Joe Gomez insists it’s very ad to have missed the most part of Liverpool‘s fantastic campaign.

The defender suffered a leg injury last year against Burnley which saw him getting ruled out for the most of the season. Gomez had been the preferred choice for Jurgen Klopp alongside the excellent Virgil van Dijk but hasn’t been featured for the rest of the season with Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip deputized in his absence.

The English international has started his rehabilitation phase and is expected to make an appearance in the Champions League Final against Totteham Hotspur in Madrid.

Gomez said, “It’s probably underestimated a bit how much it can affect us as footballers.

“Like it might just seem that you’re injured and now you just watch the boys, but it hurts – especially a year like this that was pretty historic.

“To watch a large majority of those games, having had a taste of it at the beginning, was difficult to take. Obviously it was nice to overcome it and get a bit of involvement at the end.

“We’ve just got to move on now and we’ve got a big game. There’s a lot of ups and downs, but it’s all a learning curve.”
