I’ve blogged a couple of weeks ago about Rio Ferdinand’s injury situation and how Ferdinand thinks he’s nearing his comeback.
But it looks like his health woes are still not behind him. Ferdinand recently had an injection in order to help ease his back problems that have been blamed as the cause for all of his health problems.
Ferdinand has been out of action since the last week of October and even though Sir Alex Ferguson has said that Ferdinand is not out on the long-term, he has missed 13 games already. At this point, there really is no good news yet and his schedule for a return remains uncertain.
Ferdinand has remained optimistic about his situation and has even promised that he will be available for the World Cup in South Africa next summer.
I admire Ferdinand for keeping an optimistic attitude despite his injury and health problems. It’s tough not being able to know whether you can really get back to your old fighting form but Ferdinand is keeping his chin held high and I believe that his positive attitude will help him recover more quickly from his injury.
At the launch of his new charitable Foundation last week, Ferdinand insisted his place at next summer’s World Cup in South Africa was not in jeopardy.
It was an important statement, not only in terms of a health bulletin but also the positive attitude it betrayed.
