Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier wishes Liverpool striker Danny Ings luck in chance meeting

The Liverpool striker is out with knee ligament damage.

There is no doubt where Danny Ings would have liked to have been this week. His good start to the season with Liverpool saw him called into the England squad and it looked like being a good move from Burnley.

Unfortunately things then took a turn.

He suffered a serious knee injury earlier in the campaign and will be out until the New Year. That meant he could not join up with the England senior squad for the games with Spain and France this week.

But he did get a get well soon message from a Southampton legend today.

The relationship between Liverpool and Southampton has been strained recently. The Merseyside club have snatched Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren from St Mary's in recent times.

But Matthew Le Tissier was still happy to see the player today, tweeting:

Ings previously lived in the same area as Le Tiss when a Bournemouth player and this is his boyhood area so the pair running into each other is not a strange occurrence.

But the Southampton legend might want Ings to do well, but likely not Liverpool.
