Liverpool youngster Joe Gomez has been speaking about his injury and how it has affected him, however he has also said how glad he was to have Danny Ings there to support him,
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Gomez said
“I was absolutely devastated. I was hoping I’d be back available before too long,”
“The physio Chris (Morgan) and the doctor (Andy Massey) didn’t say anything before the scan but my knee had swollen up and I think they knew straightaway.
“When they got the results, I could tell by the doctor’s face that it wasn’t good news. To be told it was my cruciate was tough to take,” he added.
“Having Danny there for support has really helped to keep me going. I was gutted for him when I found out he had also done his ACL. He was flying – scoring goals for Liverpool and getting his chance with England,” Gomez said.
“It’s been a reminder for both of us that everyone gets setbacks in football, it’s not all plain sailing.
“We’ve been there for each other, spurring each other on. It’s been a big bonus having Danny for company. We’ve literally been side by side in everything. It’s going to be a long road but we’re staying positive,”
