Liverpool striker Divock Origi has told team mate Danny Ings that “you’ll never walk alone” after his season-ending injury.
The former Burnley forward has been ruled for 7-9 months after agreeing to undergo an operation to correct ligament damage in his right knee.
Posting on his personal Instagram account, Belgium international Origi posted a picture of Ings along with the historical phrase taken from the Anfield anthem that is synonymous with Liverpool fans.
Ings’ devastating injury comes after a year on the sidelines last term, after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in Jurgen Klopp’s first training session as Liverpool manager.
Thankfully, the new injury is on Ings right knee, different to the injury sustained by Liverpool’s number 28 last season which was on his left.
Ings looked to have ended his year-long injury nightmare by coming on as a substitute against Tottenham in the fourth round of the EFL Cup during their 2-1 victory that has set up a quarter-final tie against Leeds.
But during his cameo appearance, the 24-year-old suffered a knock on his knee after an innocuous challenge that has now appeared to end his season.
In other Liverpool team news, this former attacking ace has revealed that playing for Liverpool was just a stepping stone.
