Michael Owen has said he is right on track to recover from his ankle ligament injury within six weeks, as was initially diagnosed.
Michael Owen – back in 3 weeks
Michael spoke today in the official match day program:
“I’m right on schedule for a mid-March return,” “After I damaged my ankle ligaments three-and-a-half weeks ago the specialist said it would be six weeks to recovery, and that’s exactly what it looks like being.”
“It should be full training for me by the start of March and, hopefully, fully fit and available again for the game at Hull City on March 14th.”
“With the injured lads getting back to fitness the picture can quickly change. What’s important is that as many players as possible return to a winning team firing on all cylinders.”
“That’s another reason why the 3-2 win at West Bromwich in our last match was so important.”
Quite honestly, after hearing yesterday that Michael had been doing so well in his recuperation in Portugal, we were hoping he would be back a little sooner, and we’re a but disappointed he will miss the Bolton Wanderers game.
Bu Michael has never been a quick healer, and the Hull City game will have to be good enough, since we’ll still have 10 games remaining, so Michael can help fire us to safety.
