Florian Lejeune seems to be making excellent progress in his rehabilitation from the ACL knee injury he suffered in training in August,
He has been recovering in Rome, but now he is almost ready to return to Newcastle and have the Newcastle medical team continue with his rehabilitation.
He’s expected to return Newcastle sometime this month, and Rafa has said maybe as early as next week.
Florian Lejeune doing rehabilitation in Rome
Florian has been giving regular updates on his Instagram account about how he’s been doing.
And yesterday morning he had this to say about his recovery:
“Hello everyone, my recovery is on schedule,” h
“It will take a little more patience before I come back onto the field but I am working very hard to get as quickly and strong as possible.”
“Thank you for all your messages.”
Rafa Benitez has been following his recovery closely and yesterday he had this to say about his center-back:
“He is getting better – you have his Instagram!”
“He will come back maybe in one week He’s doing his rehab in Rome, special facilities.”
It’s so far so good for Florian with his rehabilitation going extremely)well, and there have been no setbacks so far.
That being the case he could be ready to return to training within four months which could be early next year.
Rafa has said we have missed Florian’ s influence at the back at Newcastle so it would be excellent if the Frenchman can return to the side sometime in January.
It’s also terrific that fans are sending him regular messages to keep his spirits up.
That’s also very important.
