Jordan Henderson has revealed his dismay at seeing injury-prone Liverpool star Danny Ings pick up another long-term injury.

The Liverpool captain was distraught to find out that his teammate was set to miss the rest of the season, as he undergoes an operation to fix cartilage in his right knee.

Posting on his personal Instagram account, Henderson told fans that the former Burnley striker will come back stronger than he is now.

Liverpool’s number 28 has already been out injured for more than a year during his time at Anfield, after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during Jurgen Klopp’s first training session as Liverpool boss.

Gutted for this man, but he will be back stronger! We are all behind you! 👊🏻 #YNWA

The 24-year-old 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 his cameo appearance, Ings suffered a knock on his right knee after an innocuous challenge- different to the original injury sustained on his left knee.

Now, the one-time England international is set to undergo an operation to fix the injury which is believed to keep him out for 7-9 months to the dismay of Liverpool fans and players alike.
