Good news for Newcastle fans today as Aussie Mark Viduka returned to training, following his extra long lay-off with his Achilles heel injury.
Mark Viduka - trained on Friday
Mark was training with the lads today, although we need to be a little cautious, as he was back to full training in October, but must have had a setback,
Mark’s last game was against Chelsea last May, and he had an injection for the injury, after that 2-0 defeat, and has been missing ever since.
It will take Mark a week or two to get back to full fitness, but this has to be good news, because when he does play, and that isn’t too often, he’s very good for our side.
Hopefully the coaching staff will have him on a special plan to get him fit as quickly as possible, as the big man can score the goals and leads the line extremely well, and of course is very experienced.
Joe Kinnear told nufcTV today:
“Mark is back in training today (Friday) which is good news.” “He could be a very important player if he gets back to full fitness.”
“Hopefully we’ll see him within the next few weeks.”
Good news and with Mark at least training again, long term injured players at the club are now Alan Smith and Ignacio Gonzalez, who like Mark, both have long-term Achilles injuries.
