Leeds on Monday night.
“No, [there is] nothing,” said Klopp. “I only thought [about the question] because usually I always have some, [but] no new ones.”
