Samed Yesil expected to make Liverpool return against Fulham [divider]
Liverpool youngster Samed Yeşil is expected to make his return for the U21 side against Fulham according to head coach Michael Beale.
“Samed has been back in for about 10 days now. After such a long time out, he hasn’t got that core fitness. But we’re hoping by the Fulham game, he’ll be ready to play some minutes,” Beale told the official Liverpool website.
Yeşil has returned to training after recovering from a double cruciate ligament injury and is expected to feature against Fulham next month.
The 20-year-old ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament for the second time in a year in January 2014.
The Reds signed Yeşil from Bayer Leverkusen for €1 million last season but he has spent much of his time in England out injured.
Liverpool also signed Emre Can from Bayer and like Yeşil he was born in Germany to Turkish parents.
The 20-year-old is eligible to represent both his country of birth and Turkey at senior international level.
Yeşil originates from the northwestern Black Sea province of Trabzon in Turkey.
