Ings Liver­pool in­jury curse strikes again

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Danny Ings’ in­jury mis­ery at Liver­pool con­tin­ued yes­ter­day with a se­ri­ous right knee in­jury rul­ing out the Eng­land in­ter­na­tional for the rest of the sea­son, the English giants an­nounced. The 24-year-old striker-who missed most of last sea­son with a left knee prob­lem-picked up the lat­est in­jury after com­ing on as a sub­sti­tute in last week’s 2-1 vic­tory over Spurs in the EFL Cup. Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp said he was dev­as­tated for Ings, who joined from Burn­ley for £6.5mil­lion ($8mil­lion, 7.2m eu­ros) plus £1.5m based on per­for­mance re­lated fac­tors. “To say we are gut­ted would be an un­der­state­ment; he is such a great boy and has worked so hard that he de­serves bet­ter luck than this,” Klopp told the club web­site. “It is typ­i­cal of Danny’s per­son­al­ity, on and off the pitch, that he picked up this in­jury to his knee when coura­geously try­ing to win the ball back for his team by mak­ing a tackle.” Klopp said Ings, who won his only cap in a Euro 2016 qual­i­fier against Lithua­nia with in­jury rul­ing him out of con­tention for a place at the fi­nals, said Ings’ strong char­ac­ter would stand him in good stead for bounc­ing back again. —AFP
