It’s been a long time but Davide Santon is now on his way back to playing again, and Italian International is training three times a day, but still doesn’t have an exact timeline when he’ll be back.
Davide Santon in action last season
Davide had a knee injury he sustained in early summer, but then in late August he got the bad news that he would in fact be out until November, when the surgeon had a closer look at the knee.
Davide has been interviewed by Sky Sports today and has some good news:
“I’m training three times a day, every day. I start seven o’clock in the morning and finish around three or four o’clock in the afternoon.”
“It is hard but because I have been out for a long time, I have to see how I feel with my knee, get used to the pitch again.” “I can’t say whether it will be three weeks, one month, two weeks, I don’t know.”
“I was happy for Ryan Taylor, especially when he was like a goalkeeper at the end of the Man City game, when he stopped that ball right on the line.”
“After two years he came back on the pitch and gets the biggest victory.”
“We are playing amazing and the manager is doing amazing as well, because only one month ago we were in a relegation position.” “Now we are playing as a group and working together, that is the key.”
We hope to see Davide fit again as soon as possible, but with local lad Paul Dummett currently holding down the left-back spot and Massadio Haidara showing he can also play at left back with some distinction, the way back into the first team for the Italian will not be easy.
But competition for places brings out the best in players, and it wouldn’t surprise us if when Davide returns he is in good form, and will push hard to regain that left back position.
That’s all good news for Newcastle United.
