Liverpool forward Danny Ings made his return to first-team action with the Reds at the start of the season after an injury nightmare that had plagued his career on Merseyside.

The 25-year-old only made the switch to Anfield from Burnley in 2015 but suffered two consecutive cruciate knee ligament injuries – both of which were season-ending.

Since recovering, Ings has slowly pushed for more matches.

Of the six outings he has made in this campaign, five of them have come since December, leading to a feeling he could be handed further opportunities.

And despite the slow progress following injury, his manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that his forward is nearing a point where he will be given more game time: “Yes, absolutely [Danny is knocking on the door],” the manager told LiverpoolFC.com.

Klopp has remained fully supportive of the striker that he thinks has the talent to play for Liverpool.

However, it would seem that supporters are less than impressed with the attacker’s return to full fitness – some even are wanting to see him out of the club this summer, in spite of his deal which runs until 2020.

The former Burnley star is competing with the likes of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane for a place in attack which given the form of the trio it is unlikely that the manager will want to disrupt that bond.

When supporters were asked on social media, whether they wanted to see Ings at the club next season, the response was an overall no.

Many of them felt that the forward did not fall into the so-called “world-class” category and that Liverpool had moved on while he had been sidelined.

Here is a selection of replies on Twitter:
