Liverpool were back in training after the international break, but rising star Ben Doak had a moment to forget
After being nutmegged by Arthur Melo, Liverpool starlet Ben Doak will not want to see re-runs of today’s training rondos.
Summer commitment Arthur, who has missed much of the season due to injury, demonstrated his talent as the Reds players returned to club training following the international break.
Doak can be seen in the middle of a rondo with Curtis Jones in a video posted by Liverpool’s official Twitter account, and as he goes to close down the on-loan Juventus midfielder, he superbly drags it through the 17-year-legs. old’s
The squad, including the resurrected Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez, burst out laughing at what had happened, leaving Doak speechless as he trotted over to hug Arthur.
Doak expressed his delight at being back with the group after a worrying head injury while playing for Liverpool’s U19s, despite not wanting to relive that rondo at the AXA Training Centre.
“Happy to be back,” he wrote on Instagram.
Andy Robertson, a fellow Scot, wasn’t so kind in the comments, replying: “Season ticket in the middle.”
Following the March internationals, the Reds returned to training ahead of Saturday’s lunchtime visit to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
Nunez and Diaz’s return to first-team training gave Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp a boost. Nunez did not travel with Uruguay for their recent matches due to an ankle gash that prevented him from participating. Diaz has been gradually regaining fitness following a setback in his rehabilitation from the knee injury he sustained in the loss to Arsenal in October.
