Diogo Jota pictured in Liverpool training as injury healing continues
Diogo Jota was pictured recovering from a knee injury at Liverpool’s training ground, with the club saying he was making “good progress”.
Jota joined the Wolves Reds this summer and he was having a good start to life on Merseyside before being sidelined, returning nine goals from his first 17 games in all competitions. This included a nice hat trick against Atalanta in the Champions League.
Jota has been out since injuring his knee in a dead rubber against FC Midtjylland, although images posted on Liverpool’s official website suggest his recovery is intensifying.
In the video, the striker can be seen performing exercises both in the gym and on the training ground, with the club saying his rehabilitation is on track.
“Jota is making good progress on the path to full fitness, as our photos show below,” a statement read.
“Under the guidance of club physio Chris Morgan, the 24-year-old did some gymnastics work before heading out to the outdoor courts for running exercises.”
It is not yet known when Jota will make his first-team return with Jurgen Klopp confirming he will not be in the running for the Reds’ meeting with Brighton on Wednesday night.
The most recent concrete update Klopp gave on Jota’s fitness came ahead of Liverpool’s 1-0 loss to Burnley last month, with the German saying (via Liverpool Echo): “Diogo is in a few weeks .
Won’t be the next one or both. He needs time. “
