Liverpool Youngster Sepp van den Berg has revealed that he has “lost all muscle strength” from his ankle ligament issue which he suffered in October.

The defender is currently on loan at German side Schalke. He joined the German giants on a loan in the summer transfer window in search of regular playing time.

Sepp started this season as a regular in the German side but unfortunately has been out since October after suffering a torn ankle ligament in the clash with FC Augsburg.

This is the first big injury van den Berg of his career to date, with Liverpool and Schalke eventually deciding on surgery after a consultation in London.

The current Schalke defender has been working his way back since October. He is hoping to be fit for the second half of the campaign to complete his successful loan spell.

Return is still unknown

But according to the report, the injury is way more serious.

According to Revier Sport report, the Liverpool defender claims

“ But I try to forget about it. If I thought about it too much, I might get a bit scared that it would happen again.”

“ I couldn’t even realise what had happened at first. Sure, my ankle was swollen and looked bad, but I had the feeling that I would soon be able to get back into training. Mentally, I hadn’t flipped the switch yet.”

The current German giant’s back also claimed

“ My complete focus has been on getting back into team training. Basically, I lost all my muscle strength in my left leg after the operation.”

“ And I have to build up those muscles again. That’s what I’m currently doing. It’s about basics. But when I’m back on the pitch with the boys, I want to be better than before.”

Although his time of return to the pitch is still uncertain.
