Things start looking bright on the recovery and return part for ManUtd. Ronaldo scored on Saturday for Portugal. Both Neville and Rooney are eying to return as well.
Neville who has been sidelined since March, hopes to make his debut this Season against Chelsea on Saturday 23rd, at OT.
Roon, who’s recovery is far ahead of schedule, could already be on the bench on Saturday against Everton, or next week Wednesday for our Champions League opener against Sporting Lisbon. Although the youngster has been warned by bone and muscle specialist, Professor Chris Moran, who already worked with Rooney before the World Cup.
‘Wayne is a fit, young lad very, very keen to return as he lives to play football. But players must be held back to stop themselves causing more damage. If you come back too early, there’s a risk of re-fracturing and having a setback.
‘Full-blooded and combative players (like Rooney) are more likely to get injured but Wayne’s been very unlucky to have three.’
Last but not least, Park Ji-Sung’s recovery is on schedule and Park is set to return at the start of 2008. At the same time Park said he was confident MU would win the title again this year and the new signings would surely help us.
