Layton Stewart happy being back for Liverpool after 13 months out

Layton Stewart is delighted to be back in action at Liverpool.

The striker has returned this season after 13 months on the sidelines due to injury.

“It’s great for me to be back playing again,” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “Obviously I was out for such a long time, so it’s just great to get back playing, getting minutes in my legs again and being back around the boys is good for me.

“I feel I am getting sharper in every training session. The more I play, the more minutes I get and the more training I do, I feel like I’m getting better each day. I feel like I’m starting to get into a bit of form and get my rhythm back. Before my injury, I wasn’t that mentally strong, being totally honest,” he said.

“When I had a bad game I was always hard on myself but since my injury, I know I’m mentally stronger. I know how to deal with big step-backs and little step-backs and that is helping me in my game.”
