Joe Gomez thrilled to be back for Liverpool after 8-month absence

Joe Gomez was thrilled to make his playing comeback for Liverpool in yesterday's friendly defeat to Hertha Berlin.

It was Gomez's first appearance since suffering a knee injury in December 2020.

Post-match in Innsbruck, he posted a message of appreciation on social media for the support he received on the road to this evening's comeback.

“It's hard to put into words my gratitude at having been able to put on the red shirt again," wrote Gomez.

“It's been a period that has severely tested me physically and emotionally. One that I don't feel I would have come through without the support of those around me.

“A special thanks to the phenomenal surgeon, physios and rehab specialists who've guided me through this – each one of them knows how grateful I am.

“Big love to all the LFC family for your support and words of encouragement; that's staff and fans.

“And most importantly to my wife and family, who are my reason to do it all. I'm thankful. Onwards and upwards."
