Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returned to England to continue his injury rehab following several weeks of training in California as he looks to recover from his knee injury.
The midfielder has been ruled out for the season but has been making good progress and recently spent time in America in a bid to ramp up his recovery.
He has documented his rehabilitation sessions on Instagram with videos and images of himself working out in the gym, but he has now been spotted at Heathrow with a trolley full of suitcases as he heads home.
Chamberlain will miss Liverpool’s entire campaign after he damaged all the ligaments in his right knee during a Champions League clash against Roma in April.
The 25-year-old missed the remainder of the season as Liverpool lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid, and the English man also missed his country’s semi final heroics.
Rather than rushing him back and risking him re-aggravate the issue, Jurgen Klopp will allow him the full 2018-19 campaign to get back to full fitness.
Klopp admitted it would be a ‘bonus’ if Chamberlain returned ahead of schedule, but revealed back in July they were preparing for the entire season without him.
Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster recently shared a photo of him and Oxlade-Chamberlain lying in hospital beds following respective surgeries.
Klopp’s men will find out later on Thursday who they will face in the Champions League group stages as they look to go one step further than last year.
Liverpool face Leicester City on Saturday as they look to make it four wins from four in the Premier League.
