Football News

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been dealt another major blow with the news that striker Danny Ings will miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury.

According to the Guardian, Ings twisted his knee during his first training session under Klopp - and test have subsequently shown that the 23-year-old has ruptured his cruciate ligaments.

This latest news comes less than 24 hours after it was announced that Liverpool left-back Joe Gomez will also miss the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign after suffering a serious knee injury during England Under-21s’ 3-0 win over Kazakhstan.

Ings, according to the report, now has virtually no chance of being fit for England’s Euro 2016 campaign in France next summer.

The former Burnley star only made his international debut on Monday night, against Lithuania in Vilnius.

Big blow for Liverpool

Ings was beginning to find his feet at Liverpool before the international break and scored against local rivals Everton in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

His injury means Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi are the only first-team strikers at Klopp’s disposal, although Roberto Firmino could be used in a more advanced position over the coming months after this latest blow.
