Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has returned to training only a week after sustaining what appeared to be a serious ankle injury.
The Scot played in Liverpool’s pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao nine days ago where he was taken off as the Reds drew.
Robertson, 27, attempted to block a cross when the impact of the ball resulted in him landing awkwardly and rolling his ankle.
And fans expected the worst when he was seen after with a boot and crutches, but he seems to have now made a miraculous recovery after the club posted a photo of him jogging on Tuesday.
The left-back did not required to have surgery, though it was not expected that he would be back training as quickly as he has.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had said previously: “I think we got lucky with Andy, it could have been much worse.
“The footage didn’t look too good but we got lucky and it will not be too long.
“[He will return] before the international break [early September], after the international break, I don’t know.”
Do you think Liverpool will struggle without Robertson until his return? Let us know in the comments section.
Robertson was replaced by Greek international Kostas Tsimikas in the Reds’ Premier League opener against Norwich on Saturday.
Tsimikas made an impressive start to campaign as Liverpool triumphed 3-0 at Carrow Road, with Klopp praising the full-back after the match.
He said: “Kostas played very good. Then someone pulled the plug but that is normal, he played a really good game.”
Robertson will miss the weekend’s action at Anfield against Burnley which the rest of the squad have been preparing for while he trains alone.
