Arsenal’s injured captain Cesc Fabregas could be back as early as 24th of this month in the Champions League clash against AS Roma.
The Arsenal starlet has been out injured since mid December when fellow Spaniard Alonso’s tackle injured Fabregas’s knee ligament. He was expected to return after 3 to 4 months but according to his doctor Ramon Cugat, he could make a surprisingly quick recovery and be back for the match against Roma.
The doc had been asked about how Fabregas is doing and when asked if he could be back for the Roma clash, he replied:
“I think so. The Arsenal doctors said it normally takes three-and-a-half months to recover because of the way it happened. But I believe he will return quicker than then. I recognise that the player needs to be ready, to have good mobility and stability and that he needs to feel good after returning to training.
“The one that will know best is the player. I saw him last week. He passed the tests, there had been a clear improvement. He was expecting to make a speedy recovery. What is even better is that he could recover more quickly than is considered normal, which is very good.”
With the fighting character that our captain has, I always hoped he could make an earlier than expected return and it seems that is exactly what is going to happen. If his own doctor thinks so, then we have to accept his view.
It sure is the best news we could hear! I said at the start of 2009 this could be Arsenal’s year and it seems so doesn’t it?! van Persie is in the form of his lifetime, Arsenal are on a 10 match unbeaten run, Arshavin has joined the club and even has a slight chance of making his debut tomorrow and to add to the list now is that Fabregas might be back in action within a couple of weeks. This is great news and somehow I feel we might finally win a trophy this year. Ok last year it seemed like it too but still lets wait and see.
