Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson looks set to provide manager Jurgen Klopp with a well timed injury boost by ramping up his fitness following the international break, according to the Daily Express.
Henderson, who broke his metatarsal six weeks ago, is now stepping up his recovery by doing outdoor work at the club’s Melwood training base (via Express).
The Express reports that the England international was due to miss eight to ten weeks with the injury, but he will also need to overcome a troublesome heel problem as well before stepping up his return to full training.
Henderson travelled to New York to visit a specialist in September after feeling pain in his heel during games against Stoke and Bournemouth in August (via Express).
He took a series of injections in a bid to cure the persistent niggle, only to fracture his metatarsal just 72 hours later in training (via Express).
The 25-year-old is yet to feature under Jurgen Klopp, but The Express states that he must curb his eagerness to get back into the action to ensure that his injury concerns have well and truly been overcome.
