Short-term goals are the preoccupation for Danny Ings as the Liverpool striker treads carefully along his road to a full recovery at Melwood.
The Englishman’s opening two years with the Reds have been ruined by misfortune, an anterior cruciate ligament injury prematurely ending his 2015-16 campaign before a knee complaint did the same last season.
Like several others, Ings has been a regular at the training complex during the summer to continue his rehabilitation progress and strengthen his conditioning.
That dedication has helped the No.28 feel ‘strong’ as his teammates report for pre-season training, though he is wisely refusing to look too far ahead.
“I’m doing really well at the moment,” Ings told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Timescale-wise, I’m unsure but I’m feeling closer and closer every day. I’m back doing ball work. My fitness levels are getting back, it has been a while. I’m enjoying it and I’m feeling strong.
