Injured Liverpool Star Flies Out To Undergo Rehabilitation At Private Clinic
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has been sent to a specialist clinic in Qatar to continue his rehabilitation from a serious thigh injury
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has been sent to a specialist clinic in Qatar to continue his rehabilitation from a serious thigh injury, according to the Daily Mail.
Lallana hasn’t featured so far this season after suffering a thigh injury in training on August 4th ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League opener against Watford at Vicarage Road.
The England international was ruled out for several months after a rupture in his thigh was confirmed and he was forced to use crutches after his leg was placed in a brace.
However, the 29-year-old has been making steady progress with his recovery in recent weeks and stepped-up his comeback after starting to run outside at the end of last month.
The Daily Mail claim Liverpool have now decided to send Lallana to the renowned Aspire facility in Qatar to continue his rehabilitation with a member of the clubs medical staff joining the midfielder to help oversee his recovery at the Aspetar sports clinic.
The newspaper says Jurgen Klopp is delighted with Lallana’s progress so far and while he’s reluctant to put a specific date on his return, the Mail suggest that as long as he doesn’t suffer any setbacks the player should be back playing again in the middle of next month.
November was always understood to be the target for Lallana so it will come as a welcome boost to Klopp that he’s on course to making his return on schedule.
Liverpool face a gruelling fixture list that sees them play 13 games in three different competitions in just 44 days following the next international break so Lallana’s return to action will be well timed.
However, he might face a fight to regain his first team place as Philippe Coutinho has moved in to Lallana’s central position following the arrival of Mohamed Salah while Emre Can and Gini Wijnaldum have also been performing well this season.
