Jurgen Klopp: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain return to full training
FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 28 December 14:28 GMT
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned to training and might feature this season for Liverpool.
“[It’s the] best news. He started going on the pitch and from the first step he looked completely normal,” Klopp said to the media as quoted by Skysports.com
“Sometimes when players are coming back from injury and start running, you see them not really limping, but it’s not the picture you had in your mind.
“With Ox, from the first step, it looked like Ox. It was really nice, and then you had to wait for the reaction – there was no reaction, which is even nicer.
“No pressure on him, but it looks like it may be February back in normal training – late February, March, so that gives us hope that he will be back this season.
“We are usually not that excited about something like this, a lot of things can happen after being out for a long time, but it looks positive and it’s just nice to have him around with a smile on his face. He’s obviously happy and we are very happy with the improvement.”
