Liverpool fans react as Nathaniel Clyne steps up return from knee injury

The defender has been sidelined since July with a knee ligament problem.

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne looks like he is stepping up his comeback from a knee ligament injury suffered during a pre-season tour.

The right-back was ruled out for at least six months in July 2019 but now looks to be on the mend.

Clyne was injured during a friendly game against Borussia Dortmund and that scuppered any chance he had of impressing Jurgen Klopp.

He finished last season on loan at Bournemouth playing 15 times in Eddie Howe’s team.

Clyne signed for Liverpool for £12.5 million from Southampton in 2015 (BBC). He has played 103 times for the Reds and for a while was England’s first choice at right-back.

The emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold saw him lose his place and he is out of contract during the summer.

It’s unclear at this stage whether or not Liverpool will offer Clyne a new deal. Having not played for the Reds for some time, he does face a real battle to earn himself an extended contract.

Following his return to training, Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to speak about the right-back, with many wishing him well.

Here is a selection of tweets from supporters after it emerged that Clyne is working his way back to fitness.
