Liverpool boss gives the future update of the forgotten man

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that the forgotten man Danny Ings is in his thoughts after a successful playing return with the U23 team.

The striker hasn’t featured since making his comeback from a knee injury in September’s League Cup game against Leicester City.

The German manager said: “We don’t have a problem with Danny,”

“He is not far away. He played in the inter-squad game on Tuesday. He was lively and the best news is that he is fit.

“But the problem is that we have strikers who have been training for four or five months, and he has been in and out. In this position, we have Roberto, Daniel and Dominic and more or less they were always involved. I cannot make the squad bigger. Danny looks good, sharp and everything.”

Ings has been linked with a loan move away from the Merseyside club in January transfer window with Newcastle United among a host of clubs keen to secure his services for the second half of the season.

Klopp added: “There’s nothing to say about that at the moment.

“When we have decided about things like this, we’ll call you 20 minutes later.”

Ings’ record for the Merseyside club stands at just three goals in 12 matches for the Merseyside club.
