James Milner sends Joe Gomez message after Liverpool injury blow


James Milner is convinced Liverpool team-mate Joe Gomez will return stronger from his latest devastating injury setback.

Gomez is facing a battle to play again this season after undergoing surgery to repair a tendon damaged while on international duty with England earlier this week.

The 23-year-old was absent for more than a year earlier in his Liverpool career after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury while with England under-21s in October 2015, and missed four months after fracturing his leg in December 2018.

And Milner is convinced that experience will help Gomez recover from his latest spell on the sidelines, where he has joined fellow centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who has started his rehabilitation following ACL damage sustained last month.

“We’ve spoken about Virg a lot, Joe is exactly the same – devastated for him,” said Milner.

“An amazing guy, first and foremost and most importantly, and you don’t want to see it happen to anyone but (especially not) someone like him.

“As a player, how good he is as well. People forget how young he is and what he’s done at this club already and how much he has improved and continues to improve.

“He’s still really young. He’s been through this once before with a bad injury and came through it stronger, so if anybody has got the mental fortitude to deal with this, it’s him.

“He has been through it before and he came back stronger, and I’m sure that will be the case again.”

Milner, speaking to Premier League Productions, added: “Obviously we’re gutted for him and how well he’s been playing as well. Not only for him as a player and a person, but also for us as a team it’s obviously a big miss.

“But, like I say, he’s mentally very strong and he’ll get through it and come back stronger. We’re obviously all here with him and supporting him as much as we can.”
