Eduardo has been talking to the Croatian press about his pre season training and has been very upbeat about his fitness and his troublesome ankle.
“Everything is great, nothing hurts me. Last week I worked with a fitness coach and physio. I did all that was required and Arsenal are very pleased with my recovery” he said.
He also revealed that no special care is needed or taken with regard to his ankle.
Remember he had to undergo revision surgery on the left ankle to remove small metal screws which were originally placed there to assist in his recovery from the horrible injury he sustained more than a year ago. The doctors also removed a bone that had been troubling him during the close season.
“Every day we are scheduled exercises running with the ball. Still, we mostly work on improving our fitness levels and endurance. No specific exercises are carried out for the operated ankle”
Arsène Wenger and Slaven Bilic will have some reason for feeling satisfied as they sent Eduardo to Croatian physiotherapist, Bojana Radanovic, who did a brilliant job on the player while he was holidaying in Zagreb.
Eduardo believes that his first game will be in Austria.
“We are leaving for Bad Waltersdorf next week, on Monday. We will play two games where I should get (playing) time in one” Eduardo said.
Let’s hope all goes well.
