Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter is hoping to return to the training pitch within the next two weeks. Rossiter, 19, suffered a hamstring injury in a Europa League clash with FC Sion in December, having only just returned from a similar injury suffered while on international duty with England's Under-19s.
While he is unsure when he will be available for selection again, the Liverpool academy graduate is hopeful that string of frustrating knocks is behind him. "I'm doing quite well, it's progressing well at the moment," he told Liverpool's official website.
"I think I've been out around eight weeks now, but I'm hopefully looking to be running around the next two weeks. It's been frustrating but hopefully there are better things to come soon.
"I picked up a hamstring injury in October which kept me out and I was back fit for two weeks, but to pick up another injury has been frustrating. Hopefully it all turns around soon and I get a bit of luck."
Rossiter has been limited to just four first-team appearances this season, just one of those coming under Jurgen Klopp. While his spell on the sidelines has frustrated him, the midfielder says he can take inspiration from Jon Flanagan, who recently returned to the first-team after 20 months out.
"Every day I'm here working hard in the gym and I look outside and see everybody training," he added. "It's a bit frustrating but I know I'll hopefully get my chance in [matches] and in training. I think that's always the case, you've always got to work hard.
"Jon Flanagan was out for around 18 to 20 months and I look at him, he's come back in and done brilliantly in the Stoke game and Exeter game. It's something I'll look to do."
