Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes ‘disappointed’ with Liverpool recall of Danny Ward


Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has made it know that he is’disappointed’ that Liverpool have recalled on-loan goalkeeper Danny Ward early.

The Welsh keeper has made 29 appearances for the Dons this season and has been a stand out for the Pittodrie side, but now it has thrown the Don’s second half of the season plans into disarray.

But with Liverpool struggling with the form and fitness of their top two keepers, manager Jurgen Klopp has made the decision to bring Ward back to Anfield.

In a statement published on the official Aberdeen website, McInnes said: “Naturally we are disappointed Liverpool FC have opted to recall Danny.

“We were very fortunate to secure Danny during the summer and we thank Liverpool for believing Pittodrie would be a good platform for Danny to continue his development.

“His progression has been clear for all to see and he’s demonstrated to everyone what a capable keeper he is.

“Everyone at AFC would like to thank him for all his efforts during his time here and wish him all her very best in his future career.”

The 22-year-old could make his debut for Liverpool in Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at Anfield.
