Liverpool’s talented young midfielder, Bobby Clark, will have to wait a little longer for his return to action.
It has been a frustrating few months for Clark who only has five appearances to his name all season.
Having been absent since October 1, the Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle reports he “is not expected to be back in action until the New Year.”
This comes as a blow as he returned to light training in November but has clearly been delayed in his comeback.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to kick on from a strong end to last season.
The 18-year-old is originally from Newcastle but joined the Reds in 2021 and has been impressing ever since.
As a brilliant passer of the ball, he has controlled games for the under-18s and under-21s but has yet to properly make the first team squad.
He has two senior appearances under his belt but, with the Europa League a potential chance for minutes, will feel his recent injuries have meant missed opportunities in his young career.
At just 18 years old, though, he still has time to influence the first team coaches, especially if he can help Liverpool on a run in the EFL Trophy.
For him to have a chance of playing in that competition, the Reds would need to knock out Bradford in the round of 32 in December.
