Klopp will ‘pay back’ Liverpool striker Ings

Jurgen Klopp insists he will give Danny Ings a chance to shine for Liverpool.

The 24-year-old striker is fit again after training over pre-season following his return from a serious knee injury late last season.

Ings made one appearance under Klopp last term and although he is finding it difficult to dethrone the current attackers, will be given another opportunity by his boss who admits the player deserves a bit back for his efforts.

"Danny is working hard and good, but the situation is like it is – we have a lot of strikers," said Klopp of the former Burnley star.

"He is close… what can I say? He is a wonderful boy. It's not the easiest thing when a player works really hard and then he is not involved, so of course you want to give the player something back for the unrest.

"It is not always possible – but as soon as it is possible, I will pay back."

Ings could feature in Tuesday night's EFL Cup third round clash with Derby County at iPro Stadium.
