Rodgers Sings Ibe Praises

Rodgers Sings Ibe Praises

Brendan Rodgers has described Jordon Ibe as “absolutely sensational” after he made his return to Liverpool training this week.

The Anfield winger has been missing since February after suffering a knee injury in the Europa League defeat to Besiktas.

In that time, Rodgers has been forced to chop and change his personnel at right-wing back, including a recent spell for Raheem Sterling out there.

But Ibe is now back fit – and after praising the 19-year-old, he revealed he could make it into their team for Monday’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United.

He said: Jordon Ibe will come back in. I have got to say, he has looked absolutely sensational in training.

“He has been out for a while but he has been out on the field for a couple of weeks now, doing his preparation work and he has joined in training.

“He has looked absolutely outstanding – he has got real natural fitness. He’ll come into the squad for Monday night. Some of the others that have been out are still out.

It’s a boost for Liverpool as they go into the final games of the season with faint hopes of securing a Champions League spot for next term.
