Liverpool have been handed some good news in the long wait for the return of Nathaniel Clyne. Liverpool’s number one right-back has been out injured this entire season with a back injury. Last fall, he underwent surgery to deal with the issue and he has been recovering ever since.
But it looks like he may finally be making his way back into contention.
After the Reds took their warm weather training trip to Marbella in Spain, the England international has been in full training with the team.
Don’t expect to see Clyne on Saturday when Liverpool take on West Ham, but his re-introduction into the team may soon be coming.
In his absence, Klopp was forced to find replacements for the player who has put in nearly 100 appearances for the Reds since arriving in 2015. He’s settled on rotating the right-back role between youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez. Both have done well with the added responsibility handed to them by Klopp this season, though it’s Alexander-Arnold who has impressed the most.
While we likely won’t see Clyne until March at the earliest, he’ll hopefully get a chance to contribute sometime before the season ends.
