Eduardo’s doctors now put his comeback much earlier than expected
By 1970's Gooner
As is known Eduardo has received permission by the Arsenal medical team to continue his recuperation from his horrific injury in the more familiar surroundings of Rio De Janeiro in Brazil.
As we first reported on this site, Eduardo has indeed arrived in Rio De Janeiro and begun his treatment at Clinic R9 along with its owner, Ronaldo.
Eduardo’s medical team which comprises of Dr. Runco along with physiotherapist Odir de Souza had already drawn up a schedule of what he needed to do for his recovery.
Now they have had a chance to assess the player from close hand they are much more optimistic with regard to his recovery period.
They expect that he can be back training in four months, as early as August.
If you remember the initial estimation was for a nine month period out of action with his return initially expected in November.
“Eduardo is very happy” said Narley da Silva his cousin and representative.
“He visits Clinic R9 every morning and that includes Sundays. The doctors will decide whether he will take Sundays off or not”.
This is great news for all of us Arsenal fans and indeed Mr Hill Wood and his stingy Board who will probably thank the Almighty they won’t have to dig into their pockets to fund the recruitment of another forward.
