“I’ve been working in the gym with weights and on the bike and it has been alright,” revealed Ledley. “I’ve worn the boot at home, but have now been told I don’t need to anymore so that is good news.
“I’ll be back soon and it is improving quickly,” he continued, before adding that taking a rest was the correct course of action.
“It was building up gradually, just a feeling at the sole of my foot that wasn’t right. It is something I have felt before and I knew what would happen next. I spoke to the physios, went for a scan and it was right that I rested when I did.
“There are plenty of good games to be involved in and everyone in the squad wants to play. Competition for places is fierce, which is good and keeps everyone on their toes.
“There is a lot to look forward to at the moment and players who are out want to get back as soon as possible.”
Ledley King reports good progress in his recovery from the foot injury that resulted in his being absent for our last three games.The skipper suffered bruising to his left foot and was withdrawn from recent fixtures as a precaution to avoid the possibility of further injury. He has now been able to shed the protective boot and hopes to return to the training pitch in the near future.
