It looks like German surgeon Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck, has worked her wonders again, this time on Newcastle United striker Oba Martins.
Oba Martins – could be back for Sunderland game
The Newcastle club were finally handed some good news today when they discovered that Oba Martins could be fit in time to face Sunderland on February 1, which is turning out to be a do or die game for Newcastle.
Joe Kinnear said today:
“Oba started training flat out yesterday, and it’ll be great to have him back in the team.”
“He’s had this niggling groin injury, but it’s out of the way now, and he should be back for the Sunderland game.”
“Danny’s certainly out of the Man City game, but we are waiting for the outcome of a scan.”
Martins underwent a hernia operation on January 12 after visiting the German clinic of world renowned specialist Dr Ulrike Muschaweck.
The woman surgeon uses her rapid recovery techniques that include local anaesthetic to get sportsman back very quickly from hernia related operations, and it looks like that will happen with Oba too.
In fact we wouldn’t at all be surprised if Oba is actually fit for the Man City game next Wednesday.
However, Guthrie’s hamstring trouble couldn’t have come at a worse time for the manager, since Nicky Butt has had himself suspended – again – for the trip to Eastlands, following his red card at Blackburn.
Solution? Hey, here’s an idea – maybe we should sign a central midfield player before next Wednesday – and that will be just 5 days before the end of the transfer window – wouldn’t that be a solution – or are we missing something?
We wonder if the club have thought through that one? 😀
