Liverpool have set out the time frame for Rhian Brewster’s return to action following surgery on his ankle.
The U23s starlet damaged the ligaments in his right ankle during a recent outing against Manchester City, subsequently leaving the field on a stretcher.
It marked a crushing setback for Brewster amid another impressive season for the promising teenage striker.
Brewster had surgery earlier this week and is expected to be out for between three and four months, according to Liverpoolfc.com.
Brewster has enjoyed a swift rise to stardom over the last couple of seasons, playing starring roles at both domestic and international level.
The Englishman earned a runners-up medal in the U17 European Championships last May, before finishing top scorer in October’s U17 World Cup-winning campaign.
His latest setback is a somewhat untimely one, with loan moves for the more experienced youth players inviting Brewster to establish himself as the next in line to push for the transition.
Having recovered admirably from his injury blow prior to the senior team’s pre-season tour, which he had been set to feature in, Brewster starts his rehabilitation with the resilience to maintain a positive outlook until his return.
The evidence is already there to suggest little can keep him down, with his self-belief and strong-minded approach proving to be contributing factors in his progression on Merseyside.
Come back stronger, Rhian.
