Liverpool youngster Kaide Gordon appears to have begun light exercise post–injury during the Reds’ midseason camp in Dubai.
In his first season with the first team in 2021/22, the 18-year-old had a breakthrough year. He made four appearances, including three starts in Carabao Cup and FA Cup games. And becoming the club’s second-youngest goalscorer in club history.
However, the teenage winger’s progress has been put on hold since February due to a long-term pelvic ailment.
Gordon is one of the 32 players traveling with Liverpool to Dubai. He was seen during the friendly match against Lyon on Sunday.
Although Gordon hasn’t yet recovered enough to resume full training. And his most recent Instagram post shows him jogging around the fields at Liverpool’s headquarters in the United Arab Emirates.
In a statement made earlier this month, academy director Alex Inglethorpe said that taking that step was planned and that playing again on grass “is always a good indicator for any athlete.”
When will Kaide Gordon resumes full training after injury
The young athlete’s return to full training is still a ways off. So individual ball work will probably be the next step in his recovery.
It’s simple to overlook the potential Gordon displayed upon joining the senior team a year ago. It is mainly considering how many members of the club’s first team took him under their wing.
Gordon, a right-sided offensive player with a solid left foot and a keen eye for goals, blended in well during his senior-level appearances.
Another talented right-winger has come through the school during his absence, Ben Doak. Doak joined from Celtic last summer—standing out among the younger age groups this year and travelling with the team to Dubai.
After a forgettable 2022, Gordon will be looking to pick up where he left off with his promising development in the coming year.
