Liverpool loanee Phillips excited for Stuttgart return

Stuttgart defender Nat Phillips is excited for the Bundesliga 2 to restart this weekend.

Phillips, on loan from Liverpool, will line-up for Stuttgart against SV Wehen Wiesbaden after more than two months without games.

"I'm really excited," Phillips told the club's website. "As well, with the situation our team is in – pushing for promotion – the stop came at an unfortunate time for us because it felt like we were starting to gather momentum and head in the right direction.

"So, it's nice to get back up and running again and hopefully finish those nine games off with a strong finish and get the promotion we want.

"It has certainly been a different experience - in everyday life it has for everyone - but it has not been a massive issue at all professionally, you've just got to be sensible with it and respect the rules and guidelines that have been given to you."
