Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Delivers ''Best News'' On Injured Star

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made major progress in his return to fitness after a major knee injury according to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The midfielder is now running outside at the club's Melwood training complex and while he is some way off being considered for a return to the first team, the news has thrilled Klopp. 

“It’s the best news,” enthused Klopp at his press conference ahead of the game against Arsenal. 

“He started going on the pitch and from the first step he did it looked completely normal, not like sometimes when a player is coming back from an injury and he starts running and then you see them still, not really limping, but it’s not the picture you have in your mind.

“With Ox, from the first step it looked like Ox and that was really nice. Then we had to wait for the reaction – and there was no reaction, which is even nicer. No pressure put on him, but it looks like he could maybe be back in normal training in late February – maybe, I am not sure, [maybe] March. So that gives us hope he will be back in the season.

“That’s the moment; we are usually not that excited about something like this but a lot of things can happen, it’s true it still can happen a lot after being out for that long time, but it looked so positive.

“It is just nice to have him around with a smile on his face again. He very often has a smile on his face, but now with good reason. He is obviously happy and we are very happy.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered multiple ligament damage to his knee during the Champions League semi-final first leg against AS Roma in April and hasn't played since.
