Liverpool defender Joe Gomez shows off massive knee scar post-surgery

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has shown the nasty extent of the scaring on his left knee, after he had surgery to repair his tendon in November.

The centre-back picked up the injury while training with England and it was serious enough to mean there’s no guarantees he’ll play again in the 2020/21 season.

Football fans have been reacting on Twitter to the images of Gomez’s knee after he was pictured in the gym, stepping up his recovery from his operation.

Naturally there was a lot of sympathy from fans – no matter which club they support – at the state of the large scar on the 23-year-old’s knee and the lengths he will need to go to to be ready to play competitive football again.
